Theme: FIELD PROJECTS AND THEIR SUPPORT:
1) Project presentation: There will be both an overview of Rose Charities (and linking organization) projects worldwide, with updates from some of the specific project organizers. Focus will be on the successful ‘project/group coordination’s within the network ie Rose Sri Lanka and the Rose Vancouver Sri Lanka group; Rose Cambodia Sight Centre and Rose NZ and Canada, Stand Tall education project and network in Vancouver etc. These ‘linked relationships’ have proven to be the most successful for development and maintenance of effective field projects.
Questions and discussion will depend on how long time permits.
2) Project support/Fund raising: Projects need both good field planning with implementation but equally importantly, support. This include expertise, human energy and communications, as well as material and financial. The last depends on fund-raising. Rose Charities as a network has now gained considerable experience in fund-raising having hosted many events ranging from quiz-night, to fashion or photographic shows, to music, dinners, sports etc. Strategies will be discussed in the light of the progress made to date.
Refreshments: There will be light food, including sushi, and tea/coffee.
Time: The meeting will be open from 6.15pm to 9pm.
