Thousands of women across Rotary are working tirelessly 
on behalf of others, touching lives around the world.
 For International Women’s Day, 8 March,
 we profile a few outstanding members
 who are working in child and maternal health,
 economic development, and other humanitarian concerns

Carolyn Jones
Anchorage, Alaska, USA
Rotary Club of Anchorage East

The first woman to serve as a Rotary Foundation trustee,
 Jones has traveled to Russia as a Rotary volunteer five times,
 three of them as a preschool teacher for
 developmentally delayed children in orphanages.
 But her volunteer efforts have taken her elsewhere as well:
 "In the 27 years that I've been a Rotarian,
 I've administered polio drops in India, planted trees in Brazil,
 promoted microcredit in Costa Rica,
 and delivered baby formula in Uganda," Jones says

Fary Moini
San Diego, California, USA
Rotary Club of La Jolla Golden Triangle

Over the last 10 years, Moini has taken 19 trips to Afghanistan 
to work on projects ranging from school construction
 to setting up computer labs.
 Her fellow Rotary members called her "inspirational"
 in her involvement in the building of a school in Jalalabad,
 and in helping to provide neonatal and midwife training
 for medical professionals.

Deepa Willingham
Solvang, California, USA
Rotary Club of Santa Ynez Valley

Willingham is founder and chair of PACE Universal 
(Promise of Assurance to Children Everywhere),
 a nonprofit organization that educates girls in the world's
 poorest areas and works to prevent child trafficking.
 Working with Rotary clubs around the world, 
the center she formed provides education, microloans,
 health care, clean water and sanitation, 
and community infrastructure. 
"Together, we have created a site that is affecting the lives
 of 30,000 to 40,000 people," Willingham says.

Bernadette Blackstock
Franklinville, New Jersey, USA
Rotary Club of Glassboro Sunrise

The CEO of People for People Foundation
, Blackstock helps normally self-sufficient people 
who have fallen on hard times to afford food, clothing, 
rent, utilities, medications, and other life necessities.
 "Since 2003, our foundation has served over 10,000 families,"
 Blackstock says.

Ginger Vann
Baker, Louisiana, USA
Rotary Club of Baker

Vann coordinates a tutoring program for at-risk students. 
With the help of her club, she renovated a derelict school building 
and worked with tutors to reach 50 students a day.
 She's also passionate about workforce development in Baker,
 where well-paying craftsman jobs often go unfilled.
 "We're not going out there and finding just anybody; 
we're targeting the unemployed, underemployed,
 and veterans," Vann says.

79% of Australian Rotary Health's currently-funded researchers are female.
 These women have made wonderful achievements
 in the world of research and beyond.
 For ‪#‎InternationalWomensDay we're celebrating Women in Research!
