Jan Pryor an Australian high school teacher was working quietly behind the scenes setting up a Learning Centre for orphaned children in Nepal. This led her to set up the Didi Foundation to empower women by providing the tools, education and encouragement towards self sufficiency. Jan was in Nepal when the earthquake struck bringing widespread devastation and loss of life. She tells us how she survived the ordeal and outlines some of the creative ways she is helping the community to rebuild. Jan is President of the Rotary Club of Northlakes Toukley and Coordinator for the Rotary Australia Worldwide Community Service. An extraordinary woman.
How do you stage a public performance of Christmas Carols in the days of Covid 19? We meet Roseanna Gallo the Musical Director of Carols on the Common, an annual event hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Macquarie Park and North Ryde who explains how they will present the event in 2020, via a curated concert, skilfully put together and accessible from 7 pm, 13 December, on Facebook. A great example of creative thinking at a time when choral singing is restricted by Health orders. We learn who is helping put it together and the charities which will benefit.
