Creating awareness about Hifadhi Africa Org. partnership
projects with Rotary Foundation. — at Rotary International
Convention 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.
 
Our own Rotarian Bob Cairns attended the RI convention in Atlanta. The Port Orchard Rotary Club was the only club in District 5020 to have a booth at the Convention and to do a breakout session.  Manning the booth prohibited attendance at most of the Convention events but was still worthwhile.  New networks were formed along with potential new funding partners.  The breakout session on Partnering between Rotary and the Young African Leaders Initiative(YALI) was well received.  Britta Bjornlund, the US State Department, Mesfin Bezuneh, Clark University, Atlanta and Collins Nakedi/Charles Mwakio participated in the panel.
