Last Friday, The Rotaract Clubs of St. Andrew and Liguanea Plains stopped at nothing in order to hand over their donation of sanitary napkins and new undies to Tarrant High School. The Holborn Spartans also made a generous contribution to assist with their donation. The students will receive these items upon their return to school.

Last week was World Rotaract Week. Every year, Rotaractors and Rotarians around the world celebrate World Rotaract Week with various activities during the week of 13 March to commemorate the founding of the first club in 1968. It was a time for celebrating the success and importance of the Rotaract programme.
Last Thursday, March 14th, the Rotaract Club of St. Andrew donated Professional Wear to Dress for Success Jamaica as a part of their World Rotaract Week celebration.
Dress for Success Jamaica is also a non-profit organization. They empower women by providing them with work attire, training and support so that they can achieve economic independence.
Kudos to both organizations on the charitable work they continue to do to help build a better Jamaica. For more information or to become a part of these organizations, please see their information below.
