This week's meeting material
  • The club's project in Cambodia and Vietnam - 9 - 24 September 2016 - The Club team in Cambodia has had a busy week in Siem Reap and in the nearby countryside. More information will be on the Facebook page shortly. There are photos spread through this week's meeting. 
  • Basic Education and Literacy Strategies - Basic education and literacy is one of Rotary’s six areas of focus. We know that basic education and literacy are essential for reducing poverty, improving health,
  • Why some people are more altruistic than others - Abigail Marsh. Why do some people do selfless things, helping other people even at risk to their own well-being? Psychology researcher Abigail Marsh studies the motivations of people who do extremely altruistic acts, like donating a kidney to a complete stranger. Are their brains just different?
