What is sex trafficking?  Why are San Diego youth especially at risk for becoming victims?  Join us for an evening with Fernando Huerta, the California Department of Justice Task Force Commander at San Diego Human Trafficking Task Force, two survivors of sex trafficking, and Barbara Johnson from Innocence Lost.  Rotary and other organization such as City Hope and Humankind are cooperating to make this event a catalyst for action in our communities.

We especially invite youth and parents to learn more about healthy and unhealthy relationships and the warning signs of abuse and manipulation.  For more information on Sex Trafficking in San Diego visit this website: http://www.sandiego.edu/peace/faculty-and-research/research/human-trafficking-study.php

The San Diego State University Rotaract, sponsored by the San Diego Rotary Club, meets just one mile from the La Mesa Rotary Club.  Because of this proximity, the members of LMSR and SDSU Rotaract frequently visit each other at meetings and enjoy cooperating on projects.  Please visit the SDSU Rotaract website to find out more about their club, including mentoring opportunities.

The Quingoma School in Lauro de Freitas in Bahia, Brazil, is the only school serving some of the most impoverished families in the area. The school was in desperate need of new kitchen furnishings as they serve hundreds of meals to the children daily and teach cooking classes to families. Our Honorary Member, Paulo Costa received a request for financial assistance to help purchase this much needed equipment. We are a small but determined club! We quickly worked to solicit donations from our club members, other local Rotary Clubs, Districe 5340 Matching Grants and the Castor Foundation. We were able to raise  $10,000! In October, we sent the final payment to the Rotary Club of Lauro de Freitas. Now, the school will be able to complete the purchase of a bread oven, which the students and parents will use to bake bread. The hope is that they will be able to sell anything extra that they bake.
 
 Just look at what an amazing difference we have all made!!
