81 containers packed with school supplies have been shipped mainly to South Africa where the students and teachers have very few facilities.
To ship each container it costs approximately $6500 but after being packed with school supplies, it contains well over $100,000 in usable equipment to help learners further their education.
The project has been organized by the Rotary Club of Grand Bend.
The containers are loaded in Southwestern Ontario by Rotarians including members of the Rotary Club of Sarnia.  When the containers arrive at their final overseas destinations Partner Rotary Clubs arrange for the volunteer unloading and distribution to the schools and school boards.
