The Ilitha Creche is in full swing! With 2 new classrooms completed in April, the students have a wonderful place to learn and laugh. Thank you to our generous donors: South Korean Rotary Clubs D3630, South Africa District 9350, Tasha and David Rijke-Epstein, JDI Teach to Fish, District 6900 (Peach Tree City, USA), Sea Point Rotary and many others

The children are truly benefiting from the Souns project!

The Blue Train continues to delight kids and the community. A special thanks to Faircape Construction, whose generosity we celebrated at the cycle track launch on October 26. A message from Alderman JP Smith, our Honorary Rotarian:

“I think that is was commendable that a local developer, Faircape, was willing to contribute to the upgrade and we hope that other developers will make the same effort. …they are all involved in the creation of communities and achieving quality living spaces which means upgrading the public spaces adjacent to the developments that they are doing.”
