Meeting speaker this week - Gerard Holland
Many International Students crave a sense a belonging and are seeking a community to join with an opportunity to add value. Rotary has an under explored opportunity to engage with international students and bring them into the Rotary network. The students are young, energetic and determined to make a difference. Engaging with International Students will not only provide diversity to the Rotary community but enable the students to build out their own networks.
Some of the projects Outcome.Life are already coordinating with Rotary is the build of a new website for Donations in Kind (“DIK”) and a research project on how donated goods can be tracked around the world that leave the DIK warehouse.
