The Rotary clubs of Wateringen in the Netherlands and Cape of Good Hope are collaborating in an exciting project to raise funds for the Open Door Building in Ocean View, Cape Town while simultaneously supporting the Carmen Stevens Wines nonprofit organisation, writes Marcel van den Berg.
In May 2022, Dutchman Marcel van den Berg became a member of Rotary Club Wateringen in the Netherlands. As van den Berg and his Capetonian wife live in Cape Town for about five months each year, it was suggested he connect with the Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope – based in the Fish Hoek valley – and find a mutually beneficial project.
After visiting and assessing the Rotary Club’s projects, a decision was made to support the Valley Development Projects’ Open Door projects, in particular, to help finish the outdoor facilities at the Open Door Building in Ocean View – a facility where children can play safely after receiving their daily meal.
A fundraising plan involving selling bottles of Cape wine in the Netherlands is underway. Wine from the Carmen Stevens Winery in Stellenbosch, which focuses on cultural transformation, will be sold at a high margin.
