April is Maternal and Child  Health month in the Rotary year.  As outlined for this focus area, “Through grants from The Rotary Foundation, Rotarians improve access to essential medical services for mothers and their children. These efforts are aimed at reducing the number of children under age five who die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation – a figure that is currently estimated at 7 million.”
At the club level, we recently sponsored water and sanitation global grant projects in Nicaragua and supported the Evergreen club’s water projects in St. Helen, Honduras and Kenya, Project Cure’s medical supplies for a hospital in Senegal, the Littleton’s maternal and child health project in Peru, and Denver S.E. 's maternal health project in Nepal. Our mental health committee supported families and young people through sponsoring Jefferson Center for Mental Health’s educational programs: “Helping Kids Thrive” and “Mental Health First Aid”, elementary school “cool down corners'', and the Teen Mental Health Assistance Program at Golden High School. We have also positively impacted child nutrition in the Golden area through the Golden Backpack and BgoldN programs.
Club events this spring and summer needing your support and participation are:
Each quarter during 2021, our Ethics in Business Awards committee will select an organization or person for recognition for their significant contributions to our community.  The first quarter honorees are Aimee and Dean Valdez and an April 16 interview with them can be viewed here.
