Children in our communities are hungry.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been a 74% increase in food insecurity for families across the country. While food insecurity has long been prevalent in BC, the circumstances created by COVID-19 have only exacerbated the crisis.

Hunger lives in your neighbourhood. It could be right next door.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Join with Rotary Club Lions Gate you can help turn hunger into hope for a child in your community, year-round.

British Columbia has one of the highest child poverty rates in Canada with 20% of children living below the poverty line.

The ever increasing cost of rent, household expenses and childcare, has created an affordability crisis for families in our community. Basic needs like food, shelter and warmth are now in direct competition with one another. Families living in poverty are often forced to make brutal trade-offs like foregoing dinners for a week to pay the rent.

Over 163,000 children experience food insecurity. Food banks help, but many families still depend on school breakfast, lunch and snack programs to meet their children’s baseline nutritional needs. But, these programs only exist during the week.

Families in our community are struggling to keep food on the table over the weekend.

Here’s a video on the last cheque presentation made to the local Backpack Buddies of North Vancouver.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.

Learn more about the disease

Our goal

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we’ve reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

CPR & AED High School Training Program

Thanks to the tremendous support from Rotary Club Lions Gate, the program in the North Vancouver School District is now set up. Schools will receive the training equipment and teachers will be trained as CPR and AED Instructors for their students. Schools then own the program and teachers empower all students to help save lives.

These students are empowered to save lives whether it’s a parent, grandparent, or stranger suffering a heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest, or stroke; or a friend or child involved in a choking, asthmatic, diabetic, or drowning emergency.

Early CPR combined with early defibrillation can increase survival rates for cardiac arrest victims by up to 75%, according to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. However, current survival rates are low because most people don’t know CPR or how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)—a small, easy-to-use device with voice prompts that can tell when a heart stops beating effectively and can deliver an electric shock to help restart the heart.

Knowing CPR Means Knowing How To Save Lives.

  • Schools Funded For Training: 5 Schools in SD44
  • Students To Be Trained: 1,000 Students
  • Cardiac Arrests Per Year: 40,000

The ACT Foundation

The Advanced Coronary Treatment (ACT) Foundation along with our community and national health partners are working together with schools and communities across British Columbia to establish the lifesaving CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training program for youth.

Local Youth Projects

Rotary believes in helping and developing the next generation of leaders. Our local youth project are designed to help younger leaders build leadership skills, expand education and learn the value of service. Our focus is Youth at Risk and many of our projects, present and past, are a reflection of that dedication to the youth of the North Shore as well as internationally.

Donating as an individual can result in a very satisfying feeling and can offer tax advantages. Along with personal donations, many companies also choose to donate to non-profit organizations, which, not only makes a difference, it can also be good for your company’s public relations and engagement of employees.

How do we normally donate our youth project funds? Some examples of past and current charities are:

    • Student Scholarships – RCLG provides post secondary, Academic and Vocational Scholarships for students who have overcome significant physical, emotional, mental and/or social challenges and still qualify to graduate from Grade 12.

 

    • Boys and Girls Club – RCLG is a vital support to the Boys & Girls Club of North Vancouver. We donate needed equipment and provide hands-on support for cleaning, organizing, painting and repairs to the Boys & Girls Clubhouse. We also volunteer at their annual family Christmas Pancake Breakfast and fund camperships to the Boys & Girls Club summer camp. Examples of International Projects.

 

    • ONE TO ONE Literacy’s mission is to help children develop literacy skills for life. ONE TO ONE is a unique children’s literacy program which provides one-to-one tutoring to elementary school-aged children within the school setting. Their approach is to initiate early, critical intervention into the lives of at-risk children, and our trained volunteer tutors work with these struggling students in collaboration with classroom and resource teachers.

 

    • Rotary Youth Exchange – is Rotary exchange program for students in secondary school. Rotary sponsors young people around the globe to experience new cultures. RCLG sponsors both inbound and outbound students.

 

  • Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) – is a leadership experience organized by Rotary where young adults develop leadership skills while having fun and making connections.

Over the past 5 years Rotary Club Lionsgate has donated $64,935 to the charities above and we are hoping to increase this amount in the coming years.

*Businesses and individuals that choose to donate to our youth projects will receive a taxable donation receipt.
