Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the
Rotary E-Club of One World!
Dear Fellow OWR Members,
Welcome back for another meeting. We are already in September. This month our area of focus will be Basic Education & Literacy, so any ideas for any new projects are most welcome! There are a lot of projects all over the world that can be done in this area, and so many of them are most needed, and really do not have to be too difficult to do. The members of my first Rotary club in Turkey took a course in training volunteers to teach illiterate people how to read and write. Therefore, they were not only teaching uneducated and less fortunate, but the project aimed to help people give back to the community. I would like to suggest a much simpler project for us to do all at the same time, wherever we are. You can take a picture of the book you are currently reading and share it on social media with the hashtag #oneworldrotaryeclubreads.  We can introduce the book briefly so that it could be a nice suggestion for the next reading list, but we can also raise awareness to our very own One World Rotary E-Club!
I would also like to take the opportunity to share with you a project from Turkey. The Turkish Rotarians need help with a global grant for a project to fight with childhood cancer by using the NGS method. Details can be found in the following presentation:  click here
As another note, we will have our September fellowship meeting this Saturday 9.00 am Pacific time (16.00 UTC). It is always wonderful too see you at these gatherings different hours of the day, so please do drop by to say hi.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Ozlem Kocanaogullari
