On August 3, President Kim read an amazing letter from Molly Mansker, the founder and Director of the Poulsbo Chapter of Days for Girls, thanking Silverdale Rotary for the recent Duck Bucks grant of $1,500, which will help keep girls in school in Africa.  See the text of the letter at the end of this article.
Molly is shown above in June 2017 near Johannesburg, South Africa with some of the 50 girls who received training and feminine hygiene kits provided by the Poulsbo Chapter of Days for Girls.  Here is Molly's description of the photo of this life changing event:

"After 18 months of working on kits, here is the big payoff! We distributed over 50 kits at two sites around Munsieville, approximately 40 minutes outside Johannesburg. These young ladies were smart, eager recipients of the health training. They beamed when they got their kits. They cheered long and hard for all the unseen seamstresses and other volunteers. Thank you for the love and care you put into these kits. They are beautiful and the girls were proud to own them."
 
In 2016, Silverdale Rotary funded a new serger for the Poulsbo Chapter with Duck Bucks, also with proceeds from the 2016 Silverdale Rotary Duck Race.  Silverdale Rotarians are also involved in Chapter efforts.
