Uganda Mental Health Global Grant, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Denver Mile High, was launched on August 31, 2021. 
 
The 9-month project consists of two primary activities: 1) mental health counseling and 2)  empowerment skills.
 
The first stages of the project were to provide booster training for current health workers, train new trainers and train new health workers.  These trainings were all essential to prepare for the primary purpose of the the Grant:  to offer counseling to the community members with mental health issues. 
 
The reaction of the new trainees has already confirmed the importance of this grant:
  • Jenneth, a newly trained health worker, said that the training he received gave him a lot of knowledge that he is going to use for the rest of his life.
  • Margaret said that, with what she and the other new health workers learned, they will be able to do something good in the community.
 
Denver Mile High Rotary raised over $13,000 through sponsorships of our 10 bike riders.  Congratulations to each of them:  Melanie Gentz, Steve Blazek, Tom Cella, Janis Cella, Marty Waters, Margaret Van Vliet, Annely Noble, Debra Flick, and Charlene Porter.
 
It's not too late to support them--donations will be accepted until the end of the year.

Denver Mile High Rotary has partnered with the Rotary Club of Highlands in Zimbabwe since 2005, focusing on economic training for women.  But when the Highlands Rotarians met with community representatives from Tafara and Mabvuku, in the suburbs of Harare, the Rotarians found out that clean water was a much bigger issue.  So we turned our efforts to rehabilitating current community wells, drilling new ones, and emphasizing improved sanitation.  Get the rest of the story.
