Badger Prairie Needs Network

Verona-Fitchburg Rotarians help out at the Badger Prairie Needs Network. Badger Prairie Needs Network (BPNN), formerly Verona Area Needs Network, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger and addressing the root causes of generational poverty throughout the communities we serve. 

For more than 29 years, BPNN has provided food assistance to low and very low-income households in the Verona Area School District, including Verona and parts of Fitchburg and Madison.

 
Books For The World
 
Verona-Fitchburg Rotary Club helps out with 'Books for the World'.  Books for the World is a global literacy project, supervised by Rotarians, that puts used books from the United States that might otherwise be discarded into the hands of children in other countries where educational resource are in short supply.  
 
Many children whom this project reaches have never even held a book, let alone learned how to read one.  The overall goal of this project is to enhance literacy while also promoting international understanding. 
Little Free Library
 

Verona-Fitchburge Rotary club contributes to Little Free Books. Little Free Library has been recognized by or partnered with First Book, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the Library of Congress and the International Literacy Association, to name a few. Hailed by the New York Times as “a global sensation,” Little Free Library is a new but already well known non-profit changing the face of community outreach and literacy initiatives today.

 

Road Side Clean Up

Verona-Fitchburg Rotary Club two-three times a year cleans up trash along fish hatchery rd.  It is always a continual effort in keeping our city clean.  

 

Awards Given Out

Verona-Fitchburg Rotary Awards Student for Service to the Community.  

Every year Rotary is honor High School Students with scholarship money for being a great roll model to their community through various service projects. Rotary picks one student who they find to be the most out standing student and awards them a $1,000 scholarship.  Often time the choice can be difficult so rotary awards all that qualify some scholarship money.  The 2018 big winner was Lauryn Hahn!

Global Scholarship Grant for High School

Fitchburg-Verona sponsors a child who can not afford to go to college and shows promise where often times there is none.  This year we are sponsoring Esther who is from a small village in Kenya. 
   
 

Supporting Our Global Community

 
Books for The World Reaches Swaziland
 
Verona- Fitchburg Rotary Club donated boxes of books to suppprt the "Books for the World"  The Rotary Club of Manzini in the year 2015 managed to inspire and motivate the Swazi child to read. This was done through the distribution of books to schools that requested them from the Book Centre after such information was made available to the nation.  This saw a number of Schools flocking to the centre to collect books for their schools. Teachers from these schools visit the centre to select the books they want and transport the books to their schools using own transport. The centre also provided the Swaziland national Library with books for their mobile school library project.
 
In order to further promote the use of libraries in schools the club partnered with the Secondwind foundation and the Rotary clubs in Seabrook, USA to sponsor Ms Penelope Lulane on a month’s attachment with schools in the Seabrook area in the United States of America.  Ms Lulane is a teacher at Kuphuka Primary School and was in the United
States in October/November 2015.
 
The books and furniture for the Book Distribution Centre is wholly funded by the Secondwind Foundation, a non profit organisation based in  Texas, United States of America
 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
      Water Cisterns In Kenya
 
 
Water issues in Kenya's semi-arid region are increasingly becoming a chronic issue.  In many instances it is the difference between life and death.  The Verona-Fitchburg Rotary Club has decided to take action and donated a water cistern allowing for better access to potable water. 
 
Verona-Fitchburg Rotary Club choose this particular community as an acknowledgement to their committed efforts in reforestation.  Their effect of planting and caring for over 100,000 trees has cause rippling effects throughout the community and their ecosystem.  
 
Water Cisterns also reduces the need to harvest more trees. Without cisterns the rain water is lost and wood is needed in order to boil the water for drinking. Providing the community with cisterns is an important step in ending this vicious cycle.  More trees mean more water in the ecosystem and more crops land won't fall victim to issues of erosion during the rainy season.
