The Rotary club, through its members, has offered vocational training programmes, renovated hospitals, donated medical equipment and medicines, donated dictionaries and other educational materials to schools with some schools being renovated by the club.
The club has also contributed towards preserving our environment through planting of trees in strategic areas. These and many other projects have been carried out by the club's past presidents in the past years.
This 2022-2023 Rotary year when we have been asked by the Rotary International President to "Imagine Rotary", the club, under the leadership of the current president, Imaginative President Omotunde Olaleye has again impacted lives.
Within the short period of time as the club president, Rotarian Olaleye who assumed office at the start of the Rotary year on the 1st of July 2022, has carried out several projects.

The club has also sponsored 10 youths in the Rotary Youths Leadership Academy (RYLA) 2022, a training programme organized for youths between the ages of 14 and 25 years of age, recently held between August 21 and August 28 at the Leadership Training Centre (Sea School) in Apapa, Lagos.
The latest project done by the club is the renovation of Heritage Homes Orphanage in Lekki. Three damaged doors were replaced with new ones while the remaining faulty doors were repaired and repainted, faulty door locks and handles were replaced with new ones, the generator house was renovated, and carpet grass was installed in the children's playground.
