                                    4. Children's Feeding Scheme

Thousands of children in our area walk to school every day, just like all of us used to walk to school...... The only difference is that amongst these children, there is a great amount who did not receive a nice warm breakfast at home before setting off.  Neither did they receive a lunch box for break time.   For these children, their next meal will be at home that evening.  Read More.....

Every year the Paarl Rotary Club presents the Seniors Concert.  Kaufie Kaufman explains how it originated:

" During 1983/84 I attended a talent show at the Police College held in aid of the Southern Cross Fund and was very impressed at the young talent in our town. I contacted the organizer, Mr. Bram Potgieter to enquire if they would assist Rotary to put on a show more specifically for seniors from the more disadvantaged areas, as many of these people do not get the opportunity to attend an event of this nature.
