Partnerships with Calgary Rotary Clubs

Together with the Rotary Clubs of Calgary Canada, Kyotera and Masaka, They have implemented the TRACC project whereby they assisted over 800 children in schools, vocational skills up to University levels and Tertiary Institutions.These children were taken back to school and provided them with some basic needs of life.

The Rotary Club is very active in the community. Because of time constraints, we are not able to show you all of them. The club also runs an Adopt-A-Village program, funds operations for children whose family cannot afford them and a number of school support programs.
