WCS Supports Nairobi, Kenya Water Project
Our World Community Service Committee recently donated $500 to complete the funding needed for a WASH sanitation extension project in Nairobi, Kenya at the Kirkau Primary School.  Our club contributed to a 2018 WASH sanitation project there and they are now going to build a higher water tank to allow for further coverage of the area. The new higher tank will be placed at a communal water selling point in order to serve Water Bowsers (Vehicular Tanks) who need to pick large volumes in a short time. The plan is to sell about 50 cubic meters per week to these level of customers who in turn deliver to households that are 2 to 5 km from Kirkau.  This will greatly expand the coverage of potable water available for this area.  This will allow providing about 360 additional persons with 20 liters of water per day, the minimum standard set by WHO. The entire system is managed by a water committee and payments for water by users fully covers all operating costs of the system with a reserve for repairs and maintenance.
The primary funding club is the Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs, CO.  
RYLA - Call for Counselors and Students
Past President Lucie Osborn has been a RYLA Senior Counselor for several years and gave us an update on RYLA.
RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) is a life-changing leadership training program where young people learn, develop, and enhance leadership skills and principles in an atmosphere of trust and respect. RYLA encourages and assists current and potential youth leaders in methods of responsible and effective leadership. Many past RYLArians claim, “It was the best week of my life!”
RYLA is back after a 2 year pause because of COVID with an exceptional opportunity for volunteers.  Promote RYLA with young people. Students in their sophomore, junior and senior year of high school are eligible to apply.  Seniors are eligible due to break from COVID.
Important - everyone must be vaccinated. 
Dates – For Senior Counselors July 16 to July 22  (Training will be the last Saturday in June or first one in July)
              For Students July 17 to July 22
More information -
RYLA still needs some Senior Counselors (SC).  SCs are Rotarians who are paired with a Junior Counselor (JC) who is someone that has attended RYLA as a high school student.  The JCs run the groups and the SCs are there for support and safety.  A week as an SC is an amazing experience.  Not only do you get to know Rotarians from District 5440 and 5450 but also get to watch the attendees develop and grow within a short period of time.  RYLA has exceptional and inspirational speakers as well as activities for the team to conquer – or not.  If you are interested in applying scroll down to the For Rotarians Only area on the website and submit an application.  If you have questions please contact Lucie at 307.421.6949 or  You will not be disappointed. 
If you know of a student who would benefit from attending RYLA please encourage them to apply.  Applications are open and available on the website. 
Thank you for considering RYLA.

World Immunization Week April 24 - 30
Join us for World Immunization Week
World Immunization Week 2022Visit
Join with Rotary to promote the power of vaccines to protect children and save lives
During World Immunization Week, 24-30 April, let’s advocate for polio eradication and the importance of vaccines to the health and well-being of our communities.

Vaccines are one of the greatest advances of modern medicine. They’re safe, effective, and save millions of lives each year. Our progress in the fight to end polio is proof that vaccines work.

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative estimates that the polio vaccine has saved more than 20 million children around the world from paralysis. We need to continue vaccinating children against polio, because as long as the poliovirus circulates anywhere, it is a threat everywhere.

Here’s how you can support Rotary’s efforts during World Immunization Week:
  • Use the World Immunization Week Toolkit for graphics and sample posts to share on social media with the hashtags #EndPolio and #VaccinesWork.  
  • Donate to PolioPlus to help Rotary and our partners deliver polio vaccines to vulnerable children. Or start an online fundraiser using Raise for Rotary and share it with your friends, colleagues, and family members. All contributions will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Rotary districts can give District Designated Funds (DDF) to PolioPlus to help meet our goal of raising $50 million each year to eradicate polio.
