UM Rotaract Club goes on International Service Trip to Guatamala

Last year, GSP Advisory Council member and UM Rotaract Club President Louis Albertini founded an annual international service trip that serves an underprivileged community abroad over spring break.This year, a team of 15 undergraduate volunteers travelled to Panajachel, Guatemala and were able to build 21 eco-friendly stoves for families living in rural communities.This project was funded by $2,200 raised by the students and a generous $3,500 donation from Ann Arbor Rotary. These stoves have improved the living standards of the families tremendously by providing health and financial benefits. Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored international service club for young professionals between the ages of 18 and 30.This year's international service trip was led by International Service Chair Rui Zhang.
