The recommended supply to be prepared for any natural or other disasters is to have 3-4 days’ supply, and nationally, we’re at about 1-2 days. Buy you can help! Here locally, go to Bloodworks Northwest and donate! From August 10-25, they’ll be giving a $7 certificate to Silver City for each donation (a pint for a pint!).   Schedule an appointment at https://schedule.bloodworksnw.org/DonorPortal/Default.aspx.
     
Rotarians Partner with COTN in Uganda
Rotarian David Jordan (pictured) shared briefly about his and his wife’s upcoming trip to Uganda in partnership with Children of the Nations (COTN https://cotni.org/). Thank you to the Rotarians who donated soccer and rugby balls for them to take over with them as they will work with an orphanage with 700+ kids.
 
Additionally, our Rotary Kids of Action came in before the meeting and stuffed 120 pencil bags with school supplies such as pencils, pencil sharpeners, pens, compasses and protractors for David and Rachel to take as well.

Thank you Kids of Action!
 
Rotarian Jim Barker with Children of the Nations (COTN) introduced James Okalo (pictured), the COTN Country Director for Uganda, who spoke about the impact that Rotary has had there. James has served with COTN for 13 years. He shared that they are so grateful for the lifeline that our own Silverdale Rotary Club threw to Northern Uganda several years ago. This has provided them hope. They are able to offer the people in their area access to their campus programs. This intervention promotes change, creates jobs rather than job seekers, and ultimately democracy.
 
It’s a blessing to see how Rotary has touched so many!
 
Program - Report on Humanitarian Work in Kenya
Port Orchard Rotarian Bob Cairns introduced Naomi Miundi, from Kenya who is with Hifadhi Africa (https://hifadhiafrica.org/).  The Hifadhi Africa is a Kenyan based non-profit organization established as a development, advocacy and youth empowerment organization working to transform lives -providing innovative education support and mentorship and equip communities with the knowledge and skills required to address multiple complex challenges they face.
 
Naomi is visiting the United States because she was named a Mandela Washington Fellow for 2019. The prestigious Fellowship involves academic and leadership training for young men and women who possess leadership potentials in their field and within their community. Naomi’s field is civic leadership, and what a perfect fit for this bright young woman. The three components of the Mandela Washington Fellowship are University placement, summit, and life-long membership of YALI (Young African Leaders Initiative) Naomi’s University placement was Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.
 
Naomi spoke primarily of a region called East Pokot, which has one of the highest illiteracy rates in the world, at 96%; where more than 60% of children never attend school in their lifetime. Without access to education, they cannot build their futures and transform their communities.  They are forced to adopt negative coping mechanisms and practices like cattle rustling, theft, drug abuse, prostitution, and forced recruitment into inter-community conflicts. Factors that hinder East Pokot children from going to school include: poverty and drought, non-existent parental education background, migration and pastoral lifestyle, and a lack of family income. She spoke about each of these challenges in depth, and how HAO has developed solutions. Their programs include:
 
  • Education - Scholarships, e-learning systems, institutional capacity building, construction of a library, and distribution of sanitary napkins for young ladies.
  • Water & Sanitation - Construction of sand dams, rainwater harvesting systems, storage water tanks and water purification system.
  • Livelihood - introducing integrated irrigation farming project, adopt-an-animal project, distribution of relief food
Port Orchard Rotary has funded projects for each of these programs - including a one-time donation to East Pokot of $5,000! Rotary is making a difference near and far!
