Dryden’s International Committee, consisting of James Kroeker (chair), Cindy Palermo, and John Borst, presented to DG Gailmarie’s District 5550’s monthly “DG’s Talk” on the Amarok Society’s “mother’s schools” in the slums of Bangladesh.

The evening began with a short talk by John Townsend on the work of the Rotary Action Group for Reproductive, Maternal and Child Health.  This was followed by a presentation by Jennifer Peterson from North East Outreach and Support Services (NEOSS), a Saskatchewan government-supported social service agency related to Maternal, Infant and Child Health.

Next, the Dryden club, along with Chadine Majhi of the University of Manitoba Rotaract Club, made their presentation. Using four brief PowerPoint presentations, the Dryden Rotarians shared their personal stories about how they became involved in the schools and what they want to accomplish over the next few years.
