Great News

We have our first Associate Member. Dominic Taddei is from Hawick, but he chose to join our eClub as he is travelling a lot. And, boy, is he travelling! Dominic has been saving up for the past couple of years, sold his car and other possessions and is now in Ethiopia on the start of a two year volunteering journey. Rotary will be providing Dominic with a network of contacts as he continues his journey to Nairobi, Kenya and Ghana over the coming months. And, in turn, he is providing our club with international projects and Rotary networking of our own.

Rotary Club of Brynmawr supplied him with two family sized LifeStraws to take with him and have now supplied our club with 60 packs to send out as and where Dominic finds the need. A further 40 are being sent out by our incoming President Nii Boi-Dsane to his homeland of Ghana.

Dominic’s first concern was at the school in Jinka in Ethiopia, where he has been helping teach English. In spite of being a “private” school there was a desperate need for pens and pencils. We have already sent a small supply of pens with more on the way and now the Rotary Club of Workington is supplying us with around 3,000 pencils, some of which will go out to Jinka. The remainder, like the LifeStraws, will be sent out to wherever Dominic identifies a need.

Watch out for regular reports on Dominic’s activities on our Facebook and web site
