District Grant supports Cilongo Foundation

Northfield Rotary Club - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 8:25pm

Northfield Rotary Club secured a District Grant to help Cilongo Foundation ship donated shoes, socks, clothes and backpacks to schools in Democratic Republic of Congo.  After seeing a Star Tribune story on their dilemma, the club contacted Books For Africa to be a partner. Together, we funded a shipping container that 1) got the shoes and goods to Africa, and 2) enabled Books For Africa to ship more books than they otherwise would. Northfield Rotary committed $2,000; Woodbury Rotary contributed $500; and the District matched that with a $2,500 grant.

Cilongo Foundation leader Albert Nyembwe spoke to Northfield Rotary Club on March 5 about the project, and shared photos.
