Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club Donates $1,000 to Kenya Gather Project

(Millsboro) (December, 2020) — As part of its mission to support global initiatives, the Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club donated $1,000 to Alayna Aiken, Kenya Gather President, during its last meeting of 2020 to support the Sanctuary Homes construction project of Kenya Gather at their Turkwel campus.  The money will be used to complete two bathrooms in the dormitory being constructed to house teachers and some students attending the school to learn how to sew. Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club President, Lucille Cavan, donated another $500 from her company Reimagination Design, so that Alayna could complete the third and final bathroom.

Alayna Aiken, a teacher at Cape Henlope High School, launched Kenya Gather in 2018 to establish educational and vocational training to the women in Kenya in order to raise them out of poverty.  She would be traveling to Kenya over the holiday break to oversee the final stages of construction and the completion of the bathrooms.

“Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club is thrilled to partner with Alayna in this necessary and inspiring endeavor,” stated Lucille Cavan, Club President.  “One of Rotary’s core missions is to provide vocational service, and being able to support such a tangible and impactful effort has been tremendously satisfying to members of our Club.”
