Hope this finds you in good health.
My name is Christtel and I am supporting district team fellow rotarian Carlo Palmese in to raising awareness in the clubs of our District 4250 (Belize, Guatemala and Honduras), regarding solid waste management (plastic pollution) which is affecting not only our district but the world as a whole. Carlo and I have put together a presentation which has now been shared to all of the clubs in our district, to encourage them to work on projects towards managing this issue. To help the clubs, we are also working on the grant format to make it easier for them to work on a proposal for the Rotary Foundation, and submit a project in the Growing Local Economies area of focus.
In the presentation you will learn that in our district we have people makes a living by classifying garbage and our wish is to take care of the environment and help our communities to grow their economies by doing business out of solid waste management, as they currently do but also by implementing a model that Rotary Club Sao Paulo Vila Alpina and the Recifavela Cooperative have been working on in Brazil. 
Rotary Sao Paulo Vila Alpina project:
I am writing to International Service District Chairs, to ask you to send this email to your districts. My district needs support in funding and partnering with clubs in your district (be the international club/contact) required to submit global grants. If you are interested, please let me know to put you in contact with our district 4250 clubs.
Yours in Rotary,
