Stockholm International Rotary Club has been supporting The Phyllis Wambui Children’s home in Kenya for the last 3 years. Our club has raised funds and supported the home in a number of different ways over that time. For example in Rotary Year 2008-2009 we worked on a project with the Nakuru RC in Kenya to raise funds to equip a newly built dining room/kitchen and a boys dormitory. We have also worked with DHL to collect and ship children’s clothes and shoes to the home. More recently, as a short-term measure, we collected and sent additional funds to the home to help pay their food bills which have gone up significantly following a recent drought there.
We work closely with the home to identify new needs and projects in which we feel we can make a contribution towards the well-being of the home and the children that live and get educated there. We would welcome the involvement of other Rotary clubs in supporting the home so please get in contact with our President if you would like to find out more.
