Rotarian Julie Leverenz, president of the Rotary Club of Hannibal, Missouri, USA, District 6060, attended the ninth annual West Africa Project Fair 16-23 October 2013 in Lomé, Togo. With support from the Reach Out to Africa Committee, Rotarians from West African nations host this annual event to foster international partnerships, promote local service projects that need assistance, and build lifelong friendships among Rotary family members around the world. In addition to building project partnerships, fair attendees also attended workshops and panel discussions and had the opportunity to volunteer with local service projects and administer polio vaccinations. Take a look at Julie’s Rotary experience in Togo:
