Rotary Club of Claremont
Rotary Club of Claremont meets every Tuesday evening at Kelvin Grove in Newlands. A club of professional men and women who, as Rotarians, give back to society by using their professional skills and resources.
We are financially one of the largest clubs in our district and this enables us to support a broad range of organisations and communities within the greater Cape Town area. We are a family of dedicated people, who share a passion for community service and friendship and TOGETHER, WE work hard to impact the lives of South Africans.
our focus areas
investing in young lives
Early Childhood Development
The INJONGO PROJECT is our Early Childhood Development project. We upgrade Educare schooling facilities, so they can qualify to receive government subsidies and become self sustainable.
Supporting our Youth
We have the privilege of making numerous projects possible that support young lives. Of the many projects that we invest in, the majority of them are projects that improve future life outcomes of our youth.
Mothers and Children
We focus on ensuring that mothers and their children can live and grow stronger. Our investments in this area include creating safe environments for abandoned, abused and neglected children & babies.
investing in Communities
Supporting the Elderly
We get involved in elderly support, from taking them for a fun night out, to making sure they live in safe and secure homes.
Supporting the Disabled
We assist various organizations in developing the full potential of quadriplegics and paraplegics.
We are delighted to help make numerous Outreach Projects possible, by financially assisting +30 smaller Rotary clubs. We have invested more than R 1.5 million in this way over the past six years.
the injongo project

We enable these centres to achieve and maintain registration for government subsidies, by upgrading the facilities and bringing them in line with the required regulations.
Over the last 6 years, and with significant financial support from Lewis Group, we have upgraded 58 Educare centres – with a total investment of R18 million.
