Dear Johanna and the Rotary Club of Beecroft
As we all celebrate National Volunteer Week mostly from our home offices, Taldumande Youth Services would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all our volunteers who have helped us support over 600 vulnerable children and young people in our care from all across Sydney, over the past year.
Whether you’ve participated in a corporate backyard blitz, done regular gardening at any of our properties, designed our annual report, raised funds to help us maintain our properties and support our programs, volunteered at a fundraising event or at the young people’s Christmas party, organised donations for our young people or helped us at head office in research or administrative roles, each and everyone of you are so important to us.
Without our volunteers, the success of the provision of our services would be so much harder to achieve. You truly are Changing Communities and Changing Lives and again this year we thank you for generously performing roles that would be extremely costly to our not-for-profit organisation.
We wish to thank our local community, without our dedicated locals, these projects would not be made possible for the Rotary Club of Beecroft to get involved with!
We are helping to empower youth to independence and stability....help us help the homeless kids of Sydney!
Great news is Beecroft Rotary have just received approval to build 9 check dams in Villages in Maharashtra, India to aid the villages in harvesting the rainwater.....watch this space for more news!
Fijian, Mr Ali, is a chronic patient from FIJI who was admitted to ICU where he was treated with the Kidney Dialysis machines that Beecroft Rotary Donated. Today, Mr Ali is released from ICU!
Congratulations Johanna Johns, awarded ShelterBox Australia Fundraiser of the Year Award.
Keeley, our 2019 Rotary Youth Exchange Student is having a fabulous time in Switzerland. Check out her Blog about the adventures in her first month.
Objective - Providing Dignity and Sanitation by building 250 Toilets in Mewat, India. Although Mewat is just 120km from New Delhi, this is the most backward part of the state and lags on all measures of development like, life expectancy, literacy, infant mortality, mother mortality and access to water and sanitation.
The last day to put a smile on one of these homeless kids faces is 19th December 2018
SHARE A LITTLE, CHANGE A LOT!
BRING SOME JOY TO KIDS NOT GOING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS 🎄
The Beecroft Rotary Tree of Joy is this year supporting Taldumande Youth Services kids. Our Rotary Tree of Joy is now up in Beecroft Place, Beecroft.
TOILETRY STARTER PACKS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
We have today completed the packing of the toiletry starter packs for the 500 homeless Sydney kids who each year enter the services of Taldumande Youth Services.
Rotary Beecroft are so very proud of this achievement which could not have been done without the great support of YOU, our local community, who in the end, DONATED OVER 9,500 TOILETRY ITEMS!!!!!
Our wonderful volunteers who offered up their homes for our drop off addresses, and those precious volunteers that gave up hours/days/weeks to help sort and pack these 9,500 items into 500 toiletry packs and finally delivery them.
Another special thank you to JP and the staff at Custom Gear who were very helpful in getting the toiletry bags made up and printed for us in what was a tight time line
Cheers everyone and thank you. Let’s start putting these goodies away for our collection next year.
