This week, we heard from our Youth Exchange Program (YEP) student, David. He has come to Australia from Lucerne in Switzerland.
David has hit the ground running; helping out with car parking and the CTK Fun Run on the weekend.
He showed us pictures of his family, his mum and dad and brother, lots of skiing shots and the view from David's house is amazing.
At 16 he is an exceptional young man who speaks German, English, French and a bit of Italian. David filled us in on Swiss politics, national military service and much more.

Our Club’s First International Project

At our dinner meeting held at O’Tooles Corinda last week, members were briefed on the Nepal Chicken Project, the Club’s first international service project to be undertaken in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Redlands Bayside and Cleveland together with the Bentham Foundation.
 
The Bentham Foundation was established in 2012 to assist the Hetaunda region of Nepal, particularly the Chepang people. Rotary’s involvement will be to construct a chicken farm to ensure children living at the hostel established by the Foundation (eventually 500 children) are provided a source of protein and sustainable income from the eggs and poultry meat produced. It will also benefit the local community in terms of the supply chain required to support the industry.
Our Club has been approved for a District Grant for the project amounting to $5,500.

On Wednesday July 22nd at 6.50am, David Siegrist will arrive from Luzern in Switzerland for his 12 month Rotary Youth Exchange with the Rotary Club of Brisbane Taylor Bridge.
Debbie and I were lucky enough to be hosted by his family for a couple of days.
