Previous Projects
North Korea Orphanage
We provided assistance to an orphanage near Pyongyang to purchase one energy efficient cook stove suitable for providing cooked meals for up to 500 orphans. The Club has also donated $6,000 to assist in the provision of solar water heaters to ensure the children have warm water for bathing. Soap supplies for one year are also being provided. Cleanliness is essential for proper child health when so many children live in close quarters in a relatively small building. The solar water heater acquisition is part of a multi-club project involving Rotary Clubs in the Atlantic area and in several other countries. The government of DPRK is providing a percentage of the funds which illustrates the significance of the donation in generating cooperation between DPRK and western countries
Lloyd Dalziel of PEI works with the International Sustainable Community Foundation in Haiti and this organization has been active in improving the lives individual Haitians and their communities. The Club has assisted in a chicken rearing project for the past two years and will continue its assistance. The small scale chicken farms being established have expanded using profits generated into community businesses.
We joined our support to this multi-club project to finance a soy-cow machine for the production of soy milk destined for children in Guatemala. For soy cow or soy goat information see
The Legacy Gardens
The Legacy Garden is a project of The Farm Centre that was started in 2014 - the 100th anniversary of the 1864 conference in Charlottetown that led to the Confederation of Canada. The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty contributed funds to sponsor elevated garden beds in the Legacy Garden that would make it easier for seniors and disabled people to be able to grow vegetables.
PEI Family Violence Prevention Services (PEIFVPS)

Over the course of the 2012/13 Rotary year the committee developed a three year funding project (value of $90,000.), through which Rotary would subsidize a new position within the current staff structure of PEIFVPS. Whereas this organization has had to raise approximately 10% of their operating budget each year, it was felt that both volunteers and staff were having to spend too much time seeking funds and therefore taking valuable manpower away from their main task at hand.
Taking the "teach a man to fish" philosophy, the creation of a full time Development Coordinator position for PEIFVPS would result in financial stability for the organization as well as more focused efforts on behalf of other staff and Board members with the major issues that they are dealing with. It's not very often that a PEI service club makes such a substantial contribution to another organization. In fact, Rotary is quite proud of the fact that this is a highly innovative approach to helping another organization. In the words of past President Lewie Creed, "as Rotarians we can be very proud of making a difference in promoting peace in families and providing hope to children who are most affected by this recurring phenomenon."
School Construction in, Ngarum, Cameroon
The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty is very proud of the fact that it makes a difference for not only people on the Island, but through Islanders it also has a positive impact on people around the world. The club’s largest international project is a result of a partnership with honorary club member Sr. Noreen MacDonald CND of St. Peters’ Bay, PEI, to improve educational opportunities at her various (post-retirement) postings in Africa. 
Most recently, the club has made a $70,000 donation for the people of the isolated region of N'garum, Cameroon, to realize a dream: a shiny new high school where their children can be educated in a way that will build not only their own skills but will also raise the living standards of the whole region. This school, including the all-important well, was built in the remote community completely by hand, and can serve 300 students. It opened in the fall of 2011, and Sr. Noreen told the club during an August visit, “You made a miracle happen.”
The club contributed the cost of materials, while the actual construction was done by local people, through mostly volunteer work.
