Join us for our regular meeting this Thursday, October 16th, at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

Our speaker will be Kelly Stieglitz. An alumnus of Baylor University and the USC Keck School of Medicine, Kelly has a life-long passion for philanthropy. With her Masters degree in Global Medicine she is pursuing a career in international development and global health. In 2012 she co-founded The Kai Project, a non-profit organization that works to provide business loans, support, and resources to small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in Mexico. Earlier this year, Kelly got the opportunity to move to Mombasa, Kenya where she worked with Women Fighting AIDS in Kenya (WOFAK) as part of an internship through the Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD). For seven months, Kelly worked alongside the WOFAK staff to establish or strengthen existing programs for people living with or otherwise affected by HIV. This included training community health workers on home-based care, facilitating vocational trainings for young mothers, mobilizing resources and support for orphans and vulnerable children, and more. Having just returned from Kenya, Kelly is eager to share her experiences and to use what she has learned to further expand The Kai Project and move forward in her career. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Downtown Los Angeles and greatly enjoys the fellowship within the club as well as the common enthusiasm among Rotarians for bettering our community and our world.

Our meeting begins at 6:30pm at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, with pre-meeting fellowship from5:30pm at the 3F Invention Bar.

Guests welcome (meal charge of $20).
