We were please to have as our guests Impact Zambia leaders Florence and Daniel Mayapi who are visiting from Itezhi-tezhi, Zambia. They  provided an update on the progress being made on a project in their community that has been supported by the club for several years.  The project supports community development intiatives to break the cycle of poverty through education and vocational training.  The life-changing vocational Training Centre in Itezhi-tezhi grew up out of a sewing club, which has provided sewing and business training to women in partnership with Rotary.  The need for skills and leadership development, resulted in the construction of a multi-purpose training centre, which offers classes in leadership training as well as employable skills like sewing, agriculture, woodworking, building dams, and mechanical repair. The project is changing lives.
