MONTHLY REPORT OCTOBER 2011

HIGHLIGHTS:
In October, Performing Life youth put on performances throughout Cochabamba, where hundreds of people were able to appreciate the multi-faceted skills of the Circus Arts Groups and Hip Hop K’ayma Project.

We are pleased to announce that a the Rotary Clubs of Cochabamba and Temecula, CA have partnered to raise funding to support our cafeteria program, providing a healthy meal each day for youth who come to the classes. This program will also create jobs for several of the mothers, further improving family sustainability. Thank you to all who have worked so hard for over a year to bring about this international collaboration.

The volunteers’ hard work is producing some great results. Christina’s photography workshops will create an exposition of youth photos in December. Molly Robbins finished a short promotional video for the Smokey Mountain Juggling Festival, held early in October. Proceeds from the festival purchased much-needed, new juggling materials for our Circus Arts Projects and attracted attention from the International Juggling Federation.

Rotary Avenues of Service

Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self is channeled through five Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of Rotary.

New Generations Service

New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLA, Rotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.

Vocational Service

Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process.

Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

International Service

International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

Club Service

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs.
