Jim Christian introduced our speaker Thomas Hendrickson, President and Director since 2010. Dr. Hendrickson has many years of experience in forming and running overseas operations. He has worked on projects in Tanzania for the last ten years. He currently teaches engineering at Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Iringa Hope is a US, 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation dedicated to alleviating poverty in central rural Tanzania in the Iringa District by providing capital for small loans to farmers and shopkeepers running small stores and other local enterprises. This is commonly called micro-finance or micro-credit. Rural Tanzania is one of the poorest regions in the world.

In the past year they have provided 652 loans through their network of Savings and Credit Coops. They will only approve loans if the purpose of the loan is to make money. Iringa Hope provides training classes, seminars and they have a weekly radio program that reaches out to an audience of 100,000, drawing questions from throughout the area.

The staff from Iringa Hope has learned over the past year that most of the loans are taken out for farming and the borrower’s income rise from less than $300/year to about $900/year. This increased income is used to feed their family, send their children to school, and replace their mud huts and grass roofs with brick homes with tin roofs.

Doc Aak introduced our speaker, Tim Mulcrone, PolioPlus Chair for District 5950. Having been inspired as a GSE Team Member to Chile in 1985, Tim Mulcrone became a charter member of Chanhassen Rotary in 1987.  He is a Past President, Multiple Paul Harris Award Recipient, has served on the District’s Group Study Exchange Committee, Club Visioning Team and as Assistant District Governor of Area 6.  He has also played an active role in Chanhassen Rotary’s relief efforts in Chimbote, Peru.  Tim has taken an interest in moving Rotary closer to completing our commitment to eliminate polio worldwide and was recently asked to lead the District’s polio fundraising effort.

Tim inspired, informed, and entertained our Club on the eradication efforts of Rotary throughout the world to End Polio. The fight started in 1955 when an oral Polio Vaccine was invented and hopeful to its end in 2014. Tim stated that is has been a long fight, fighting against other noble and needed interests and coming against new foes with myths and the Taliban. He shared how the fight for him is personal, with a story about his mom Annie and her brother Tim, and how Tim died at a very young age from Polio.  “We are this close”

News From Rotary International

Alumni award winners turn heads with unique accomplishments
Maya Ajmera founded the Global Fund for Children in 1993 to provide seed money to community-based organizations that help at-risk children across the world. Since then, GFC has awarded more than $32 million in grants to over 600 organizations in 80 countries, improving the lives of millions of children – from educating AIDS orphans in Uganda to conducting so-called curbside classrooms for waste pickers in Cambodia. "Education is the key to getting human beings out of poverty," says Ajmera, whose studies at St. Xavier's College in Mumbai were sponsored by the Rotary Club of China Lake in...
Paralympian Dennis Ogbe defying paralysis
Dennis Ogbe grips the discus in his right hand. He swings his arm and twists at the waist as far to the right as he can. With one move he snaps back, letting the saucer fly. Upper-body strength is important for any discus thrower, but for Ogbe, a Paralympian, it’s everything. At age three, Ogbe contracted malaria, and while receiving treatment at a clinic near his home in rural Nigeria, he became infected with the poliovirus. Paralyzed from the waist down, he was sent home in the arms of his mother. He credits his physical rehabilitation to a harsh form of therapy – the taunts of the other...
Moving doctor’s office rescues women from breast cancer
In Tamil Nadu, India, two doctors, both members of the Rotary Club of Srirangam, discovered an alarming trend in the remote city outskirts of Trichy, women dying of breast cancer. Drs. K. Govindaraj and K.N. Srinivasan knew that much of the death and suffering could be avoided, and both were motivated by their personal experiences with the disease. Govindaraj watched his mother die of breast cancer a decade earlier, and helped found the Dr. K. Shantha Breast Cancer Foundation in her memory.  Srinivasan, an oncologist, witnessed unprecedented growth in the number of younger patients coming to...
Writer and war widow Artis Henderson finds peace through Rotary
In the first month of my stay in Dakar, Senegal, as a Rotary Scholar, a friend gave me a piece of helpful advice. “Buy a wedding ring,” she said. I had already learned that as a young American woman in a Muslim country, I attracted a certain kind of attention. But a ring? My friend nodded. “That way everyone will leave you alone.” With my thumb I felt for the empty space on my left ring finger -- a place that, even now, I sometimes touch and worry where my ring has gone. I removed my wedding band on the one-year anniversary of my marriage, eight months after my husband, Miles, was killed in...
Peace fellow Ali Reza Eshraghi on today’s Iran
Iranian-born journalist Ali Reza Eshraghi, 35, is the Iran project manager at the Institute for War and Peace Reporting and a teaching fellow in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After working as an editor at several Tehran newspapers – all of which were eventually banned or shut down by the government – he became a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, and met Pate Thomson and Mary Alice Rathbun, of the Rotary Club of Berkeley. In 2012, he completed his studies as a Rotary Peace Fellow at the Duke-UNC Rotary...
