Alliance for Smiles was founded by 6 members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco in 2004. Since its beginnings, Alliance for Smiles has treated over 7,000 children worldwide. In June of 2020, Alliance for Smiles will be conducting a mission to Honduras. We plan to treat between 70 and 90 children during our two week mission.

Chapala Sunrise Rotary Club #86070, District 4140, Chapala, Mexico.

Ojo de Agua is a small village of approximately 300 people, nestled in Jalisco state between the Sierra Nevada mountains and Lake Chapala. It is blessed by a natural spring, but has inadequate water storage, distribution, and removal systems. Local sewage drains along a road and empties into the lake. The village is physically and culturally isolated from its local government; the villagers often fend for themselves with respect to public services, including water, transportation, trash removal, and health services.
