Bikes for Africa

RCW Champion: Margarita Lartitegui

Bikes for Africa

 

The Rotary Club of Weston has teamed up with the Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale Cypress Creek to collectively send bicycles to a local South African Rotary Club for distribution to rural African communities desperately in need.

 The project started in 2016, 8 containers were sent annually except for 2021 during the pandemic. There is an average of 400 bikes per container. 3,200 bikes have been sent to Africa.

The Rotary Club of Empangeni, Rotary District 9370, receives the container and turns it into a mini bike- shop. Then, bicycles are distributed to rural communities without public transportation.

 

Boutique in Cypress Bay HS

Project Lead: Ana Sofia Moreno Ramirez

Project Sponsors: Dr. Kristina Taylor / Tamara Labossiere

 

 

The Boutique initiative aims to empower students by facilitating access to appropriate clothing for interviews and special events, promoting confidence and academic success. This initiative goes beyond merely providing clothes; it contributes to sustainable practices through garment reuse (recycling), ensuring the well-being of the student community and fostering equal opportunities for all.

The boutique offers students a unique experience and emotional support, recognizing that some students may not have the luxury of accessing fancy stores.
