Welcome to Meeting No. 130 of the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38


Musimbi Kanyoro

Musimbi Kanyoro is a Kenyan human rights advocate.

March is Rotary's Water and Sanitation Month

President's Message

I hope you have now settled into a new year of work and play and that life is not too frantic for you.


I am pleased that some members have indicated that they are willing to take on more responsibility in the club and I trust that others will also be thinking in the same direction. I sense a good spirit growing in the club. Let's hope that continues. 


You will see that March is Water and Sanitation month for Rotary. This is an important world health issue and you will appreciate that Rotary takes it very seriously. I hope you will seek to understand the needs that are out there in this important area and perhaps suggest ways the club can make a worthwhile contribution.    




Deanne S.

President 2017-18



This week's meeting material 
Featured eClub this week - We have come to the end of the list of known eClubs in Australia. If you know any others please let the webmaster know.
Other Material:
Every day is World Water Day with Rotary - At least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water, a grim reminder for Rotary members who make providing clean water and sanitation an organizational priority. While very few people die of thirst, millions die from preventable waterborne diseases, providing the impetus for our members to provide toilets and latrines and other clean water initiatives in underdeveloped countries. Members also teach these communities to maintain new infrastructure, and organize educational projects to promote hand-washing and other good hygiene habits.
To solve the world's biggest problems, invest in women and girls - As CEO of the Global Fund for Women, Musimbi Kanyoro works to support women and their ideas so they can expand and grow. She introduces us to the Maragoli concept of "isirika" -- a pragmatic way of life that embraces the mutual responsibility to care for one another -- something she sees women practicing all over the world. And she calls for those who have more to give more to people working to improve their communities. "Imagine what it would look like if you embraced isirika and made it your default," Kanyoro says. "What could we achieve for each other? For humanity?" Let's find out -- together.
