President’s Message
September 1, 2022
 
This new Rotary Year brings our first woman Rotary International President, Jennifer
Jones. Her theme is to “Imagine Rotary”; to create a positive vision of the world that all
Rotarians can embrace. She wants us to dream big, and then work toward our dreams.
In our Club in Kihei-Wailea, we tackle issues large and small. We are very involved in
global projects to improve the lives of people in distant lands. We help improve safe
drinking water in schools in Nepal; address cataract surgical needs in Delhi, India, and
work to eradicate Polio in the world, among others.
Locally there are many challenges and opportunities for Rotary to make a difference.
Some of our work includes:
     - Water safety with our ongoing commitment to Rescue Tubes on the beaches of
       South Maui.
     - Youth: with scholarships, school supply drives, middle school leadership
       academies, reading tutoring, supplying dictionaries
     - Health: promoting vaccination, wellness and health education
     - Our environment: cleaning up beaches, and planting trees
 
We work with many community partners and individuals who all embrace “Service
Above Self” for community benefit. Please join us in this common cause. “Together We
Can”.
 
Al Weiland
President, Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea

NEW ROTARY FOUNDATION GRANT
BY MEMBER MARK BARRY, MD:
A VOCATIONAL TRAINING TEAM PROJECT
FOR  FUTURE SURGEON LEADERS IN TANZANIA
We train 3 Orthopedic surgeons in the Pediatric sub-specialty who will start their own training site
 
 
Initiated by Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Barry from Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea (RCKW) on Maui. RCKW has partnered with RC Honolulu Sunrise, District 5000 and the Rotary Foundation to support this unique surgeon training initiative at Muhimbili Orthopaedic Institute (MOI) in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The host is Rotary Club of Oyster Bay in Dar Es Salaam. A Vocational Training Team (VTT) Grant was secured to sequentially bring five Pediatric Orthopedic surgeons from the United States for 3-4 weeks at a time to train 3 top local MOI surgeons in the sub-specialty of Children’s Orthopedics. This is the 5 month final stretch of a 2 year formal fellowship training program at MOI. Upon completion, these will be the only formally trained Pediatric Orthopedic surgeons in Tanzania, a country of 55 million, where half the population is below 18 years of age. The fellows plan to establish the first permanent “Center of Training Excellence” in Pediatric Orthopedics in east, central and southern Africa.
