The Zuri project Uganda

Keith McDavid – Rotary Club of Knowle and Dorridge

You may recall we arranged to get some pencils for the above charity from Workington Rotary Club which relations of Tom collected from Whitehaven and Tom collected from them and brought the pencils to Knowle. Well the pencils have now arrived in Uganda free of any transport costs, as they were included in a container that included a generator that was being donated by a local company that supports the Zuri Project. So all in all this was a win, win situation for everybody.

Nepal Press Release

Villagers celebrating the inauguration of their new Community Centre.jpg

In April 2015, an earthquake of 7.6 on the Richter scale struck the historic district of Gorkha in Nepal, northwest of Kathmandu. Over 9,000 lives were lost and estimated 8 million people, almost one-third of the population, have been impacted by the earthquake.

Members of the Rotary Club of North Worcestershire, together with the  Rotary Club of Damauli in Nepal, decided the best way to provide support was to help fund the reconstruction of the devastated Community Centre in the rural area of Dharmpani, Tanahun West Nepal; the epicentre of the earthquake.
