Support for African Outreach 2019     

International Committee Assistant Director Ken introduced Colleen Smith, whose African Outreach project in Zimbabwe has long been a recipient of the club's international service support. Meg Godwin, widow of Past President Ken Godwin, introduced our club to African Outreach many years ago and it was lovely to have Meg along to share the evening. Colleen gave us an update on what has been happening with the project since her last visit. Ken presented Colleen with this year's donation to the project, which targets aid for orphans, refugees and the elderly. 


Update from Ndola- March 2018     

RC Karrinyup's major International Project involves supporting a school for at risk children in Ndola, Zambia. Phase 1 of the project, completed in 2016, provided a reliable supply of fresh water. On a recent private visit to Zambia, our member Nchima scheduled a visit to the school. The visit was aimed at continuing to build on our relationship with Arising Life Ministries, to check on current state of affairs and review RC Karrinyup funded projects. He spent a whole day with Joyce Chimbila the Director of ALMS, her staff and the lovely children at ALMS. 


ALMS Research Trip 2017 - Final Report     

In June 2017, a team of researchers, funded by the RC Karrinyup, conducted a field research assessment of Arising Life Ministries (ALMS) school. The purpose of the trip was to complete an assessment of required needs for the development of the design of the new ALMS school, to build relationships with key stakeholders, to understand the cultural and contextual nuances of working in Zambia, and to develop a strategy for moving forward with the above.  


24 October Focus on World Polio Day     

24th October is marked globally as World Polio Day, established by Rotary International. Rotary is dedicated to the eradication of this potentially fatal infectious disease for which there is no cure but which can be prevented through immunization. There are only three countries that have never stopped transmission of the wild poliovirus. We are so close to achieving the goal of a polio free world. On 24th October, RC Karrinyup will make a significant contribution to the polio eradication.


Update from Ndola - June 2017     

Significant progress has been made following Phase 1 of the RC Karrinyup major International Service project in Ndola, Zambia. After the installation of a water bore and storage tank, which provides fresh water to the site of the new orphanage being developed by ALMS, we moved into the site design phase of the project. The club recently sent a Pre-Vocational Training Team (VTT) to Ndola to scope the site plan. Team member Kate has reported back to the club about the visit.


Zambia Water Project     

The Zambia Water Project involved scoping and drilling a bore to sufficient depth and installation of a pump and water tank.  This has now provided clean drinking water for the school of some eighty orphaned and vulnerable children under the support of Arising Life Ministries in Ndola, Zambia as well as to the community of the Kaloko area.

As always, a ShelterBox Response Team is on the ground and the first ShelterBox aid is being distributed. RC Karrinyup has long been a generous supporter of Shelterbox.
