RI President Barry Rassin and his wife Esther visited Saketri project of RC Chandigarh. He took a round of the Slum where our project is being undertaken. Under this pilot project we are providing education to children under the “After School” classes, as also providing supplements to the malnourished children. Regular health camps are held to provide free medical care to the inhabitants. Capacity building endeavours are also being undertaken for the adults.

President Barry was welcomed by children with a dance performance. Two children, speaking in front of an audience for the first time,  welcomed the President in English. Impressed by their effort, President emphasised on the role Rotary is playing in preparing the youth for the future challenges by educating them and congratulated all  who were involved in the project.
