In partnership with Corazon, another non-profit organization that has been working to assist and strengthen communities in Mexico for over 20 years, District 5300 has participated since 2007.

Started by Christine Montan, Superbuild was carried for many years by Past District Governor, Gene Hernandez.  Gene was honored this past build with a “Blue Shirt” which is a significant recognition by Corazon!

Rotarians and others have built anywhere from one to four homes a year for families that have dedicated hundreds if not close to two thousand hours to their communities!

Their commitment does not stop there. They commit themselves to further their education, to learn new trades to gain employment , to keep their children in school, to learn how to provide food through planting gardens, and to assist their neighbors and friends in achieving their dreams as well!

 

The cost to District 5300 is $8400 for each house built which includes all mentioned above!  This year we raised enough to build four homes!  A special
thank you goes to the Pasadena Rotary Club and The Las Vegas Club. Two years in a row they have paid for two of the four homes. For the past three years, due to these clubs as well as the growing recognition that SuperBuild is achieving through the hearts of many Rotarians and their clubs, we continue to grow in the numbers of volunteers and homes built!
