As of August 2016- 63 containers packed with school suppies have been shipped mainly to South Africa where the students and teachers have very few facilities. To ship each container it costs approximately $6500but after being packed with school supplies, It contains well over $100,000 in usable equipment to help learners further their education .
To date about 25% of the containers have been financed by the Rotary Club of Grand Bend with another 25% of the funding supplied by many other Rotary Clubs. Individuals and foundations have provided the rest of the money. The containers are loaded in Southwestern Ontario by Rotarians and other volunteers and when they arrive at their final overseas destinations Partner Rotary Clubs arrange for the volunteer unloading and distribution to the schools and school boards.
