What if not having sanitary supplies meant DAYS without school? Days of isolation?
Girls use leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, rocks, anything they can find...but still miss up to 2 months of education and opportunity every year. It turns out this issue is a surprising but instrumental key to social change for women all over the world.
Club members Steven Aquilina and Steven Kidziak have been instrumental in our club in supporting the work of Days for Girls in Nepal and this week will be making more kits in association with Sunday Assembly.

Belgian Beer Cafe, 6pm for 6.30pm
Our guest speakers at this week's Rotary meeting will be Justin Wibrow and John Orr from the Rotary Club of Yarra Bend.
In 2011 the Rotary Club of Kew on Yarra (now RC Yarra Bend) commenced a project to mobilise its Members to meet and fulfill the ever present demand for Mentoring in the community. It was the Club’s position that if this project was to succeed Members would need to be ‘mentor ready’. To ensure Members were ‘Mentor ready and capable’ the Realising and Building Mentor Capability program was developed.
The aim of this program is to introduce Mentoring within a framework that allows Members, that in most cases possess extensive informal mentoring experience, to formalise their knowledge whilst providing them with an opportunity to develop an informed position on how mentoring will operate both in terms of Governance and Approach for their relevant projects, it Members and the Club.Read more...
