Accompanying the group were Mr. Tony Asfour and Mrs. Mary Asfour from RC of Beirut Cosmopolitan.
The purpose of the visit was the inauguration of the newly installed solar water heating systems which were installed in Boys Boarding Home 4 and the main kitchen and laundry building of JLSS. The systems were installed with a grant donated by the Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Club of Wasserburg, Germany, the Rotary Club of Santa Monica, California, the Rotary Club of Beirut Cosmopolitan, and the Rotary Club of Beirut Phoenix. The inauguration took place on Sunday October 30, 2011. The following day members of the group visited our various departments and discussed with the director, the immediate needs of the school and how they can support future projects that will enhance teaching programs and assist JLSS with necessary equipment for developing vocational training.
The Rotary Foundation through the wonderful supRotary Friends and Partners in JLSSport of the Rotary Club of Wasserburg, the Rotary Club of Beirut Cosmopolitan, and many other Rotary clubs have been supporting our school for over ten years. The two school buses, the furniture of the girls boarding homes, the CNC machine that brought vocational training in our school to the 21st century, the kitchen equipment, and finally the solar water heating systems are among many projects that the Rotary Foundation kindly implemented in our school. These projects enabled JLSS to provide better care, education, and vocational training to our underprivileged children. They also enabled us to reduce our deficit especially with the kitchen equipment and the newly installed solar systems that will reduce our electricity and diesel bills enormously. We also receive very valuable technical support from our Rotary friends.
We express our most sincere gratitude to all our Rotary partners and friends for their wonderful support, and we look forward to furthering our cooperation towards the development of care, education, and vocational training for our students.
