SCHOOL OF ST JUDE'S TANZANIA

Guest speaker at this week's meeting was Noella Phillips from Brisbane Highrise Club. Noella spoke about the amazing St Jude's School in Tanzania, founded by a young Australian Gemma Sisia. The school opened its doors in 2002 with 3 students and 1 teacher. It now provides a solid education to 1,900 students from impoverished families. Rotary in Australia has been heavily involved from the start, with many clubs providing financial support and/or volunteers during construction and in the school's operations.
