You can watch them live or whenever you have time for up to three months after the convention ends.

Livestreaming is available in English or Portuguese for $150.

Rotary Club of Como

At our Club meeting 23rd April, we were delighted to have 
Fiona Beermier, CEO and Sakina Bindahneem, 
Coordinator Parenting Line at Ngala.
 In 2015 Como Club established a 5 year MOU with Ngala,
 providing an Education Fund valued at $5,000pa.
 This was reviewed after 3 years, and by mutual agreement 
the funds are now being directed towards staff education
 and development for the very important revamped Parenting Line (PL). 
This was previously dedicated to supporting families
 of children up to 6yrs, and has been transformed into
 now supporting families with babies and children of all ages up to adult age. 
In the last 12 months 14,448 families received phone support.
 This requires significant staff education in response
 to the much wider family age group.
 Sakina provided an indepth explanation of the operation
 of the PL. Fiona gave a broad overview of the challenges Ngala face
 and the strategies developed to ensure they remain highly respected provider 
of services to families raising children.
Rotary Club of Como is a proud Community Partner with Ngala.
