China Friendship & Projects
During the 2015-16 Rotary year D9940, through Rotary Hutt Valley, hosted a Teacher Exchange from Mi Yun County (near Beijing) and Lower Hutt.  This was a pilot programme which has led to an opportunity for clubs in RI District 9940 to sponsor and assist with the implementation of Vocational Training Teams between Mi Yun County and Hutt Valley school teachers and schools over the next three years in 2017, 2018, 2019. 
 
Since 1983 strong relationships have been developed with CAFIU (Chinese Association for International Understanding). Many exchanges have taken place between Rotary 9940 and CAFIU.  This Committee manages the relationship between Rotary in New Zealand and CAFIU and explores the opportunities that exist for friendship exchanges and humanitarian support in China.
 
Provision of resources for a new Zha Shui School was as a result of assessment of opportunities in 2005 and 2006 resulting in matching grant applications with The Rotary Foundation and partnering with the Rotary Club of Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Please contact PDG Judy Bain if you are interested in participating in this exchange.
