Our Rotary club’s women’s welfare society recently went to a tribal settlement in Katkar Wadi, where we visited 60 households and a 35-student school for kindergarten through grade four, handing out notebooks, writing materials, clothing, and utensils. Many of the women in the settlement have never been to school, and it is a rare occasion when they even travel out of their community. Our youth wing conducted games for the children, also engaging our members in the fun.
We were also able to plant trees in the community and distribute snacks and treats. The team left with the determination to adopt the settlement and make a significant difference for years to come.
All together we can serve the community better.
A proud to be a Rotarian.
Congratulations on a wonderful project. I am sure that the village will benefit greatly from your interest. One thing is important … is the drinking water source safe??? Cheers, DLR
Congratulations! Another thing is very important: involve the local community (capacity building, ownership) and if possible continue your support for some years.
My Rotary Club Munich International very generously supports the education department of the Barefoot College, Tilonia/Rajasthan, since years with access to primary education for kids from migrating families and Untouchables and every year we see the progress in the kids, specially the girls.
