John Wigley - District Foundation Chairman

I am very happy that so many clubs have applied for and received District Grants to support them with their local or inter-national projects this year. This is our club and personal contributions to the Foundation at work and I recommend you read the list of the 24 clubs and 31 projects in our newsletter. If your club did not have a project this year perhaps this will inspire you for next year.

As you may be aware our wonderful District has an unbroken record of finding suitable candidates for Rotary Peace Fellowship Program. Whether it be for the Two Year Master’s Degree or the Three Month Professional Development Course, it seems that now more than ever before, we need to have skilled and passionate practitioners in the realm of peace and conflict resolution. Do you know someone who would be an excellent candidate for this prestigious program?

If so let us know!

Content Item - Read all about it and be grateful you can!

Literacy and a good education is one of the greatest gifts we can give. Everyone has the right to learn to read, write and enjoy the power, pleasures and independence of being literate. For some the journey will be easy, for others it will take much hard work and unfortunately for approximately 18 percent of today’s world population it will never happen. We can change the world, but if we all contribute what we can, we can improve many lives.  This is the power of Rotary and every Club cancontribute.

It has never been easier to support this “Foundation Area of Focus”...........

Pakistan scoring great gains despite challenges

"Pakistan this year has perhaps the best chance ever to achieve success, because tremendous new efforts are being undertaken, led by the government, in implementing a national polio emergency action plan that mobilized all government and civil society resources," says Robert S. Scott, chair of Rotary’s International PolioPlus Committee, about progress in Pakistan.

"There is strong evidence that implementation of the emergency plan is showing results, particularly in key reservoir areas such as Balochistan and Sindh."
