The Foundation has teamed up with The Rotary Club of Grand Bend and their Global Literacy Project whereby school materials which no longer meet the Ontario Curriculum standards are shipped to other parts of the world where children have almost no learning aids.
The picture above shows desks from our district in use at a school in Middleburg, South Africa.
While school supplies and books remain the focus, shelving, musical instruments, soccer supplies and medical devices are welcome for future shipments. The Rotary Club of Grand Bend have been involved in the loading of 18 containers to date. Shipping costs, averaging $5000 per container, are paid for by The Rotary Club of Grand Bend and the generosity of other donors. Tax receipts are available for donations to the project through the Foundation.
