Outreach Helps Hospice
April 17, 2017

Rotary Tygerberg used their R15000 Rotary Claremont Outreach funds for 2016/17 to support the Morningstar Reading Centre in Durbanville. 8 computers were installed to add much value to the literacy programme.

The Centre caters for between 20 and 30 learners twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at times also on a Wednesday (when the number of volunteer teachers allows). The computers are in use on Tuesdays, as an addition to the normal art classes. The operating system is the Edubuntu package.

The Rotary Club of Tygerberg has thanked the Rotary Club of Claremont warmly, for enabling their club to furnish the Reading Centre with these computers, which will make a tremendous difference in the lives of the children who attend.

"Past President Peter Trebble joined Rotary Claremont in late 2007. Peter has served as Club Secretary, President Elect and as Club President 2011/12. Peter has also served on the District 9350 Public Relations Committee for 5 years. Peter’s theme for Rotary Claremont for 2011/12 was ‘Fun with a Purpose’ emphasizing that if Rotarians have fun it enables them to give more of themselves in “service above self”. Peter’s particular Rotary vision is to encourage Rotary membership to grow world-wide. The dream and task is for enthusiastic young Rotarians to join our organisation and to be mentored by much respected senior Rotarians. Currently, Peter’s drive for Rotary Claremont is to procure Corporate Partnership Funding and he has successfully facilitated the major partnership that has been struck between the Lewis Group and Rotary Claremont for additional funding to strengthen the Club’s flagship “Injongo” Project. The pilot of this major Educare Project was implemented as part of the current Rotary Claremont 3/5 Year Strategic Plan which was launched during Peter’s year as Club President 2011/12. Peter’s other focus is to facilitate Rotary Claremont’s Outreach Program for smaller District 9350 clubs. During 2013/14 ten clubs were involved in meaningful projects, after having received funding directly from Rotary Claremont. Peter’s personal Community Service Projects have centred around assistance to Safe Havens and Children’s Homes for abused and abandoned infants and little ones."
