Nigerian donor promotes Rotary’s role as a player for peace
For Nigerian philanthropist Michael Olawale-Cole, understanding Rotary's positive influence in the world requires imagining the world without Rotary. "How many millions of people's lives would not have been affected by Rotary's good work?" says Olawale-Cole, who joined Rotary as a member of the Rotary Club of Isolo, Lagos State, in 1980. "If Rotary did not take on the challenge of eradicating polio, how many more millions of children around the world would have died or been crippled by this disease? Who could have done that if not Rotary?" Imagining what the world would be like without Rotary...
Rotary, USAID collaboration improves sanitation facilities in Ghana
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged. Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Addressing the issue isn't simple, as pit latrines need emptying, toilets need maintenance, and promoting hygiene requires education. The H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International...

In response to the rising prevalence of Alzheimer's Dementia, Rotary International will be joining forces with a dynamic organization, the Cure Alzheimer's Fund, to address this growing crisis. The Cure Alzheimer's Fund was launched by a group of venture capitalists in Massachusetts who were frustrated by the slow progress of research. They have funded cutting-edge studies in the hope of finding effective treatments and a cure. One-hundred percent of monies raised goes to research, and they have received the highest ratings on charity review websites.
 
Check out the Alzheimer's/Dementia Rotarian Action Group:
 
 
Anyone interested in membership can download the form on the right.
 

 
 
On April 2, our club hosted a special evening speaker's event to promote Alzheimer's Awareness. Mike Curren from Cure Alzheimer's Fund  (http://curealz.org) spoke about the latest in Alzheimer's research and treatments. He also discussed the Alzheimer's/Dementia Rotarian Action Group (http://www.adrag.org), a Rotary International initiative to promote worldwide efforts to provide information, promote best practices, and elicit donations for research efforts. Attendees agreed that the presentation was extremely useful and gave us action steps to help our own health and spur global efforts.
 
We encourage everyone to check the ADRAG at the link above and to like them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/rotarianalzheimersdementia

We reviewed the choices for the Chennai Rotary to review and we await their response as to how they want to go forward building toilets in the village.  We have also joined the Weymouth Rotary Club, who is pitching this model to their adopted club in Mumbai. Mary is trying to coordinate an information Skype session, tentatively scheduled for April 28th, to bring together Steve Mecca, the Chennai Rotary Club and ourselves to discuss various options.
