While on vacation in Mexico in 1984, Ted Rose stumbled into a small village and a children’s home for underprivileged kids. That unplanned visit turned out to be a life-changing event.
A couple of years later, he and his wife Susan sold their office equipment business in northern California and moved to Colima, Mexico to devote full time to helping disadvantaged children learn skills and develop visions to improve their chances for a better future.
Their effort launched Project Amigo which now provides educational and incentive programs and higher education scholarships to 300+ disadvantaged children each year. It also provides dental, auditory and vision care, thanks to volunteers.
Ted has been a Rotarian since 1980, and is now a member of the Rotary Club of Colima. He received Rotary International’s “Service Above Self” Award in the year 2000.
Susan has been a Rotarian for twelve years, and is also a member of the Rotary Club of Colima.
Ted and Susan are both past Club Presidents and are Rotary Foundation Major Donors.
