|President Sue Avison and DG Martin|
When we visited Hutt City Rotary we heard about so many activities. Local projects have included the fire sculptures, work on the Hutt River Trail, water fountains for the Great Harbour Way, and literacy in prisons.
Hutt City is a strong supporter of youth and have great relationships with two local primary schools and Hutt Valley High School. They have just received a Rotary Foundation District Grant to support a technology forum to expand potential educational and employment opportunities for young people. They have also just taken on running of the RYLA programme for the next three years. They also support RYPEN, Science in Schools, dictionaries in schools and many other youth programmes.

Hutt City's international projects are diverse, including funding a coconut oil press in the Solomon Islands, life jackets for Africa, medical and educational support in Ethiopia and Debbie Mair's most recent work with orphaned elephants in Borneo with the Rotarian Action Group for Endangered Species - these are just a few and they are developing more.
