Latest News & Upcoming Projects

Last week we had Scott Haugh and Bud Volinsky speak to our club about Beacon Farms Sober Living Foundation. The club decided to donate funds raised during the meeting as well as generously matched on the spot by a bunch of Rotarians resulting in a donation of over $2,000

About Beacon Farms: Beacon Farms is a newly organized non-profit focused on the next step in the rehabilitation of the residents assigned from The Bridge Foundation or other transitional residential environments in Grand Cayman.

Beacon Farms’ primary purpose is to assist in providing a stable, structured and supportive environment which is conducive to the decisions of living a sober life, free of drugs and alcohol. Beacon Farms will provide a democratic environment that will enhance personal growth, job training and a sustainable non-profit business model.

Owen Roberts International Airport will soon feature a breast-feeding pod that will allow nursing moms to breast-feed in private.

The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman has purchased a Mamava privacy suite to allow nursing mothers to breast-feed in private at the Owen Roberts International Airport.

The Mamava suite is a self-contained, mobile pod with comfortable benches, a fold-down table, an electrical outlet for plugging in a breast pump, and a door that can be locked for privacy. The pod is meant for individual use, but can fit more than one person, as well as mothers with babies and other children in tow.

Rotary Club member Chris Bailey said the pod will be installed at the airport departure lounge once construction there is finalized.

The Rotary Club made the announcement in conjunction with World Breast-feeding Week.

“World Breast-feeding Week is from Aug. 1-7, and we could not think of a better way to celebrate this than by announcing the support this suite will give to mothers,” the organization stated. 

The Rotary Club also said it is looking for sponsors to keep the Mamava pod in good condition over the coming years.

The Rotary Clubs of the Cayman Islands are partnering with the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park to develop the park’s Children’s Education Centre.

At a presentation ceremony at Rotary Central Cayman in Centennial Park in George Town on Saturday, June 30, the three local Rotary Clubs jointly committed $150,000 to help construct the facility.

Planning approval has been secured for the Education Centre, which is being designed pro-bono by John Doak Architecture.

The Rotary Children’s Centre will feature a classroom surrounded by endemic flora, a grand gazebo entrance, an expansive lawn area and other interactive elements that “will create indelible memories, and positive stimulation for the many children that will be passing through,” according to a press release from the Botanic Park.
