District Governor Ann Wright Visits Waterfront Rotary Projects

Piet Postema and Captain Mymoena took DG Ann on various site visits – first to Salesians where she saw the YES I CAN DO IT programme in action, the Stitch Ahead programme and the SMART WORK CENTRE. We then visited the Chapel Street Primary School new library and grade R classroom and of course the upgraded play area. We then visited Christine Revell Children’s Home and learnt from our Social Worker Cindy-Lee and our Grade R teacher Mathilda of their challenges with compromised children placed in our care. Our General Manager Anneline explained the challenges we experience with fund raising.
