Members and guests of the Saskatoon Rotary clubs held an Old Fashioned Sewing Bee at Sobey's in Stonebridge recently to assist Days for Girls in their quest to aid African Women. 
 
Days for Girls Canada is a grassroots non-profit organization with a goal to create a more dignified, humane and sustainable world for girls through advocacy, and the delivery of programs on reproductive health awareness, education and sustainable feminine hygiene.
 
The DfG Saskatoon Rotary Team is a group of volunteers who are embracing the old fashioned sewing bee to make washable and reusable menstrual supplies for girls in 3rd world countries.  They are restoring days of school, health and dignity to these girls - one kit at a time.  Girls who have sanitary supplies are more confident in school and are more likely to graduate.  For every year of education a girl receives her future income increases.  When a girl has 7 or more years of education, she marries 4 years later, bears fewer children and passes on her knowledge and strength.
 
Rotary is an international organization founded in 1905 whose purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Rotary Club of Saskatoon North presented City Park Collegiate with a $4,000 donation today as part of an ongoing commitment that started over 20 years ago.  Over that time period the Rotary Club has donated money and services of over $50,000 to City Park Collegiate.
 
"We are very excited about this long term partnership with the Rotary Club Saskatoon North.  Over the years, these donation have encouraged our students to attend school on a more regular basis, said Tatum Neveu, City Park Community School Coordinator.  Rotary purchased bus passes so more children could attend school, Rotary purchased playground and exercise equipment, and even cooked and served supper at Parent Teacher nights."
 
"Once profits most who serves best" said Ruth Marritt, Chair of the Community Service Committee.  Our partnership with City Park Collegiate enables Rotary members to serve the less fortunate in our community and assist them with their education."
