The Rotaract Club of East Nassau, a community service organization comprised of young professionals, recently directly impacted the lives of six children by enabling them to continue playing the sport that they love.


The six future soccer superstars all play for the Insurance Management Bears, managed by fellow Rotarian Hope Sealey. The sponsorship, at a cost of $175 per child, covers the coaching fees and the uniform cost, and through the playing of the sport teaches the children teamwork, social skills, commitment and a host of other skills that will take them far beyond the soccer pitch.


“While it’s important that we assist with major natural disasters, donations like this can make a tremendous positive impact on a child’s life”, said Jaime Lewis, Community Service Director for the Rotaract Club of East Nassau. “Just by enabling kids to play soccer we help provide them with important life skills that will, in time, help to better the entire Bahamas.”


The Rotaract Club of East Nassau, sponsored by the Rotary Club of East Nassau and a member of Rotary International, is a community service organization for young professionals ranging in age from 18-30. The Club was the 2010 recipient of the District 7020 Rotaract Club of the Year Award. More information can be found at their website, or at
