Learners from New Hope School, South Africa equip themselves with RI Grant

We are pleased to inform you that eight (8) Learners from the New Hope School (NHS) in Pretoria, South Africa completed courses in refrigerating and air conditioning, electrical and arc welding at the Ekurhuleni Artisans and Skills Training Centre. They were awarded their certificates on the September 14, 2019 after the successful completion of the three-month courses.

The Learners will forever be grateful to Rotary for the funding received from the Rotary International Grant. Two of the Learners have already secured part time work, because of these newly required skills!

Thanks go out to all the members who tirelessly fund-raised, the District 5370 for their matching grant, to the clubs who donated; Drayton Valley, Nisku Leduc, Sherwood Park, South Edmonton, St. Albert and Stony Plain and the international public who donated online at GoFundMe for making the RI Grant a reality. “This is the beginning of great results of the projects funded with the Grant!, says Ys Visser, Rotary Club of Pretoria: Projects”
