The Rotary Foundation was begun over 100 years ago in 1917 when Arch Klumph, from the Cleveland Club, had an idea to create an Endowment fund dedicated to “Doing Good in the World.”  Through our Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects to provide clean water, fight disease, promote peace, provide basic education, and grow local economies. We’ve also been a leader in the fight to eradicate polio worldwide. The infrastructure developed worldwide to fight polio, has also helped in the worldwide fights to eliminate other dangerous endemics such as SARS, Ebola, and now Covid.
 
Trudy Marshall, the Executive Director of Libraries Of Love is just back from her recent, annual 6-month stint in Africa and presented her latest adventures to us in her annual update to Marble Falls Daybreak Rotary on Tuesday morning, Sept 21st.
 
After visiting Africa in 2004, and taking a few books with her to read, she was amazed when the African people she encountered were so taken with her books! She learned that people in Africa did not have Libraries and therefore did not have the access to books that we in America take for granted. Trudy decided to do something about that and Libraries of Love was formed!
