Nailsworth Vumilia Link

Thu, Aug 31st 2017 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Robin Mitchell will provide an update on the two improvement projects in Vumilia, Tanzania, which Nailsworth is funding

Vumilia is a small village in Tanzania which has been helped by the people of Nailsworth to sink a bore hole in the village in order to provide a fresh water supply. Previously, water had to be carried in containers for a considerable distance. The next project is to provide school books and writing materials for the children of the village.

Robin’s presentation will cover the visit to Vumilia earlier in 2017 by representatives of Nailsworth Town, which had the following objectives:

  • To renew the commitment by Nailsworth to Vumila through the Nailsworth Vumilia Link
  • To tour the village and look at progress since the previous visit in 2012
  • To see the recently drilled borehole
  • To meet with the village elders and committee, and decide on future priorities.

'What We Do' Main Pages:

Vocational service is the essence of Rotary and serves as the foundation from which we serve our communities around the world.


The Rotary Foundation is Rotary's own charity. It raises money for End Polio Now, the Rotary Peace Fellowships and innumerable district and global grants worldwide. It supports Rotarians' efforts to change lives and serve communities.


Rotary Clubs support young people in many ways, which can be by providing funding but also through involvement in various school activities.

Nailsworth Rotary Club arranges many fundraising events each year and the funds raised in recent years have helped a wide range of organisations.

Fundraising for charities and helping members of our local community are just two of the reasons why people join Rotary. Friendship, fellowship and having fun are almost as important.
