MAYWOOD ROTARY KENYA PROJECT
Since 2003 The Maywood Rotary Club has supported several schools in Kenya and for the past ten years we have traveled to and supported the Nkineji Primary School in the Masai Mara, building classrooms and teacher housing, providing food and clean water for the students and raising money for scholarships for High School. Last year we reached our goal of helping the school to achieve self sufficiency.
I am sad to report that last night, February 6th, the girls dorm housing 94 students burned down. Fortunately, no one was injured and the girls are safe.
However they lost what little they had including school uniforms, books and necessities.
The Maywood Rotary Club is starting an emergency fund to replace these items as well as provide temporary housing and mattresses for the students. Any money not used for their immediate care will go towards repairing the dorm.
You can donate by clicking on the Donate Now button below or by sending a check to the Maywood Rotary Club PO Box 933 Maywood, NJ 07607 indicating Kenya Project.

Let’s Feed Maywood is a Maywood Rotary Club program helping put food on the table of individuals and families affected by the health and humanitarian crisis.
Our goal is to meet the food needs of Maywoodians with compassion and integrity.
We believe every person has a right to adequate food.
We are asking for your help in making another needed program a success.
For a minimum donation of $20, you can help feed a person or family in need. Maywood Rotary Club will use the profits from your donation to provide food and food store gift cards to Maywoodians in need.
To thank you for your donation, we will be providing you with a reusable tote bag. Please send us an email with your address so that we may drop off the tote bags once they arrive. Your donation (minus the cost of the bag - $2.50) is tax deductible.
If you know an individual or family who needs help putting food on the table at this time, please send us an email. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
