Atlanta West End

21 Week Racial Equity Challenge

What It Is:

The project is based on the United Way of Greater Atlanta’s 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge. The self-guided on-line United Way challenge was promoted by all three Rotary Districts in Georgia to all Georgia Rotarians in March, giving all “the opportunity to take a deeper dive into the discussion of racial equity and healing.” We chose this challenge because it has been promoted by Rotary's Georgia Districts, is local to the Greater Atlanta community and is educational in scope. It contains content that is research and data based, and contains various interactive ways to learn about racism and discrimination, their harmful effects on us all, and actions to take to overcome it.

District Grant - Kids Boost

Our Club was awarded $1,750 to help support Kids Boost. Kids Boost is a nonprofit designed to empower future philanthropists and social entrepreneurs ages 8 to 14. They give each participant $100 in start-up funding and a one-on-one coach to achieve his/her own fundraising idea for helping a charity they love. On average, the Kid projects turn that $100 into $1,850 for deserving charities. Eighty percent of money raised goes to their charity and 20 percent goes back to Kids Boost to help other kids start projects. They create a “cycle of giving” so more children learn the power of giving back.

With a modest level of commerce in stable economic periods, Meriwether has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and faces the loss of many local small businesses. Additionally, rural areas are more prone to poverty and subject to higher rates of social problems.

After visiting respective school systems and communities for about two weeks, the teachers bring back experiences to their students, faculty, and community. It is also a reward for deserving teachers who are never recognized enough for their contributions to the youth in their communities.
