Our team returned to Windsor recently having spent 2 - 4 fruitful weeks in the Jirapa District, Upper West Region of Ghana. Our team was smaller this year, but it was a successful and rewarding trip nevertheless.  Here’s what has been accomplished thus far, and what projects are still ongoing, thanks to the many generous donations from all of you:
In total, we received $90,000+ Canadian in donations and grants (not including funds raised for the Centennial Project mentioned above), with our partners in Ghana being the Rotary Club of Wa, designated local agents, and Health and Water/Sanitation Dept. in Jirapa. Those partners look after getting competitive prices, and provide ongoing monitoring of the projects.
Our team and our Rotary Club are extremely grateful for the wonderful generosity of so many donors, like yourself, who make it possible to improve the lives of those who live in Jirapa District – population of about 105,000, mainly in rural villages, with only three (3) doctors, high incidence of MALARIA, acute shortage of water, and many JK/SK students with no classrooms.
Our small team travelled to Ghana at our own expense, to carry out the projects of our club’s World Community Service Committee, and oversaw the expenditure of funds raised by so many dedicated and wonderful supporters. If you have any questions, please contact me by email ( or by cell (519-973-4052).
Many thanks, keep well and God Bless,
