A brief history of our connection with Ndandini
Terry and Jan Umbach, Rotarians, visited the village in 2008, and discovered a desperate need for water. We were asked to help financially with the digging of a well. Terry and Jan’s commitment never faltered, and one project followed another, always with the support and enthusiasm of the village.
Our main efforts are now scholarships for the children. Every year we give out little “knapsacks” in October asking you to collect your loose change. These knapsacks are then collected around St. Nicholas feast day (Dec 6). Tax receipts are given. In past years we have provided several scholarships, and some young people are even managing to go on to university. This is a significant life changer.
