We invite you to attend our project fair in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, 14-15 February 2020. Through this fair, we aim to connect Rotary clubs throughout our region to international partners, promote fellowship and collaboration on sustainable humanitarian projects.
At the fair, clubs from our region will showcase their projects, and we invite you to find a project that best fits your club’s goals. Over the course of the two days, you will have the opportunity to get to know local Rotary members and discuss your interests, concerns, and ideas with them.
By facilitating connections between Rotary districts to implement projects, we can Connect the World and increase our participation in humanitarian service and global grants. Even more, we can make full use of District Designated Funds to directly benefit our communities.
Santa Cruz de la Sierra is an enclave in the Bolivian Amazon that is 416 meters above sea level. This offers you a number of natural landscapes typical of the tropical area, a green paradise that can be enjoyed during your stay and above all, exquisite hospitality from the locals of this beautiful city.
We also invite you to visit the Uyuni salt flats, the largest continuous and highest salt desert in the world. Every year thousands of tourists come to Uyuni to discover the fantastic salt desert. The Fort of Samaipata, an Archaeological site considered the largest carved stone in the world, declared Cultural Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO is an important nearby tourist destination in Bolivia. This rocky platform is 200 meters long and 60 meters wide, has a rich landscape in nature and is conducive to guided walking.

Did you know? District grants can be used to support travel to and participation in Rotary project fairs to help districts identify project partners. As with any district grant, it is up to the district whether they permit District Designated Funds (DDF) to be used to this end.
