East Cooper Breakfast, North Charleston-Breakfast, and Lake Murray-Irmo Clubs are participating in Global Grant 1523745 for Early Childhood Development Training with Westville Club, South Africa, District 9370.  The Clubs submitted their respective funds in March 2015 to assist The Westville Club in working with a local organization, Feed the Babies.

Feed the Babies works with approximately 300 crèches throughout the province of KwaZulu Natal (about 50% of Rotary D9370) extending from Ezingolweni in the south to Mbazwana and Pongola in the north and inland to Emnambithi.  They currently feed approximately 9000 children daily in these crèches.

 

 

The Grant is focusing to:
·        Provide training in hygiene and appropriate precautions when administrating first aid along with basic first aid kits.
·        Train the caregivers in basic Early Childhood Development
·        Provide wall charts
·        Provide training on the making of educational toys and provide a “starter” kit for caregivers to make toys.
