Autonomous Service Project Author: Natalia Bustos Pérez
The Team We're volunteers of the project, We're volunteers of the project, “Lifting up Los Coipos”, a mix of students and professionals from Chile and abroad who have been working every weekend to assist the communities devasted by the earthquake
Fundamentals of the Project We are youth with a calling for social service. Gauging the magnitude of the castastrofe that occured in our country, we know that we need to act NOW. We are aware that there exist small, rural communities in the interior that find themselves isolated, and/or receive little help at a major organizational and governmental level. We know that there exist muncipalities with scarce resources and a large number of victims of the earthquake, as is the case with Hualañe. We believe that we have to do something for these localities in need.

The school project will be constructed in 4 phases at an approximate cost of US $400,000: Stage 1: education Stage 2: services Stage 3: administration Stage 4: recreation
Rotary's Support We feel that this project embodies the principles of Rotary and the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholars program of extending cultural understanding and friendship between countries. Your investment will show support for the initiatives of Ambassadorial Scholars, youth, and professionals from more than 16 countries -- all of whom are passionate about rebuilding the lives affected by the earthquake in Chile. We ask that you contribute to this worthy cause for the protection of rural communities at risk and in collaboration with Rotary Clubs in Chile and internationally. With your collaboration, we can extend the reach of Rotary to isolated destinations in need of aid.
Rotary's Support We, the 2010 Ambassadorial Scholars in Chile, are currently seeking pledges of US$5,000 from various Rotary Clubs by the end of June 2010 in order to reach our benchmark of $100,000 and initiate the first phase of the project. Your support will be publicly acknowledged and each Rotary Club's contribution will be permanently recognized on the new school's campus. The specific budget and plans for the school are available.
