University Sunrise International Grant
The University Sunrise Rotary Club provided $500 toward a University Rotary
Club project for a new school in Dien Trung
Hamlet, a rural remote village located outside of Danang City in central Viet
The following photos are of the new school: including the name plaque on the
front wall acknowledged the donors from Rotary clubs from four districts,
matched with funds from Kids Without Borders and VNHelp:
Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates
Rotary Club of Spring Valley (New York).
Rotary Club of Mt. Vernon (Washington).
From District 5030 (Washington):
- Rotary Club of Kent Sunrise.
- Rotary Club of University Sunrise.
- Rotary Club of Queen Anne.
- Rotary Club of University District.
On November 2, the area in Dien Trung was evacuated in anticipation of the
incoming Super Typhoon (which just passed the Philippines and killed many
people and destroyed homes and businesses on several islands) and the group
of Rotarians and Friends in the Rotary HumaniTour was not able to visit the
school. At the time, the school was only 85% completed, and the delay of the
school construction was caused by the damages from the major typhoon landed
directly in Danang in early October 2006.
Son Michael Pham of the
University Club is very happy to report that the school is now completed and
the dedication ceremony is scheduled on December 17, 2006.
