In the context of its 'Coin for Kids' projects, the Lions Club Erasmus recently donated €10,000 to the Institut pour Déficients Visuels (Luxembourg's Institute for the Visually Impaired) for the purchase of two enlargement systems to aid visually impaired young people.
This system will enable students to participate in a normal school environment and permit them to complete their education in Luxembourg.

The Bonnievale Project (Bonnie People Project) is an NGO which provides early education and care for children aged 2-4, as well as an afternoon youth club for those children living in the squatter camps, and a community of makeshift homes for poorer people in the area, in Bonnievale, South Africa.
I was a volunteer for the NGO in 2013 and spent 6 weeks in South Africa. Already then, I could see what excellent work they were doing and also where there was room for improvement in their facilities. Since then, I have received updates from various members of the Bonnievale Project, and have seen a wonderful change on site and in volunteer morale.
The money donated by Coins for Kids has been put towards a multitude of projects, along with other donations.
