After a request from Early Inspiration, the Rotary Club of Algoa Bay donated Wonderboxes to the project. Wonderbox are heat retention cookers which provides an low-energy solution to cooking. This can be especially useful when preparing traditionally long-cooking food such as beans and pulses. The Wonderboxes were acquired by the club at the Rotary Family Health days.
Wonderboxes hand over
The Rotary Club, already a supporter of the Early Inspiration Project, handed over the five Wonderboxes last week. Early Inspiration is an organization with a vision to see children’s lives in South Africa changed. A vision to see the children of today developed into ambitious, confident, knowledgeable, dynamic leaders through teacher training and home visit and parent programmes in underprivileged communities.
This week the Rotary Club of Algoa Bay received a thank you letter from the Heatherbank Pre-Primary School. We contributed to their purchase of stationery for for 2016. Below are some pictures sent to us and their ‘thank yous’.
“Thank you for your very generous donation of stationery to us today. I was unpacking it after the meeting, and am very appreciative”.
“The Grade 3’s are very excited that they will be getting their own packs of koki pens next year and won’t have to share! “
“Thank you, for allowing me to bring such joy to the learners this year. The programme has been such a success that the school is continuing with it in 2017”
One of the club’s recent projects was the Thand’usana Baby Haven. Situated at a Methodist church in Newton Park, the Baby Haven was in desperate need of help to redo their flooring. The Rotary Club of Algoa Bay donated R10 000 to Thand’usana with which they had some of their floor areas beautifully sanded and varnished, and others carpeted. They used the remaining funds (as well as donations from other companies) to purchase a few appliances and make some general repairs to the house. Overall, the place is looking fabulous and new!
Thank you for our new floors 🙂
Quality testing the carpets – yep, they’re great!
Thanks Algoa Bay Rotary Club for our new floors.
