Tuesday, February 23rd marked the official handover of the Ntsika Sanitation Project! In an update from Rotarian Gavin Keaton, he noted:
 
"The occasion was reminder of the extraordinary mixtures that make up Grahamstown.  Just outside the School were long queues of people collecting water from the School’s borehole (it has a public tap) because our town has been without water for more than 4 days.  Unlike the weather in Texas, the cause for our plight is poor local governance that allowed the main water pump to break down without a backup in place.  One of the goals of the project was to make Ntsika self-sufficient in times like these.  We installed 40 000 litres of water tanks that feed into the school’s mains via a pump.  In addition, they have access to the water from the borehole that was drilled on their grounds in 2019 by an organisation called Gift of the Givers."
Stuart Palmer of the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole was selected to receive the 2020-21 Service Above Self Award by the Rotary International Board of Directors. This award is considered Rotary International’s highest honor to bestow on a Rotarian and is only awarded to 150 recipients per year worldwide. This award recognizes Rotarians who demonstrate Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, by volunteering their time and talents to help others.
 
Stuart has been a Rotarian for over 34 years, serving as District Governor for Rotary District 5440 in 2008-2009. He has worked on many local and international projects, including two medical clinics in Brigui, Sao Paulo, Brazil; water projects in three schools in Grahamstown, South Africa; a van for cancer detection in Tlaxcala, Mexico; and two clean water projects at the Center of the Secret of Peace in Rwanda.
