Every year our donations to The Rotary Foundation pay for the brightest young people we can find - from across the globe - to come to a local university to pursue postgraduate research into finding solutions for the world's most pressing issues. These concern the global causes which all Rotarians like to support:
• promoting peace,
• fighting disease,
• providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene,
• saving mothers and children,
• supporting education,
• growing local economies and
• saving the environment.
Tonight will be your chance to meet some of these intriguing people. Five Rotary Scholars will be there at our hybrid meeting (on Zoom or in person) to tell us about their research, their work and to answer your questions. It should be a truly fascinating experience. Email email@example.com to secure your place and a Zoom link if you wish to attend online.
