MAKING A DIFFERENCE OVERSEAS

Working alongside the Rotary Clubs of Grantham Kesteven, Oakville Toronto and Nithi Kenya

we are striving to change the futures of many young and vulnerable young women in the Meru, Kiambu and Tharaka  Nithi areas of North East Kenya.

Lack of knowledge and the availability of sanitary wear is a key issue, stopping attendance at school and giving social stigma. 

We are now developing an answer. We are leading in the fund raising for a £45,000 project which will provide two tailors’ workshops manufacturing re-usable sanitary towels and school uniforms. The units will also give training in tailoring and have a retail outlet.

Linked with this will be a Reproductive Health Outreach Programme, with health advisors out in the countryside offering help and advice.

Already in Kenya we have in progress a £4000 project to give business advice and provide credit to women. At the moment 171 women are being guided and given credit terms. This work is being developed through a well established micro credit, self-financing bank, owned by the local people. 

In Malaysia, alongside the Rotary Clubs of Lincoln Colonia and Sungai Petani we plan to invest £4500 in new equipment in their Orthopaedic and Occupational Therapy services.

Over the last year we have financed four shelter boxes to give tents and other vital supplies to assist in disaster areas.
