It had all begun in the year 1999. A group of committed Rotarians identified 4 economically challenged children from the Union High School, Chimbel and the Club decided to lend them a helping hand. Thus was born the Educational Grant Project, which in course of years has helped to place the Club on the International Rotary Map.
