For the past 70 years, Rotary and UNESCO
 have been pursuing the same goals around the world. 
Rotary’s relationship with UNESCO dates back to a 
1942 London Rotary Conference 
to promote international cultural and educational exchanges.
Attended by ministers of education and observers
 from around the world, 
it was an inspiration to the creation of UNESCO in 1946.
 Find out more and watch a live broadcast from Rotary Day at UNESCO.


Below are two links to an amazing fund raising venture,
starting in May, by Trish O’Reilly, CEO of AAMIG,
who will be undertaking a 60-day, 
6,600 km ride across America to raise money for Wheelchairs for Kids.

Here are the donations page 
and the Facebook page
Also below  I have added part of an e-mail from 
AAMIG Executive Assistant, Rebecca Hamersley.
Kind regards
Bob Sheridan

Australia-Africa Mining Industry Group


Wheelchairs for Kids has produced more than 30,000 wheelchairs
 since it began as a Rotary project in Perth in 1998.
Every $150 raised gives a child the freedom of mobility and liberates a carer.
Starting in May, Trish O’Reilly, CEO of AAMIG
 will be undertaking a 60-day, 
6,600 km ride across America to raise money for Wheelchairs for Kids.
 I invite you to consider making a donation for this truly inspiring charity
 in response to the efforts of those involved in the TransAmerica Cycle Challenge.
