Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club Learns About Sierra Leone Solar and Genital Mutilation Projects

Sierra Leone Project Teaneck Rotary President Katharine Frost explained some of the problems that her club is attacking in Sierra Leone. A pet project of hers, her club has united with the Rotary Club of Freetown, Sierra Leone to help try and solve these situations. It started with the war that lasted from 1991 to the year 2002. It played a devastating role upon the infrastructure of Sierra Leone including, but not limited to: government buildings, electric power plants and many schools.


The Freetown Secondary School for Girls was spared from complete destruction but rendered the boarding school section useless due to lack of vital electricity needed for lighting and refrigeration. The effort to obtain solar panel lighting was co-endorsed by the two Rotary Clubs, thousands of miles apart. Such is the spirit of Rotary and Rotarians. For this, they need to raise $30,000.00 (US) to be able to bring the boarding school back up to operation without having to use candles at night nor having to worry about food storage.

Another problem that surfaced is that the school was a haven from the Female Genital Mutilation practiced by secret societies in the various villages. This ancient rite is practiced on a daily basis and has caused some girls to bleed to death, makes them more vulnerable to infection and preys upon them in marriage. The school is dedicated to educating their students about this horrific problem and is trying to stem it!

To help them accomplish their goals, access www.TeaneckRotary.com and learn how you can contribute to this worthy cause. a check can be made out to Rotary Club of Teaneck, PO Box 222, Teaneck, NJ 07666. Katharine Frost is available to speak to your organization Pugdom@Verizon.net
