STRIVE stands for, "Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education." STRIVE is a program where Rotary Clubs work with a high school for the purpose of motivating students to improve their school performance during their senior year. The Rotary Club of Ludington has partnered with Ludington High School to create a student mentorship program that continues to successfully mentor students year after year. The major aspect of the program is that it is student driven, yet facilitated by Rotarians.
 
This year, Rotarians mentored several students throughout the year, with six (6) students successfully completing the program. The Club also issued scholarships to support STRIVE students in studies beyond high school. The Club held its annual banquet to honor the program's graduates on May 17, 2019 at PM Steamers Restaurant in Ludington.
The Rotary Club of Ludington has developed an extensive leadership succession plan that covers the next several years. Carlos Alvarado is The Rotary Club of Ludington's President-Elect for 2019-2020, and he has begun his Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) training program. Mr. Alvarado is pictured here with District 6290 administrator, Kathy Cone Hegedus.
Chikumbuso, a grassroots project located in Ng’ombe compound, provides hope and opportunity to some of the most vulnerable women and children in the township. Chikumbuso offers free education for children, adult training and capacity building through micro enterprise opportunities, youth life skills training and outreach to the elderly.
 
Chikumbuso means Remembrance. We remember those who have died, where we come from and to do for others. Our artists earn a living making beautiful, handcrafted, fashion products for sale both locally and internationally; our school and sponsorship programs educate students and help sustain families; and, our local staff provides counseling and encouragement for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
