Topic:  
Education and Families in Kiwimbie

Message:

Through a variety of educational options, Kiwimbi provides key tools for children and their families in underserved communities to build a better future for themselves. Financial and volunteer support from the US enable us to change lives, one child at a time! 

About the Speakers:

Lynne has always believed in the impact that individual initiative can have in making the world a better place, one step at a time. As the daughter of educators she also has profound faith in the value of books to bring joy and to help people visualize change and realize their dreams. She and her husband John focused on giving the gift of a good education to their own children and, after years of working in insurance and law, Lynne committed to putting her skills to work for others who may have fewer educational resources or options. She earned her B.A. at Juniata College, her J.D. from Rutgers University, Newark, and worked for 15 years in the life and health insurance industry, focusing on compliance, contracts and other communications with regulators and policyholders.
 
Lynne’s been fortunate enough to have traveled to various parts of the world in her life and, importantly, to have visited a small part of the great continent of Africa on a project with Olubayi Olubayi. It was discussions with him and others that led to the establishment of Kiwimbi. Kiwimbi’s focus on educational opportunity, both academic and vocational, keeps Lynne energized. Her trips to Kenya to work with Kiwimbi’s Kenyan leaders and to observe first hand the differences we are making on the ground there never cease to inspire her.  
 
Lisa Connell brings her ongoing commitment to education with her to Kiwimbi, having spent many years in the classroom as both a third grade and a preschool teacher. In her role as Development and Marketing Coordinator, she is eager to direct her energy and enthusiasm for helping others towards the mission of Kiwimbi in expanding access to education in areas of the world where it is generally less available. Lisa believes Kiwimbi is an organization that can really change people’s lives and she is thrilled to be a part of it.

Creating Today's Super Heros

About the Speaker:

It’s a new Rotary year and it’s so exciting to see that clubs are starting to meet in-person again! Fundraisers, projects and events are being planned! We are ‘People of Action’ doing amazing things in our communities and across the globe!
As your new District Governor, I’m excited about what the year ahead holds for us and for those we serve. Our new Rotary International President, Shekhar Mehta, from the Rotary Club of Calcutta – Mahanagar, India, has chosen his theme for the new year – “Serve to Change Lives.”
President Mehta’s theme sums up what we do in Rotary - we positively impact the lives of people in our own communities and in other countries, most of whom we will never meet. If there is one thing Rotarians are – we are “change agents.” 
The District theme for this year is “Creating Today’s Superheroes” to reflect the incredible work done by Rotarians in our district, most often in their spare time. In the midst of family, work and other obligations, Rotarians still find time to help those in need – truly reflecting “Service Above Self.” 
As change agents, Rotarians are truly Superheroes. Look at the efforts of local Rotarians in continuing to serve our communities in spite of a pandemic. Past DG Brent Hastey led our District through a tumultuous time and under his leadership our Rotarians didn’t miss a beat – providing much needed food to local families, turning RYE into a fabulous virtual experience and finding new ways to do fundraisers (virtually!) so we could continue to support our communities. These projects and many more were ignited by Rotarians with a passion and commitment to identify problems, find solutions and transform communities while changing lives in the process. All the while, becoming Superheroes who care and inspire others to make our communities better in every way.
But there is still so much need locally and in the world. Rotarian Superheroes are needed now, more than ever, to work together to assist and strengthen our communities and continue to change lives for the better.
