A very successful 'Rotary Hands-on Day' was held on Saturday April 23rd at Fondazzjoni Wens' Assisted Living apartments in Paola, when nearly 50 volunteers contributed to making improvements to the new home. This was the 8th edition of the Rotary Hands-On Days through which Rotarians and friends contribute with their hands rather than just with their cheque books.
Message from the Rotary International President
The Rotary Clubs of Malta and Gozo have awarded two scholarships, each worth US$30,000, for post-graduate, international studies to Maltese students. Students from Malta and Gozo compete with others from Sicily for the two scholarships which are funded annually by Rotary District 2110, Sicily and Malta. While usually, candidates from Malta win one of these scholarships with the second being awarded to a candidate from Sicily, this year, both District scholarships were awarded to candidates from Malta.
Rotary Club Malta is funding the restoration of a Giuseppe Cali (1846 - 1930) ceiling fresco in Lija Parish Church. The painting is one of a famous collection on the ceiling of the Lija Parish Church.
The video (see Facebook below) shows the already restored Cali fresco's in the centre ceiling and then focuses on the one unrestored Cali fresco on the right wing ceiling.

Rotary Malta School in Sesse, Uganda
The children are egarly awaiting to move into the classrooms, which are being built by local craftsmen, using partly local materials. Our partner "Kids of Africa", who have their main school just across the water on the main land in Entebbe, is supervising the plans and construction and will also see to the operation.
Funding is being provided by the Malta Government NGO funds together with Rotary Club Malta funds. More information from Ian de Cesare.
