Dit jaar heeft Club Rotaract Scheveningen de grachten van de Haagse stad schoongemaakt als onderdeel van de End Plastic Soup actiedag op 4 juni. Dit was net een dag voor Wereldmilieudag. We zijn begonnen met een kano bij de Bierkade en hebben een rondje gemaakt …
We, Rotaract club Scheveningen, would gather on the 4th of June at 11am in Bierkade, the Hague, to go kayaking and clean up the city canals!
This is our 5th year doing EndPlasticSoup action day and we would like to invite you to participate to make our city cleaner.
It is crucial, that canals are cleaned, as they usually send off their waste into rivers, which in turn bring waste to the oceans. It is important to clean up our canals, rivers and oceans if we want to have a sustainable future and why wouldn’t we?
Let’s see less litter all around us and be an example for the rest to do so!
See you kayaking!
Op zaterdag 9 april hebben we samen met Rotarians en Welzijn Scheveningen onze krachten gebundeld om Oekraïne te helpen. Een deel van ons team stond voor twee supermarkten om mensen te vragen eten of andere goederen te kopen, zoals luiers, zeep, kaarsen en lucifers, voor …
In the past weekend, members of our club helped with 2 activities.
The first one was with the local city farm, Stadsboerderij Schildershoeve, where we planted some flowers and installed a plane spring swing for children to have fun with, now that the spring is here. People working at the farm were happy with the result!
The second activity was to collect non-perishable items for a social shop of Scheveningen, Schappelijk. The Social Shop Schappelijk offers extra help for the residents of Scheveningen, who find themselves in a delicate financial situation. Members of Rotaract Scheveningen, Rotary Scheveningen and Schappelijk were placed at 5 different supermarkets near the Scheveningen beach. With the help of the residents, we were able to collect 235 crates of non-perishable products.
Our year 2021 ended with a big project that we did for Stichting Perspectief. As an outreach project, we gathered Sinterklaas gifts for women and children who are not home due to domestic violence. We wanted to do something special as Sinterklaas could bring joy to everyone around. After we kicked off our project, we gathered donations to buy presents. Via one of our members, we also contacted the local ING office, which also decided to participate and donate a lot of gifts.
On Thursday, 2nd December we gathered together to wrap all the gifts, so the next day we could hand them out at locations of Stichting Perspektief. We had quite a lot of fun wrapping gifts.
On Friday, 3rd December 2021, we members of the club Rotaract Scheveningen, left our warm houses on a very cold evening and joined in an unexpected journey. The Solidarity. We received so much love and gratitude from children and their mommies living in one of the numerous shelters that house survivors of domestic violence.
The journey with each family, Sinterklaas, duizendenkleuren Piet and two wonderful assistants was unique! Who received the gifts were us! Thank you, children, and mothers, for believing in generosity, accepting our gifts and returning it with tenderness and with lots of smiles and happiness! The Sinterklaas is in each one of us! Tot volgend jaar!
Ons jaar 2021 eindigde met een groot project dat we deden voor Stichting Perspectief. Als outreach-project hebben we Sinterklaascadeaus ingezameld voor vrouwen en kinderen die door huiselijk geweld niet thuis zijn. We wilden iets speciaals doen, want Sinterklaas kon iedereen om zich heen vreugde brengen. …
