Rotary Club donates palm kernel cracking factory, others to community
President of Rotary club of Lagos, Mr. Ayo Banjo, who presented the Factory alongside other Nigerian senior citizens, who are members of the club, noted that that the donation was part of Rotary’s Community Service initiative.
According to Banjo, Rotary club decided to intervene to address the plight of the rural community, which had suffered neglect over the years
“Rotary has succeeded in commissioning two major projects at Ita Marun here in Ibeju Lekki Local Government Area. One of the projects is Palm Kernel Breaking Machine and the other one is Refuse Dumping Facility. We intend to carry out other projects like community bathrooms/toilets and potable water.
“Rotary in the current year recognizes the importance of caring for the community, which is one of our core missions. We have so far provided milk and drugs for malnourished children to the tune of N8million out of a total budget of N15 million, which we intend to spend on all the projects.”
Chairman of the Community Development and Micro Credit Committee of Rotary Club of Lagos, Mrs. Modupe Sasore, said her club found the need to help the community, which has been impoverished over the years.
According to her, when we came here, we saw women cracking palm kernels with stone, we decided to transform them and donate automated palm kernel cracking machine to them and built a shade to house the machine. With the new machine, what used to take 10 days to crack now takes only two hours.
