On Friday 6th December 2013, the Partners in Service organized a Christmas treat for approximately 45 students of the Brasso Venado Primary School situated. Rotarians joined with the spouses in providing lunch, ice cream and toys for the children (ages 5 - 12 years). Food hampers were also provided to the parents of the children.

The drive from our Club location to the school took us along a scenic path through the central mountain range and lasted for about one and a half hours. Led by President George, other Rotarians: Robert, Mike, Daniel, Ronald, Janet, Dean made the trip. We were warmly greeted by the Principal and students of the school.

The first highlight of the event was the grand entrance of Santa Claus aboard a fire engine. This created an air of excitement among students, teachers and parents. Santa emerged with a bagful of toys and distributed to the eager students.

The next highlight was the unexpected reciprocation of gifts from the students. They presented the Spouses and Rotarians with fresh produce from their gardens. This was a touching moment fr Rotarians as we were not expecting this.

In departing, students sang well wishes to us.........have a look at the pictures as token memories of a wonderful and gratifying project executed by our Partners in Service.Image

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
Illiteracy traps adults, and their families, in poverty
Around the world, millions of adults are unable to read or write, and therefore struggle to earn a living for themselves and their families. Even in the United States, with its considerable resources, there are 36 million adults who can’t read better than the average third-grader, according to the international nonprofit ProLiteracy. In Detroit, Michigan, a widely cited 2003 survey conducted by the National Institute for Literacy found that almost half of residents over age 16 were functionally illiterate -- unable to use reading, speaking, writing, and computer skills in everyday life....
Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...
