Weekly Message - 17th February
We heard an outstanding presentation from Katie Williams about her recent exchange year in Brazil. There is no doubt that the change in age requirements for exchange students is a success. Katie spoke with enthusiasm and maturity about her experiences of the past year and her plans for the future. She also revealed how she felt she had changed as a result of the time away, becoming more independent and decisive. Over the years we have heard from many fine young speakers, but none better than Katie. Congratulations to Katie and also to Jonas, who repeated his speech which had been given at the exchange student dinner – this was also of the highest quality. There is every reason to be proud of these two young ambassadors for the Rotary youth programme.
Funds from our Foreign Coin programme have been directed to malaria research. See a letter of thanks for our financial support of the Malaria Vaccine Project at Griffith University, Gold Coast, and an update on this exciting venture, which is progressing towards clinical trials, the final step before the vaccine is tested in endemic countries.
