Matthew Harrison

Beautiful Gate Orphanage, Maseru, Lesotho

Beautiful Gate Orphanage

Matthew will share his personal experience with the Beautiful Gate Orphanage. He will also describe the plight of the older orphans in this part of Africa — and describe the PEKA Project.

The PEKA project is planning to provide a home and education for these young people, thus preparing the children to graduate with skills and confidence.

There may be an opportunity for Rotarians in several clubs to play a significant role in this emerging and moving story.

Beautiful Gate is registered with the Government of Lesotho as a Society not for Gain (Reg. # 2003/68) and are legally accountable to the board of Beautiful Gate Lesotho made up of Basotho and International members. The organisation was started in 2007 and continues to grow.

All are welcome to this meeting of the Rotary Club of Bowen Island as we hear Matthew Harrison. Note, there may be a members’ business meeting following Matthew’s presentation.

Time: Feb 11, 2021 07:30 PM Vancouver (we open the meeting at 7:15 PM for some informal time together)
