The Rotary District 5470 International Service Committee educates and nurtures Rotarians and clubs working in the six  Areas of Focus.   It connects clubs   It builds relationships   It educates, assists, and may help finance clubs’ international project development and fulfilment efforts.
 It also inspires Rotarians like you who chose to visit international projects and see first-hand how Rotary Connects the World 

 
 
Chandigarh Midtown RC (D-3080, India) President Salil Bali completed the first phase of Global Grant Project #1746041 in July 2017 by Solar Electrification of Remote Himalayan Villages which included villages of Leh and Ladakh. This is the project the Edwards Rotary Club initiated and which was implemented jointly by the two clubs. Some funds were left over from the initial phase, and TRF gave authorization to add solar lanterns to the project. In October 2019,  these solar lanterns were distributed to 100 families of Butonbis village in Leh. Apparently the villagers loved them.
