Rotary Club of Arkalgud Midtown, RID 3182, recently donated cows to 65 women at Arkalgud, a town near Hassan in Karnataka. The project was implemented under the club’s Samruddhi Women’s Empowerment project to help underprivileged women earn a livelihood and provide them economic and social stability.
The project, initiated last Rotary year under the leadership of the then club president B C Shashidhar, was done through a global grant with the support of RC West Springfield, RID 7890, US, and TRF. The bovines were distributed in the presence of PDG M G Ramachandramurthy and DRFC P Narayana. Shashidhar, club president B R Rajeev, secretary B C Manju and treasurer Kumar Hanyal were among those present at the distribution event. DG Dr Jayagowri Hadigal appreciated the club for the initiative.
