District Membership Team Hits the Ground Running
 
The District Membership Team of Menno de Wet and David Holtzhausen continued the District Membership Drive with the launch of the first of six Membership Workshops which took place on the 27 May 2017 at the WPCC in Rondebosch, Cape Town. It is planned that the workshops will take place at convenient locations in the District, so look out for the next notification from the Membership Team. Part of the plan is to provide Clubs with tools to assist them in growing their Membership. The first of which is a manual "Double Your Membership in 6 Months : 10 Lessons from a Rotary Club Pilot" by Rotarian Quentin Wodon, which can be down-loaded from this web-site in the Home Page Download Files block on the left.

School Libraries Score with a Global Grant

Global Grant #1527314 was recently awarded by The Rotary Foundation to the The Rotary Club of Waterfront for their School Libraries Development Project.
 
The process for securing the above Global Grant (GG) started in 2014. During 2015 this complex process continued requiring considerable work from five RC Waterfront Members. We battled to garner sufficient support from Rotary Clubs, companies and individuals to cover the minimum seed fund of US$ 15 000, and to gather the available District Designated Funds (DDF) contributions.

ROTARY CLUB OF NEWLANDS ADDRESSES EMERGENCY RESPONSE VEHICLE CRISIS

 

The shortage of emergency response vehicles is a serious problem being faced in the Western Cape (and in fact, the rest of the country). This lack of vehicles often leads to emergency services taking up to 40 minutes to arrive at disaster scenes, especially in more remote areas. It goes without saying that the vital lost time can literally mean the difference between life and death.

 

Due to budget constraints, the situation doesn’t show any signs of improving - either from a provincial or municipal perspective. However, a fund-raising project recently initiated by the Rotary Club Newlands aims to supply an additional, much-needed vehicle to be operated by the Disaster Volunteer Group, EVS. The fully-kitted, multi-purpose vehicle will provide services to residents in the Deep South, from Claremont to Cape Point, including Masiphumelele, Ocean View and Redhill.
