Each year, Interact clubs are encouraged to complete at least two service projects—one that benefits the school or community, and one that promotes international understanding and peace. This year, CV Interact Club is supporting VCAYA http://www.vcaya.org/
VCAYA has drilled 5 clean water wells in rural villages of Uganda.
Clean water not only reduces disability and death, but it reduces gender based violence, increases the time to tend to agriculture for improved nutrition, increases the time that children can attend school, and increases the time that parents can spend with their children.
VCAYA initiatives also provide funding for teacher training, supplies like sewing machines and eyeglasses, and advocates for children with disabilities.
CV Interact will be collecting used eyeglasses during the month of May and then donate them to VCAYA.
Thank you for supporting our project!
