Benefits of Intl Service

    RI Strategic Plan 2007-10, which identifies seven
    priorities
  • Eradicate polio.

    others. 
  • Expand membership globally in both numbers and
    quality.

    commitment.

Chalabana Community School
  • Goal build a school through a partnership with
    VSDAS (Village School Development and Aid
    Society)
  • VSDAS mandate is to relief poverty through
    education and micro-projects in Zambia
  • In Zambia no school means no trained teachers and
    high dropout rates, especially for women
  • Option to
  • provide ongoing aid to a 3rd world community
    (adopt a community)
  • go to Zambia and build the school

Chalabana Community School
  • No prior support
  • VSDAS is ran by one of the Rotoractors fathers
    (Patrick Mpulubsi)
  • 2009-2010 - 3,000 in budget
  • If we plan on going to Zambia we should help
    VSDAS raise more money or commit to future
    support
  • More info at http//www.vsdas.org/

25
Other Priorities
  • Recruit GSE (Group Study Exchange) team member
    this actually a vocational project
  • Thank Alex for sending birthday cards to Rostov,
    Russia (Alexs former club)
  • Investigate future Friendship Exchange with
    Rostov, Russia

26
Challenges
  • RI matching grants require a minimum of 5,000USD
  • If all possibilities for grantable projects work
    out we need to (a) increase future budgets or (b)
    get other clubs on board
  • We have a lot of small projects, which requires a
    lot of manpower
  • Need to leave club some future flexibility
