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

Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good.

Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016.
