Umina Rotary may fund Somoan college projects
A group of Umina Beach Rotarians have returned from Samoa to present their findings on Rotary outreach initiatives at the Papauta Girls College.
The college provides education to girls aged 10-13 who cannot access schooling in their local area.
The Umina Rotarians visited the college to catalogue projects they could potentially fund.
"After touring the college, the group earmarked some projects the club could help with and put forward their recommendations to the board," the club was told.
There were five recommendations in total which included purchasing new guttering and a water tank to stop rainwater from entering the college's staff room; cleaning and painting the shower block; arranging for new showerheads; and buying five new tables and 40 chairs.
The club is currently costing the projects and exploring the viability of each recommendation with the Rotary Club of Apia.
