CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISING IDEA

SUCESS IN KENYA

 

 

2 out of 3 Clubs in D1100 have already pledged support for DG Martin's project to work with schools to reduce charcoaling through the manufacture of fire briquettes from waste material. Thank you.

Charcoaling is in so many ways the scourge of Africa with whole tracts of rural land becoming virtual deserts instead of fertile land. This causes the migration of rural communities to urban centres where paraffin and electricity are unaffordable and the consequential demand for charcoal keeps rising.

It is looking like we are on track to have 50 machines installed serving most of the targeted schools. Can your Club find the £175 for a machine to help us make this all the schools?

Look on the District website or contact Bob Gower to find out more and get involved.
