Updates on Club Activities
 
Rotary members had a fun filled afternoon learning how to compost in our own backyards from Master Composter Nicole Spring from Veg in Yeg. Veg in Yeg is a social enterprise based in Garneau, Edmonton who grows vegetables, herbs, and flowers for local consumption through "Pay What You Want" pricing.
 
At our May 14th meeting Renee Senko, past president of the Vegreville Rotary club, and Caitlin Johnston, current president of the Vegreville Interact Club, came by to give a presentation on their recent trip to Belize. 
 
Renee and Caitlin joined 8 other volunteers to assist in building a playground at Paraiso School in Corozal.  The playground equipment consisted of repurposed equipment from a playground in Alberta that had been recently upgraded. The Emmanuel foundation handles the logistics of sourcing out and transporting decommissioned items that would be invaluable elsewhere. In Paraiso the local Rotary Club made the necessary preparations to facilitate the build and provided the visiting Canadians with an experience they would not forget.
 
Congratulations to the YEG Passport Rotary Club for getting one step closer to being official.  Charter documents were signed by President Markus Muhs, Secretary Anne McAthey and District Governor Ingrid Neitsch and witnessed by club advisor and member of sponsor club RC of Edmonton Whyte Ave Marilyn Mucha at the District office on Friday, May 10, 2019.

The challenging reality

The first Sustainable Development Goal aims to end extreme poverty everywhere by improving the access of the most vulnerable members of society to economic opportunities.
 
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in Asia and at least 22% of its population still lives under the poverty line. Within Nepal, disabled and other socially marginalised women are amongst some of the most disadvantaged social groups, and are often excluded from training and employment opportunities. When disabled women are employed, they are often paid less than their able-bodied peers.
 
On Tuesday November 9th members of the Whyte Avenue Rotary Club, the YEG Passport Club and their friends were given the opportunity to assist the Edmonton Food Bank.  In the Food Bank's large warehouse downtown we helped sort donated fresh and non-perishable food items and build hampers to be distributed to individuals and families who are having trouble making ends meet. 
 
 
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.
