Presenters Maureen Torr and Earle Newton spoke about Globe Grant Application and their success in receiving one after three years of working on it.
The Global Grant is complete for the projects in Uganda and has been fully reported. All five Rotary Clubs participated in the beginning, each donating $2,000, so the seed money was $10,000 and then an additional $72, 000 was raised.
The following projects have been completed: an operational well, washrooms, and a kitchen. These projects have benefited 1,532 people (300 families).
There were key people involved in these projects including local rotary clubs and rotations, one who is an engineer. A key official who played a major role is Rebecca Mendoza.
Maureen and Earle asked the Club if they would be interested in starting a new project on the other side of Uganda or build a hospital and/or a vocational training centre at the original site. There was support from the membership for Maureen to investigate if there was enough support from other clubs to build at the original site.
President Steven thanked Maureen and Earle for their presentation and the usual donation will be given to the Salvation Army Bethany Home on behalf of their presentation.
A message from Maureen and a copy of the PowerPoint presentation was sent out to members following the meeting.
