Fighting to Save Children in Africa
by Raga S. Elim, Ph.D., Chairman, Capital District Committee on International Understanding

Thank you very much for your generous response to the Initiative for Africa project. Despite the national financial crisis, in only two months we have received total donations of nearly $5,000 toward the goal of $25,000. If you work and your employer makes matching donations, please arrange a matching contribution for our initiative. Again, thank you my Kiwanian colleagues for supporting this noble project. Happy New Year to you all.

Personally, I believe the only obstacles to Kiwanis success are unsuccessful attitudes and the belief that our challenges are somebody else's responsibility to overcome. We have no shortage of people willing to offer great ideas to overcome our obstacles, but when asked to step up and help implement them, they become silent rather quickly...more
