Rotary is where neighbours, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change.
In common with other Rotary clubs here and around the world, during the last two years of lockdown, our club has been holding weekly Zoom meetings. We have now resumed, albeit cautiously, our regular Thursday face-to-face meetings
7 SCHOOLS GLOBAL GRANT PROJECT
EASTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA
Ntsika Senior Secondary School: R2 million Global Grant project completed in November 2020
This is the largest project ever undertaken by our club, targeting one of Rotary’s six areas of focus: water and sanitation. The school’s ablution facilities were in an appalling state, with only one toilet block operational for over 800 learners, and sewage flowing into a wetland area nearby. The project has connected the school to the municipal mains sewage system; totally upgraded the learners’ and staff ablution blocks including fully tiled walls; provided essential plumbing in a kitchen/scullery area; replaced broken downpipes and guttering and installed 4 10,000 litre rainwater tanks and erected drinking water fountains.
