The Rotary International organization is dynamic with many facets. One of these is International Projects. The Guatemala Project is the first international project undertaken by the Chemainus Rotary Club. Nine members of the club travelled to Guatemala in February 2014 to help disadvantaged people in the Lake Atitlan region. They worked with local people to improve the dwellings of women and children who are currently living in homes with leaking roofs; they build 52 bed frames for those previously sleeping on wet floors, especially during the rainy season. A new team will return to Guatemala in 2015.
