Mother teaching children
 
Come join our upcoming meeting on November 3 (Thursday) at the Los Angeles Athletic Club where our speaker will be Gem Munro, Director of Amarok Society (www.amaroksociety.org), which provides education to the extremely poor in the city slums of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nigeria by a unique, effective, economical and sustainable method that not only improves lives but also counters the rise of extremism in three of the world's most dangerous countries.
 
Gem Munro has devoted his life and career to improving educational opportunities for disadvantaged people across Canada and abroad. Pursuit of this objective carried him into residence in unfortunate communities across most of Canada, before carrying him overseas. Gem is also an author and artist whose current book is a bestselling collection of stories about some of the extraordinary people he’s come to know in the slums of Bangladesh. For their work, Gem and his wife, Dr. Tanyss  Munro, were recipients of Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals.
 
Join us for pre-meeting happy hour from 5:30pm on the 3rd floor, followed by our meeting from 6:30pm on the 4th floor.
 
Guests and visiting Rotarians welcome!  There is a $25 meal charge per person.
