Here are a few pictures of Sheila's recent trip to Los Angelitos, Rotary Club of Calgary North’s Newest International Project. Keep posted for the full presentation.
 
 

 
 

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

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
