We help support and execute projects that address some of the most urgent needs in Xicotepec, Mexico.

We are Iowa and Xicotepec Rotarians and their families, Rotaractors/Interactors, Junior Rotarians, undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and a variety of community members. We partner with the local Rotary Club in Xicotepec. Their guidance and connections are crucial to our success. Our work includes construction, dental and medical care, education and more. We have been making these trips annually since 2002, interrupted only by COVID.

Service-Learning Concept
