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.
 

 
 
Hello Taylor Bridge.
 
Since last we spoke Debbie and I have had the pleasure of visiting Jacqui Rashad, our Rotary Youth Exchange Student in Switzerland.
 
Thanks to Jacqui's family for hating us for dinner last night. 
 
 

 
 
Our warmest congratulations to our Rotary Exchange Student, Cindy Wu from Taiwan, who along with her cohort and partners celebrated at the District 9630 ROTEX Youth Exchange Formal last Saturday evening.
 
 
Well done to everyone that was involved, a wonderful time was had by all who attended.
 

 
The Youth Services Director, PP Stephen Ganko and the Youth Exchange Program Officer, PE Craig Clarke are very pleased to announce the Emily Relf has been selected to progress to the next level the process.
 
Emily is a Grade 10 student at Lourdes Hill Girls College in Hawthorne.
She now progresses onto the District 9630 Student interviews on June 4 & 5, and if successful there she will head to the September Training Cap.
 
Congratulations Emily, we hope to see you at the club really soon.
