The members of Inner Wheel Norway have worked through many years with 4 main projects, together with many small projects towards creating Happier Futures for women and children.
Our International main project is the “Fistula project”, were we help girls/young women in Ethiopia, who are suffering from “Fistula” after childbirth and various mutilations such as rape. IW Norway has donated money to educate 4 midwifes to help these young women and we have bought a vehicle for transportation to the hospital.
Our national project is the struggle against Narcotics. IW Norway donates money to the Custom authority for buying and training sniffer dogs. One dog ready for use cost approximately NOK 1.500 000, - (need about 2 year to train a dog ready for use) and we have in the last 3 year supported them with NOK 450 000. - (ca £38700)
IW Norway support Rotary and their project Handicamp. This camp is for both disabled and healthy persons between the ages of 18-28 years. The camp is arranged every second year. Next in 2016.
