This week, the club was pleased to have Rtn. Kyaluzi Francis Xavier of the Rotary Club Of Kalisizo, Uganda present on his club and its partnership with Calgary clubs.

Welcome Kyaluzi!

The Rotary Club of Kalisizo was chartered on 3rd September 2002 with  46 members by PDG Dr. Valinder Singh Sur under District D9200 now D9211. This is the first Club in a rural area in Uganda
Presently, they are 19 members, 11 men & 8 women. Clubs members’ age ranges between  35 and 75 years.
 
Projects

The  Club began with a leisure garden where people go  to rest, relax and read books.

Theybhave been adopting families in our communities from their vulnerable states to better standards of living.

The club benefited from the CURLY GALBRAITH GLOBAL MEMORIAL scholarship fund where a number children have been abled to complete University and Tertiary Institution studies and a number of these students have graduated and are now working.

Partnerships with Calgary Rotary Clubs

Together with the Rotary Clubs of Calgary Canada, Kyotera and Masaka, They have implemented the TRACC project whereby they assisted over 800 children in schools, vocational skills up to University levels and Tertiary Institutions.These children were taken back to school and provided them with some basic needs of life.

Under the TRACC project they implemented a revolving loan microcredit component whereby they lend to groups of people on user friendly interest rate.

Hospital Equipment Donated By RC- Calgary

The Rotary Club is very active in the community. Because of time constraints, we are not able to show you all of them. The club also runs an Adopt-A-Village program, funds operations for children whose family cannot afford them and a number of school support programs. 

 

Thank you Kyaluzi for your presentation!

 

 
 
Dear Rotarians,
 
A further update for you, enabling you to make  appropriate decisions regarding your donations in support of The Fort McMurray disaster.
 
Many Rotarians have advised me that they would like to donate via District 5360 so we do have another option for you. From a District point of view these are three ways you can donate although there are of course many others:
 
-Donate through Red Cross.
 
- Donate directly to  District 5370`s Charitable Foundation at www.canadahelps.ca/rotarydistrict5370  (Notation of Fort McMurray Fire relief fund)
 
-Donate to District 5360 via The Canmore Rotary Club Charitable Foundation at   www.rotaryclubofcanmore.ca/charitablefoundation   . Click on the `Fort McMurray Relief Fund link and select ``choose this cause``. This takes you to an ATB web site . By going this route all donations will be matched by 15% by ATB  . Tax Receipts will be issued for all donations $25 and over.
Cheques can also be mailed to:
 
The Canmore Rotary Club Charitable Foundation
P.O.Box 8025,Canmore , AB. T1W 2T8
(please mark `Fort McMurray Relief Fund`in the memo area of the cheque.
 
 
 The idea here is that once funds have been collected  we will then to talk to Fort McMurray Rotarians and District 5370 to determine where these funds could be best utilised, as the town starts to rebuild.
A committee consisting of Canmore Rotarians along with other District representatives will then make decisions and forward funds to District 5370 Charitable Foundation which will then be responsible for fund disbursement. You will then be advised what your donated funds have gone to.
 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Canmore Club for agreeing to take on this task on behalf of The District.
 
Hopefully this will answer many questions that you might have. There will also be an opportunity at our District Conference to donate.
 
Thank you very much for everything you are doing. . I have heard of a number of wonderful donations already.
 
In Rotary

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
