Rancho de los Ninos
 
Sandy Swan has been developing a global grant to install a 124 solar panel system at Rancho de los Ninos, an orphanage in Mazatlan, Mexico.  The system costs $91,250 USD and will achieve savings for the orphanage of at least $500,000 over the subsequent 25 years. The funding for the project includes funds from Chinook Rotary and our host club in Mazatlan, a $15,500 donation from a Rotarian couple that live in Carmel, Indiana, a Government of Canada grant and a matching grant from the Rotary Foundation.
