News From Our Twin Club in Knysna, South Africa
Are you curious about about our Twin Club in Knysna, South Africa?
RCK's Past President Mike Shires lives in Knysna and his wife, Sandy, operates a Rotary sponsored breakfast feeding program for township residents who are out looking for day work each morning. If those looking for work have a meal in the early morning, they will be able to work better. Our club has partnered with the Knysna Rotary Club for over eight years and helped renovate several pre-school facilities and we have collaborated on several matching grants to benefit young township children. RCK Board member Allen Pannell and his children traveled to Knysna a few years ago and while there they painted a pre-school, which is called a creche in South Africa. We have sent several teams of Interact students to Knysna and Stanford, SA to help and learn about South Africa.
