Club Rotario San Juan del Sur
Inaugurated in 2013, Club Rotario San Juan del Sur members gather each Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. to plan and promote service work in the surrounding communities. Rotary International has a strong presence in the San Juan del Sur area with members representing Nicaragua, Cuba, USA, Canada, and France. International Rotary Club members from the USA, Italy, France, and Canada have joined us to provide Global Grants and projects in Water and Sanitation and Education and Health. Service Above Self is Rotary’s byword internationally. See www.rotary.org for more info.
Rotarians and anyone interested in service projects are always welcome at our meetings. The HJH Foundation and SJDS Biblioteca staff were among the founding members and continue to provide leadership for our Rotary club. The Four Way Test is a Rotary motto that we have applied to our vision.

Interact Service Learning Opportunities
The HJH Foundation has been orchestrating Service Learning trips for Rotary Interact groups for several years with the partnership of the San Juan del Sur Rotary club. High-school aged teenagers and their supervisors travel to Nicaragua to participate in activities that improve the community. In the past, Interact groups have worked with us to complete water and sanitation projects, paint schools, volunteer with the mobile project, and provide education resources for the community. While these trips involve a lot of work, there is still time left to enjoy Nicaragua and participate in volunteer tourism adventures.
