Dr. Deborah Walters, a neuroscientist and member of the Rotary Club of Unity, Maine, was honored by the World Bank at International Women’s Day just a few weeks ago on March 8. She served as a volunteer for Safe Passage (Camino Seguro), a nonprofit organization that provides educational and social services to children and families who live in a Guatemala City garbage dump.

Walters, known as the “kayaking grandmother,” traveled from her home in Maine to Guatemala in a small kayak to raise awareness of the plight of the residents. Another Rotarian doing good in the world!
