Stay Connected
 
 
Club News
If your Rotary Club is struggling to find a way to stay connected during the Covid-19 pandemic, why not consider meeting online?
 
Our E-Club has been meeting for an hour twice a month online using the Zoom webconferencing system. 
 
It gives our members the chance to see and talk to each other, hear about exciting projects our members are doing, and from guest speakers. 
 
The only requirement is a smart phone, laptop, tablet computer, or desktop computer.  If you currently use any of these to talk to family using any of the services like Skype, you have all the technology you need to participate in an online meeting!  If members don't have any of these, they can still call in to the meeting from a standard telephone and participate (but without the video).
 
Our Club Secretary, David Dean, would be happy to provide a tutorial for anyone in your club to help you understand how to use the Zoom system for your online meetings.  The basic process is similar to GoToMeeting and other services, but we have found Zoom to be the easiest to use for meetings with 50 or fewer people.  Please email David at:  secretary@rotarygreatersydney.org
 
You're also welcome to attend our club's meetings any time. 
 
Staying connected with fellow members is crucial in this stressful time.  We're happy to help you get started in any way we can.
 
 
 
 
Hello friends of KINI
 
It has been quite some time since the last Newsletter but things have been so busy here and my hands were full thus have only now been able to get this to you. 
 
We are needing more sponsors for needy children as we have had to add quite a number for this coming year. With KINI being known far and wide, we have many requests for children to be cared for who are in danger or being taken out of school. Day student fees are as low as $15 per term. Please email me if you have any questions. 
 
Again thank you for supporting KINI these last 7 years and we wish you a blessed Christmas and very prosperous new year.

The Rotary Foundation provides hundreds of grants per year around the world. 
 
A new tool on the Rotary.org website enables members to see the range of grants that have been awarded.
 
Using reports to manage grants
Grants reports are now available to all Rotary members in the Reports area of My Rotary. Encourage your clubs to use them to manage their grants. A guide to these reports shows members how to search for grants by sponsor, participation, location, and more. There’s also a Cadre Member Information report that lists members of The Rotary Foundation Cadre of Technical Advisers who can offer clubs advice on their grant-funded projects.
 
Grant management training materials
Grant management resources are now available in Rotary’s Learning Center. Find courses on making your project sustainable, conducting community assessments, planning effective projects, managing grant finances, qualifying your club for Rotary grants, reporting on grants, and much more. Consider using the online courses as a way for clubs to get qualified for a Rotary Foundation grant. Or combine them with a shorter in-person training that gives members a chance to discuss district requirements and ask questions.
Our member, Dave Rickards provided this photo of an eyesight restoration camp in Ethiopia that he and his DAK Foundation are supporting.
Approximately 1700 people had their eyesight restored in less that a week!
International Service Projects 2019

As the first Australian E Club we have members living in different parts of the world who are running or facilitating meaningful international projects. This makes us unique, with a diverse range of activities touching the lives of people in dozens of countries.
Our club has 11 active RAWCS registered International Projects as well as several new initiatives underway. We have projects specific to: Timor Leste, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo (2), Kenya, Nigeria and Cambodia, together with 3 worldwide projects that have provided assistance in the last year to Fiji, PNG, Kiribati, the Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Thailand in our region and, in Africa, to Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, DRC, Malawi and Sierra Leone.
