Cookbook distribution is almost all over the planet (Australia, USA, UK, Canada, Germany) thanks to efforts of  our club members, rotarians and friends.

Gabe: Voice of Rotary: There’s so much of Rotary around! Not only in the social network, but a lot more intertwined into the everyday lives of many nations. November is Rotary Foundation month.  The Rotary Foundation (TRF) is the engine underpinning the whole Rotary charity network in all 6 of its focus areas.  The fuel for this engine is EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year). RCBUS has collected USD 20,417 for the EREY in its first 3 ½ years, and has gotten back in all forms of grants for projects USD 199,767.

Global Grant: Final training was conducted on Saturday November 12. Sue received a report from the Dyatmika teachers on the result of the teacher training. Pictures will be coming on the web site.

Cultural Presentations:  Rucina announced the next cultural presentation on Nov 21, by Garrett Kam.  Garrett will be speaking about the special days that are occurring in the next two weeks:  Saraswati, in honor of the Goddess of Literature and  Tumpek Landep, which honors things made out of metal.

Raffle: Congratulations to winner Mary Jane!

Guest Speaker: Pande Putu Setiawan

In 2006, Pande started the Anak Alam Community because he wanted to do something for his own community. Even though he graduated university with an International Business Masters degree, he is committed to helping his community and giving children a chance for education.

His latest project is www.1camera1000smiles.com, where children use donated cameras to capture their own lives.  Working with Australian photographer volunteer Richard, one of the students in this project, 15 year old Kliwon, will present his own photography exhibition in Jakarta next month.
