Have Fun While Serving Communities With Aloha

President’s Message
March 13, 2023
This has been a very active Rotary year so far. Not only for the number and quality of the activities in our own club, but also in collaborating with other Rotary Clubs and organizations of Maui. 
Some of our work includes:
     - Water safety with our ongoing commitment to Rescue Tubes on the beaches of South Maui.
     - Youth: services with scholarships, school supply drives, middle school leadership academies, reading tutoring, supplying dictionaries
     - Health: promotion, wellness and health education
     - Our environment: cleaning up beaches, and planting trees and maintaining school gardens
We work with many community partners and individuals who all embrace “Service Above Self” for community benefit.  Currently, we are doing a food drive along with Coldwell Banker to benefit the Maui Food Bank. In the next few weeks there will be a beach cleanup. 
Please join us in this common cause. “Together We

We train 3 Orthopedic surgeons in the Pediatric sub-specialty who will start their own training site
Initiated by Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Barry from Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea (RCKW) on Maui. RCKW has partnered with RC Honolulu Sunrise, District 5000 and the Rotary Foundation to support this unique surgeon training initiative at Muhimbili Orthopaedic Institute (MOI) in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The host is Rotary Club of Oyster Bay in Dar Es Salaam. A Vocational Training Team (VTT) Grant was secured to sequentially bring five Pediatric Orthopedic surgeons from the United States for 3-4 weeks at a time to train 3 top local MOI surgeons in the sub-specialty of Children’s Orthopedics. This is the 5 month final stretch of a 2 year formal fellowship training program at MOI. Upon completion, these will be the only formally trained Pediatric Orthopedic surgeons in Tanzania, a country of 55 million, where half the population is below 18 years of age. The fellows plan to establish the first permanent “Center of Training Excellence” in Pediatric Orthopedics in east, central and southern Africa.
