Ebola

I give below a brief description of Warwick Rotary Club's plans: -

There have been cultural links between Warwickshire and Bo for the last four years, including teacher exchanges, and school project support from Leamington and Warwick Rotarians, led by a Leamington based charity which promotes educational and vocational links.  The link between Warwick and Bo is therefore established.

World Polio Day: 24 October 2014

World Polio Day is quickly approaching on October 24th. This is a chance for Rotarians, clubs, and districts across the world to come together to fight polio. There are many ways you could mark the day. Dedicate your club meeting to focus on Rotary’s work to end polio that week. Community fundraisers on/around World Polio Day are great a way to raise awareness of our cause in the general public.  You could take the opportunity to remind government officials to support the global commitment to a polio free world- Rotary’s top priority. On World Polio Day, wear your End Polio Now pin and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

Bwengu Projects - Working in Africa

Bwengu Projects is a small NGO run by Sue & Tony Melia.

Each year we work in north Malawi, completing various building projects of local village schools, churches and medical centers and generally supporting the community. Part of our work is in the provision of self managing food projects providing for orphans and other children.

                                          Our 10th year - Working In Africa

We have now booked our flights to Africa, we fly out 14th Sept. This will be our shortest stay in the 10 years we have been travelling to Malawi, staying for just 1 month. Sue will carry out an evaluation of the various additional education projects that have taken place in 2014.  The effect of the introduction of solar lighting within 3 classrooms has changed the thinking of many within the villages. The best evidence of this can be shown in the letter we received from the Head Teacher of Luzi School for June school reports.

Our plan is to offer these same education projects to other secondary school communities in 2014/15.   Volunteers wishing to work in Africa, we now have the organisational structure in place if any one wishes to travel out to Malawi. There are a number of interesting projects available.

We also are looking for any spare or discarded mobile phones and lap top computers these we will take with us in September when we travel out to Malawi.
