Downtown Auckland Rotary Club working alongside PWC, KPMG, Deloittes, Kotahi and ASB sent 19 young people to this years RYLA programme.  Along with young people from their own companies, they also sponsored applicants from CureKids, World Vision, Ronald McDonald House, Leukemia & Blood Cancer, Auckland Girls Grammar School and the Graeme Dingle Foundation. Downtown member Pam Deal along with husband Alan were this years camp Mum and Dad. Caroline Ash was the recipient of the Graeme Campbell Scholarship, she receives $1000 to use towards further Leadership education.

I am Hannah Sidonie Schwarzmann and I am a Rotary Youth Exchange student in District 9920 in Auckland 2017/18. I was hosted by the Rotary Club of Downtown Auckland.

During my Exchange I lived with several host families and went to St Cuthberts College in Epsom. 

I arrived in New Zealand on the 30th of July 2017. 

At the District Changeover, John Boscawen was awarded the Dr. Catherine Hamlin - Rotarian of the Year award which our own member PDG Colin Nicholas created in 2006. PDG Malini selected John because “he is always very generous with his time and resources when it comes to Rotary… He has also made significant monetary contributions towards a now approved Microfinance global grant in Fiji which will enable small grassroots businesses in the rural areas of Fiji to get off the ground.” It was an extensive process that took a lot of time, perseverance, and collaboration across the clubs of Rotary Club of Suva, Auckland Rotary and Downtown Rotary to raise the NZ$100,000 which will make a big difference to the lives of many families in Fiji.

At the RYLA graduation dinner, Hilary Prior was awarded her third Paul Harris Fellow in recognition for her number of years fantastic service to RYLA. Going well beyond the call of duty to manage the many issues that arise before, during and after the event. A fabulous and highly regarded stalwart of RYLA.  

Congratulations to both John & Hilary for their outstanding leadership & service to the community.


 
Downtown Auckland Rotary members helping with the packing of some Emergency Response Kits (ERK’s).
Rotary ERK’s are intended for use in civil disasters such as cyclones and floods in the Pacific Islands, and in particular, to assist families survive the first days after the disaster until large scale aid reaches them.
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
