Malayaka Project

Thanks to our speaker yesterday, Brett Wright from the Ludlow VT Rotary Club.  Mr. Wright presented us with his club’s initiative to help the Malayaka House Orphanage in Uganda build a solar panel electrical system for the orphanage which houses more than 30 Ugandan children and their “Aunties”.  The orphanage suffers greatly from an operational perspective as well as significant safety concerns, from the lack of consistent electrical power.  The Ludlow Club is looking to raise $10,000 towards the project from other clubs in the district, including Newport.  Mr. Wright was accompanied by Amy, who works to support the Malayaka House through purchasing local Ugandan coffee beans and roasting and selling them locally here in New England.   Overall, it was a great presentation and here is all the websites for additional information.
