You or your club can support a Fair Trade Community Development Project at the Tekera Resource Centre in Uganda by sponsoring some of the registration kits, or “swag bags”, at the conference.
There are 450 swag bags on order, sewn by people of all ages in Uganda. We are saving shipping charges because students from our communities already going to Uganda will bring the bags back.
A Rotary label will be sewn on the bags, which come in many bright colours and designs and have proven to be really useful. The cost for each bag (all in $US) is $5.00. Your club could join others to sponsor a number of the bags. Clubs which have agreed so far to sponsor these bags for this excellent interational service cause are: Tsawwassen; Squamish; Whistler; Whistler Millennium; Pemberton.
Please ask your club executive, or consider yourself, to become a sponsor of 25 bags in $US for $125, 50 for $250, 100 for $500, or 150 bags for $750.
