President David McClelland, Durga Aran & Hilary Gordon
August the Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum hosted Durga Aran and District
Secretary Hilary Gordon . Durga is a founding director of New Zealand
Charity First Steps Himalaya which was set up in 2009 to provide early
years education in remote hill top villages in Nepal. Oldmeldrum
Rotary was involved from the beginning raising funds and securing grants
from Rotary International which allowed the project to expand from an
initial 3 schools to now managing 23 schools. It was really interesting
to hear first-hand how the projects have grown, and how they are
overcoming the after effects of the last earthquake.
