Education Plus Today
In June 2014, our community center Casa de los Sueños (CDLS) opened to the joy of nearly 200 children and their parents.  Here we provide food, education, and activities in order to eliminate malnutrition, instill core values, and give them the resources they need to rise above their impoverished circumstances.  We offer our children a safe haven that keeps them off the streets, and exciting opportunities that keep them into education. In a country with the highest primary school dropout rate in Central America, our students believe that going to university is within their reach. Not only that, the children arrive to our program overjoyed to be there.  Instead of hunger, what these children – the “forgotten children” – now have, is hope. 
You can also visit them on Facebook:  
Please make out your check to The Addison Midday Rotary Foundation, put Education Plus on the memo line, and mail it to Treasurer Margie, 14616 Heritage Lane, Addison TX 75001 by June 1, 2020.
All the money raised will be donated to Education Plus.

The Spirit of Success
1776 a group of determined individuals face impossible odds. Their goal: to defeat the mightiest nation on earth. They are unorganized, have few resources, and no outside support. But they have a dream -- freedom - - and they will not give up.
Using thrilling stories from the American Revolution combined with the words of the Founding Fathers, this inspiring presentation provides direction for anyone who has a dream to achieve.
See how the actions and words of America’s first patriots still point the way to success for us today … … hear how the beliefs of the Founding Fathers became a force stronger than the best armies in the world. … listen to the words that motivated the citizens of the 13 colonies and unified them into one nation. … learn the leadership secrets that enabled ordinary people to turn the world upside down.
