In 2016 one of the members of the Rotary Club of Adelaide Parks, Lesley, started a project to assist a small village school in Vanuatu. Since then the Club has joined the project and with the ongoing support of other members and friends Lesley is preparing for her next visit at the end of March.
Some of the Children that are helped
Part of the trip will entail gathering information about the school's proposed new cyclone-safe hall and how the Club can assist. On this visit Lesley will also be helping in the classroom in the mornings and helping the mothers to make shorts and skirts in the afternoons for the children's school uniform.
The hard at work Making uniforms and the finished products
To complete the school uniform, Lesley is taking 190 orange t-shirts, along with a range of educational materials, toothbrushes and toothpaste, all of which have been donated or bought with the proceeds of various fund-raising activities throughout the year.
The Huge stack of T Shirts and Supplies
Together with Ruth Carlot, the driving force behind the Sama Sama Rainbow School, the project is helping one of the many communities in Vanuatu that need support.
A fond farewell, until next time
