WHAT WE DO
Our Global Trekker family are spread across several countries of the world where each member participates according to their capacity and location.
We are are a 501c3 Tax Exempt Organization
Together we connect globally to provide 'Service Above Self'.
Like a traditional Rotary Club we also have signature service projects that we conduct in our District 7690.
Advance Learning: Scientific Calculators are presented to Walnut Cove’s Southeastern Stokes Middle School students each year with an inscription on the back 'You GOT This!' (In previous years we handed out Dictionaries and thesauruses).
Signature E-Club Service Projects
The Scholarship Award: US$500 cash is given each year for "The most improved Graduating Senior" across three high schools.
The Alleviation of Hunger: Global Trekkers support food pantry operations in eastern Stokes County and Western Rockingham County. (International members support local food pantries in their country). We believe in creating Food Security to Rise Against Hunger!
