WHAT WE DO AROUND THE WORLD: INTERNATIONAL.21/22

The following programme for this current year has been agreed at club assembly


. . 
1. Smiling Valley School in South Africa. 

Our on-going project is to improve the conditions for the staff and students hopefully by the provision of clean drinking water at the school premises. We were fortunate to receive a District Award for 2020-21 but we have been unable to utilise this due to COVID restrictions and the associated – and hopefully temporary - breakdown in communication with the school. This will be pursued and we hope to make effective progress with this project by the extended deadline for the availability of the District Award.

2. Rotary Shoebox Scheme

3.Foundation – Polio Plus

4. International Children’s Trust – To sponsor the education of two boys in India;
5. SOS Children’s Villages – To support the education of two girls in The Gambia.

6. Action Aid – This is potentially a new initiaive currently being researched by one of our committee members who will give an overview to the committee during the first quarter of 2021-22.

In addition to the above we will also consider those causes to which we have given financial support in the past but which we have had to suspend due to financial constraints. These include 

7. Mary’s Meals
8. Disaster Aid
9. 500 Miles
10. Hope and Homes for Children
11. Sightsavers
12. Mercy Ships
13. Water Aid
To promote active Rotarian participation, individual committee members will be responsible for researching the current position, policies and priorities of these causes in the wake of COVID-19 and for reporting their findings to the committee for further consideration of our support.
