Rotary is now holding “hybrid” meetings where you may choose between in-person participation at the Hotel Real de Minas or ZOOM
On September 14, 2021, Irene Fuentes, the Executive Director of Ojala Niños, A.C. will share with the Mid-Day Rotary Club of San Miguel, the strategies and techniques that this organization uses to educate and entertain children while enriching their psychological and moral development. Irene is a specialist in Social Responsibility and Children’s Rights and received her Master’s Degree in Social Responsibility from Mexico City’s Anahuac University. The Chairman of the Board of Directors, Norman Briere, will also join the presentation and discuss the organization’s vision for the future.
As Irene recently wrote in a promotional mail list, “the way time is used is a very important factor for happiness. Having a life full of meaningful activities does make a big difference in people’s happiness, activities such as spending quality time with family and friends, taking actions to help others or contributing to momentous causes.” In her writings, Irene is expressing the mutual benefit received not just by the children who have a chance to gather together to perform quality activities but to those who donate resources for these programs.”
Ojala Niños has a laudable history. Elsemarie Norby, the program’s founder, worked tirelessly for years to develop the program and noted that due to the pandemic, the program suffered shut-downs in so many ways, and is now undergoing transformations for the ongoing growth of the program.
Go to www.rotary.smamidday.org to sign up to join the meeting by Zoom or to determine whether it may be possible for a small quantity of in-person participants to join a limited population in person.
Rotary is where neighbors, friends and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change. For more information, contact President Skip Essick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
