Three Rotary women were recognized on 7 March
 at the World Bank in Washington, D.C., USA,
 for their commitment to improving lives through
 innovative humanitarian projects. 

The celebration, hosted by the World Bank Group Staff Association,
 and sponsored by Rotary International
 and investment firm Oppenheimer & Co.,
 was one of many events held this week 
to mark International Women's Day, which is on 8 March each year.
 It highlighted the positive changes women
 make around the world.
 Annette Dixon, vice president of the World Bank for South Asia, 
moderated the event. 

Dr. Geetha Jayaram, a member of the Rotary Club of Howard West, Maryland, USA,
 addresses mental health issues for poor women in developing countries.

Danielle De La Fuente, a member of the Rotary Club of Coronado Binacional, California, USA,
 shares how her organization, 
The Amal Alliance, empowers refugee children around the world.

Marie-Irène Richmond-Ahoua, past PolioPlus chair for Côte d’Ivoire,
 talks about the strides Africa has made toward becoming polio free

Rotary Club of Karrinyup

Many people, and particularly Rotary Clubs throughout Western Australia,
s major 40th anniversay project, the Earbus,
 which was designed to work in the Kimberley region of our state. 
The purpose built vehicle was completed and handed 
over to the Earbus Foundation in April of 2017.
Up till now it has been hard at work in the Goldfields
 and other areas but, with the Earbus Foundation of WA recruiting for staff 
to attend interviews in Kununurra in the February newsletter, 
plans are now underway for service in the Kimberley 
Region, for which it was designed.

Maybe our friends at Rotary Club of Kununurra Inc. 
can help? Know anyone suitable?
