Ellen Weber, Igniting Change
This past Tuesday was new members day and as part of our initiative to try to bring younger members into Rotary, Ellen Weber facilitated a special brainstorming session on leading Rotary with the brain in mind. The workshop was designed to help us come up with some suggestions for new Rotary projects that would inspire others and help ignite change.  As Ellen said, we often assume that millennials and boomers do not have anything in common. Rotary has a reputation for tackling serious problems and maybe it is time to talk together about some of the newer problems now facing the world.
The group divided into six tables of about eight participants each. Each table had some older Rotarians and some younger guests. Each table was then given some time to come up with suggestions for a problem to approach. Then each table discussed various ways that Rotary could approach their particular problem. Finally, each table was asked to use a quiz devised to help each of us discover our areas of interest and strength, based on the eight intelligences of verbal-linguistic, visual-spatial, logical-mathematical, musical, intrapersonal, bodily-kinaesthetic, interpersonal, and naturalistic.  We were then to decide how each of us could use our individual strengths to support our project.
Each table then presented their project to the group as a whole. The suggested projects were wide ranging, from helping young people dealing with mental illness, to improving accessibility of our rotary meetings for younger students or working people, to addressing isolation and loneliness in seniors, to empowering women to be able to make their own decisions by working for abolition of the dower act, to finding ways to improve retirement incomes for the elderly, and finally to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering and math in aboriginal youth. As part of this whole project we all learned that millennials and boomers do have a lot in common, in their desire to make the world a better place.  Through this workshop, we came up with a lot of ideas for projects which can now be used as a basis for further discussion and translation into action.

Patrick Gibson, New Hope School Fundraising Presentation

New Hope School

Our Rotary group has partnered in a joint venture with the Rotary Club of Pretoria to help raise funds for the New Hope School in Pretoria. Patrick Gibson has put together a presentation that he will be making to the other rotary clubs in our area to encourage them to help us with this venture. Our goal is to put enough funding in place for us to be able to apply for a Rotary International matching grant.
Patrick gave us the same presentation he will be making to other local rotary groups. It included a short introduction on the New Hope School, followed by a video that has been prepared by the New Hope School. The New Hope School has been one of the projects of our club for some years now, and most of our members are well aware of the work they do in schooling for handicapped children in the Pretoria area. They provide many services above and beyond the usual schooling activities, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and many others, as needed by their students.
They receive only basic funding from the local government, so must fundraise to provide these other services. Some of the specific projects our funds could be used for would be a specialised playground, or programs to provide technical skills such as kitchen skills, nail and hair salon skills and sewing skills.  Patrick has also put together a ‘Go Fund Me’ page on the web, on which people can get more information, view the video and make contributions. We will also be adding a link on our Rotary web page to this site.
