During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. Through the Foundation (TRF), Rotary clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. Join our speaker PDG Garry Shearer who is the D5040 Foundation Chair.

Rotary Student Exchange Program
In any given year, through Rotary, there are 8,000 full year student exchanges.  As Antonio summed up whilst thanking our speaker Sue Godey, each student is an ambassador for peace.  Student exchange is a life changing experience, more than worth the year a student may have to give up in high school.  What they receive, are lifelong friendships and world understanding.  Sue Godey has been District 5040 Student Exchange Chair for nearly 3 years.  She and her husband Jim, have hosted students and continue to do so as empty nesters.  She suggests that incoming students enjoy homes with families as much as homes with couples and even single parents.  The Rotary Club of Richmond has not had any student exchange students for about 25 years, and Sue hopes that we are willing to enjoy the great feelings of sharing our lives with incoming exchange students.
Healthy Kitchen Challenge
While vacationing in Hong Kong, Becky attended a fun Rotary event. The Rotary e-Club of Tamar (D3450 ) teamed up with The Society of Rehabilitation and Cream Prevention (SRACP) and held a Healthy Kitchen challenge. 10 teams of challengers had to produce 2 delicious healthy dishes using only a small multi-purpose cooker. Their District Governor, Club President, a Dietitian, the restaurant owner and the Official from SRACP were the judges.  The top winners received supermarket gift cards and all participants got to keep the cooker. It was lots of fun.
