RYLA Online Information Night and Q&A
 
Dear Rotarians,
 
The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a dynamic leadership conference for 18 to 30 year olds. This enriching experience is only a few months away, coming up on the 7th to 13th of July 2024.
 
The information night is much closer, only a few weeks away, taking place Wednesday 22nd of May at 7:30 pm. This virtual session is tailored for Rotary Clubs and potential participants, providing an exclusive look into this phenomenal opportunity for someone to build their leadership potential and forge meaningful connections. Please find attached RYLA 2024 flyer for further information.
 
We can't wait to chat with you, so make sure to get your questions ready to fire away. Most importantly, start reaching out to people who you think would benefit from the RYLA Experience. Please register for an invite to RYLA 2024 info night!
 
Thanks,
The RYLA Team

general information & other news...
=======================================================
Polio Plus Society
 
What is the Polio Plus Society?
It is a Rotary fundraising and recognition program that specifically supports Polio eradication.
 
Why the eradication of Polio?
Rotary International is a founding member of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Polio is a paralysing and potentially deadly infectious disease. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
 
Isn’t Polio virtually eradicated anyway?
Whilst it remains endemic only in two countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyse as many as 200,000 children each year.
 
What is the commitment to become a member of the Polio Plus Society?
The commitment is $100US per year until Polio is eradicated worldwide.
 
Who can become members?
The general public including Rotarians and their friends.
 
How do you become a member?
  1. Go onto the 9810 District website, find the Donation Page and follow the prompts.
  2. Make the donation.
  3. Complete the Commitment Form and email David Grieve (davidgrieve.au@gmail.com).
If you would like a presentation via ZOOM at your Club meeting, please contact District Polio Co-Ordinator David Grieve preferably by email or on 0488 480402
Just a gentle reminder that the DG’s Partners Project which is to End Polio can be made in the normal manner (refer form here https://www.9810rotary.org.au/documents/en-au/9d5560f8-34b1-472f-8fdd-7216fe03d768/1). If you do donate, please advise DG Ian at ianballantine@9810rotary.org.au or Helen Parker at drhelenparker@9810rotary.org.au

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
 
 
Rotary Club of Springvale City is looking for people interested in travelling to Cambodia this year to witness our projects first hand and be interested in supporting our new projects in  the rural areas of Cambodia to educate the children for a better future and become leaders in their communities.
 
We will be travelling around September/October 2024 for 2-3 weeks which will include sightseeing with an informed guide (Seda Douglas) of areas within Cambodia you may not get to see normally.
 
Accommodation will be self contained units with kitchen ,laundry etc. so we don’t need to take luggage with us on our overnight trips. This will be in Phnom Penh and possibly Siem Reap.
 
Cost will be announced after numbers are decided and after Seda has been to Cambodia later this month.
