People of Action
Championed initially by the late Bill Mills (“Mr Matching Grant”) and ultimately accomplished by Rotarian Gavin Keeton and the team on our club’s Service Projects committee, we are hugely proud to announce that our first Global Grant Application, for Ntsika Secondary School, has been approved (March 2020).
Targeting one of Rotary’s six areas of focus, water and sanitation, the project will connect the school’s sewage system (at present flowing into a wetland area next to the school) to the mains sewer, totally upgrade the learners’ (currently numbering 803) and staff ablution blocks and provide essential plumbing in a kitchen/scullery area.
We are enormously grateful to the Rotary clubs of Jackson Hole in the USA and Uttoxeter in the UK, other overseas clubs and their Districts and our own District for their support.
The project completion date is expected towards the end of 2020.
