Our club supports several international projects with our time and money.
Tecate Smiles
The Carlsbad Rotary club has played a crucial role in supporting Tecate Smiles, which organizes and provides free surgical care for underprivileged children in Tecate who have deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.  In the USA and Mexico, one in every 650 children has a cleft deformity. If left untreated, the deformity can cause dental problems, speech difficulties, inability to eat and the children can become social outcasts. Rotarians form the fabric by which this project is sustained. Donating your time and resources to Tecate smiles, will change these children’s lives immediately. The child comes to the clinic with the deformity and leaves without it.


Tecate House Build

Build a family a house in a day?  Yep, that's what we do. See an example in this heartfelt journey, where members of the Carlsbad Rotary Club venture to Tecate, Mexico, bringing hope and change to a deserving family. After a devastating fire left a husband, wife, and their three children without a home, they faced challenging circumstances every day. Witness the power of community, kindness, and commitment, as the Carlsbad Rotary team bands together to build a secure shelter, ensuring this family not only has a roof over their heads but a warm place to call home. 🏠❤️ Join us in this moving story of resilience, compassion, and the incredible impact of helping hands. #CarlsbadRotaryBuilds #HopeForTecate
