OGUNQUIT, Maine (AP) - A Maine-based charitable organization is awarding $200,000 over the next three to five years to the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. Officials say the money from the Tramuto Foundation will be used by the RFK Center to advance international human rights.

Donato J. Tramuto, who lives in Ogunquit is the CEO and chairman of Physicians Interactive in Reading, Mass., which provides mobile clinical resources for health care professionals.

Beginning in 2014, more than $400,000 will be dispersed to a total of four recipients, including the RFK Center. The other grants are $100,000 for scholarships for international students; $75,000 for the Frannie Peabody Center to help immigrants living with HIV; and $5,000 to the Museum of American Art in Ogunquit.
