GLIMPSES II : Feedback from Overseas Partners
Feedback - Rotary Club of Augsburg - Rennaissancestadt Germany, District 1841 President Thomas Jakob, 2018/19
• Education is the basis to secure a livelihood in our ever faster changing world. Since many years, the Rotary Club of Augsburg-Rennaissancestadt supports the establishment of libraries (“Lese-Inseln”) in elementary schools in our home community, the city of Augsburg. For this reason, we are very happy to jointhe Rotary Club of Kaufbeuren-Ostallgäu in their support of RC Calcutta’s project to build a bridge-school in Howrah South Point.

• We found the concept of the school,to attract children from underprivileged families by offering free meals in combination with the attendance of the school, immediately convincing, since at the same time, it reduces the burden on the families.

• We wish our friends from the Rotary Club of Calcutta every success with this important project
Feedback - Rotary Club of Kaufbeuren-Ostallgäu, Germany District 1841, President Christoph Ebert, 2018/19

Our Club RC Kaufbeuren-Ostallgäu is really excited to be part of the project funding a bridge school at Howrah South Point through a GlobalGrant initiated by our friends from RC Calcutta.

It has always been our goal to support children wherever possible. The idea of the bridge schools is to attract children from the poorest families, and give them a chance to experience that they, too, can learn something, and that schools are not only for the rich. In this way, the children can be prepared to attend normal schools after a few years. This opens access to education for them, and provides a chance for the children to escape poverty and participate in and contribute to the community they live in to the fullest extent. Education has always been important for children to enable them to discover and use their abilities. In our time, this is becoming increasingly important.

The Rotary Club of Calcutta is initiating this project as part of a larger effeort to the improve the future of underpriviledged children in celebration of the 100 anniversary of RC Calcutta's charter. We believe this is a very worthy cause and the Rotary Club of Kaufbeuren-Ostallgäu in Germany is proud to be able to support it.

Congratulations to our friends of the Rotary Club of Calcutta for their centennial anniversary, and all the best for the next hundred years!

Feedback - Six Scottish Clubs led by Monifieth and District and Battersea Park London


• Working under the inspiring and energetic leadership of Saumen Ray and his fellow Rotarians in the Calcutta Club, seven Rotary Clubs in the United Kingdom - six in Scotland and one in England - have worked in partnership to secure the successful completion of two phases of WASH projects, with a third now in progress.  These are providing potable water and toilets, together with education in their use, for a group of villages located in rural areas of West Bengal and Jharkhand states outside the metropolitan area of Kolkata. 

• Thanks, in part, to major global grants from the Rotary Foundation World Fund and Districts 3291 and 1010, contributions from the Rotary Clubs of Arbroath, Battersea Park, Broughty Ferry, Claverhouse, Dundee, Inverness Culloden and Monifieth & District have been multiplied over five times to create project budgets  of circa US $50,000 for each of the 3 phases.

• The United Kingdom Clubs have stood shoulder to shoulder with our friends in Kolkata in our joint determination to secure the continued success of these worthwhile WASH projects in order to secure basic water, and sanitation and hygiene for the villagers.  The planned provisions have been completed on time, to specification, and within budget using local labour and expertise.  Over 3000 people including many children will have benefitted directly; and there will be numerous indirect benefits, including the reduction of water borne disease, improvements in agricultural production, and increased educational attainment.

• These WASH projects are an excellent example of Rotarians working in international partnership; and the good practice displayed in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation are worthy of consideration by other Clubs seeking out projects worthy of their support.

• “These projects are a sustainable permanent enhancement to the villagers way of life”.
