What Is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age.

District 5495 (northern central AZ) is working on a Rotary Foundation Global Water Grant to provide homes on the Navajo Nation with inside running tap water.  There are over 200,000 Native Americans living on 25,000 square miles of land with 40 percent without inside tap water and/or a toilet along with 44 percent of the children in poverty. 
 
It is estimated that the average American home consumes 100 gallons of water per day while the average Navajo home consumes seven (7) gallons per day.  Or putting it another way, todays toilet uses 3.5 to 5 gallons per flush. So, two (2) flushes per day can exceed a day use of water. And what about: Laundry? Bathing? Cooking? Having a glass of water?
 
Many of these people, our Arizona neighbors, presently have their water delivered into 50 gallon holding barrels in their yards by a water truck and then into the home by small container. Our goal is to install underground cisterns which pump running tap water into or selected homes (need-based) at a cost of $4,500 per home.  The homes are located within a 70-mile radius of Thoreau, New Mexico which is close to Gallup, New Mexico.
 The District Global Grant is working with with DigDeep which supplies and installs the total water system at each home. The water system consists of a 1,200 gallon in ground cistern, electric pump, sink, solar panel, battery, filter, heater and gray water leach field.

Happy Sukkot
Thank you President Christopher for sharing The Sukkot holiday with our club.  Learning about this important Jewish holiday, being welcomed guests and sharing challah bread served with your fabulous honey, cinnamon and butter dip was a much better choice than the Chief's football game.  You did a great job in constructing your sukkah as it was a very windy day!
 
Moe Cougher with Lenexa Rotary and Olathe Noon Rotary set up another great packaging event with Heart to Heart International. Our District 5710 and Clubs already donated over $38,000. This is the second Rotary hands on packaging event. As with our last event we had great participation from Overland Park, Ambassadors of West Kansas City and Western Johnson County. We also had Lenexa's in-bound exchange student Elvira Gonzalez Acosta from Canary Islands and members of the Lenexa Community Corps.
