Updates on Club Activities
On February 12th Meena Deccan gave a compelling talk on the topic of Honour Based Violence.  Her presentation challenged many of the prevailing perceptions surrounding this phenomenon and laid out why conventional social services and law enforcement guidelines may be ineffective in breaking the escalating pattern of emotional and physical abuse involved.
 
Stan Bissell has a ShelterBox conveniently tucked away somewhere in his new home.  In the aftermath of a disaster this kit contains many of the essentials required to protect a family from the elements and allow them to begin to rebuild their lives.  Inside it's large durable storage container, which can be repurposed in a multitude of ways, the ShelterBox contains a family sized tent, solar lights, water storage and purification equipment, thermal blankets, cooking utensils and basic tools. Stan feels fortunate to have this potentially life-saving kit in his house.
 
 
The Rotary Club of Whyte Avenue helped support a loan of $100,000 through KIVA to Indosole, which will help to recycle tires, create jobs, and make 20,000 pairs of shoes in Indonesia. This loan is special because it achieves both socioeconomic and environmental impact through an innovative business model. 
 
Join us on Tuesday, January 22nd from 6 to 7 pm at the Rooster Cafe & Kitchen on Whyte Avenue, as club member (and International Programs Chair) Stan Bissell will be talking about how ShelterBox has provided emergency shelter for over a million people displaced due to a natural disaster as well as his plans to raise money for ShelterBox with his "Shine for ShelterBox" fundraiser!.
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
 
 
International Projects We Support
 
KIVA Microfinance Loans
One of Rotary International’s six area’s of focus is growing local economies by “strengthening local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.” The Rotary Club of Whyte Avenue is working on this area of focus by providing microloans through kiva.org.
 
Stan Bissell shared the story of Thúy, a female entrepreneur living in a remote rural community in Vietnam, who the club has supported with a microloan.
