Webinar -- Register by clicking https://rotaryshares.org/clubsempowergirls
and Guests will hear about 3 Clubs making a real difference in the lives of
girls. Our first speaker will be Kay Williamson, Founder and Director of Wrap
Around, Rotary Club of Meriwether County as she talks about Period Poverty.
Next, Dan Quinn, Founder of All Study Steps Tutoring, as he shares the amazing
work of a group of 8 rotary clubs in Greensboro, NC that support educational
efforts for children in extreme poverty. Their project partners with an onsite
group in Vietnam, childrenofvietnam.org,
to help girls get their education and graduate from high school. Our last
speaker is John Hewko, General Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of Rotary
International and The Rotary Foundation who will share details on how girls in
Ukraine are being supported.
Why: Equality is a fundamental human
right that’s necessary for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.
Still, girls and women worldwide face inequities in areas including health and
education, and they experience violence and poverty at higher rates than men.
What you will walk away with: Inspiration
and Ideas for Club projects that will support Empowering Girls.
Empowering girls aligns with Rotary’s areas of
focus and the goals of our Action Plan. See details on that here: https://my.rotary.org/en/news-media/office-president/presidential-initiatives.

We can increase our impact through projects that
protect, empower, and create equity for girls. Join us to offer more
opportunities for girls to elevate their voices and articulate their views,
ideas, and opinions.
