Title: Ruchi
Speaker: Jean Phipps

Jean gave us an illuminating and articulate account of The Ruchi Project.
She has been involved since the start and has contributed and learnt a lot 
from her participation.

Jean will be inducted into our Club next Friday.

We are looking forward to having her as a member.
She will be a valuable asset to the Club.

RUCHI - Rural Centre for Human Interests

RUCHI Projects organised by this committee engage the volunteer support, skills and knowledge of Rotarians to raise the standard of living of isolated communities 
in India's Himalayan District 3080.


Rotary volunteers provide a resource and organise projects that meet RUCHI's 
identified needs in a co-ordinated and planned manner. 
Rotarians from District 9940 are involved in water and soil conservation, transport, crop enhancement and protection, health, literacy, IT (Information Technology), and income generation projects.

Email from our Chile exchange student: Fernanda 

Brian K. received this email from Fernanda:
“I am so happy to hear from you! We were so happy, because here football is like Rugby is for you, so now we are hoping to win against Brazil tomorrow, which we know it is almost impossible, but we still have faith that we can do it!

How have you been? How is everybody at the Rotary Club? I always remember all of you and keep you in my heart every day! 

I am studying at University now, which has been so hard, and I am really stressed. But it is still a good thing to be there. I am studying Nutrition at the Medicine School of University of Chile. It is really hard to get in, so it is supposed to be hard once you are in. 

I always think about when I will be coming back to New Zealand, because I really want to. I always watch the All Blacks on TV. Can you believe it’s been 3 years since I went there? It'll always feel like yesterday to me! 

haven't practised my English very much, so that is why may be some of the sentences are wrong. I am here waiting for all of you to come and visit me at my place.

Best wishes to you, your family and the Rotary Club of Courtney Place. Of course, I will never forget it!”
