The ANNUAL PROJECTS are those projects that may take nine months of planning, but take place over a few days, roughly the same time every year.
One-to-One has been running for many years. It is an occasion organised by a number of service clubs (including local Rotary and Interact Clubs), that is generally well supported by the City of Cape Town and is focussed on creating a super-fun day out for disabled people in the peninsula.
Rotary Family Health Days is a relatively recent addition to the annual calendar. The project is a collaboration between various local Rotary Clubs.
