Talk & Tour at American Refugee Committee exclusive for Rotarians of D5950 and D5960
In June of 2016, the Roseville RC, Kiwatule RC (Uganda) and American Refugee Committee (ARC) partnered to start the world’s first Rotaract Club in a refugee camp - the Nakivale Rotaract Club in Nakivale Refugee Settlement, Uganda.  D5950 worked with the Nakivale Rotaract Club on the creation of a new sewing center.  With the energy and success of Nakivale, there is a growing momentum to build on the collaboration between ARC and Rotary to be able to develop more Rotaract Clubs in refugee camps throughout the world.  RI President Barry's #1 goal for 2018-2019 is to double Rotaract clubs in the world.  
ARC is inviting us to their Minneapolis headquarters for a private Rotary tour and talk!  ARC President Daniel Wordsworth will host this in-depth look at the organization and update on the Rotaract Club of Nakivale Refugee Settlement.  Plus, you’ll be one of the first to hear about exciting opportunities that may  be possible between ARC and Rotary!  Things will kick off at 5:30PM, and the program will begin at 6PM.  Appetizers and drinks are hosted by ARC and it’s free to attend, but we ask that you register so we can give an appropriate count.
Questions?  Please reach out to Amanda Ottman – or 612-607-6496.
