SANJ SRIKANTHAN, CEO OF SHELTERBOX
DECEMBER 3RD - 9:00 - 10:30 AM PDT
The Rotary Club for Global Action is thrilled to welcome Sanj Srikanthan, the CEO of ShelterBox. Sanj will be discussing disaster relief in the face of man made and natural disasters across the globe. Learn about the unique partnership between Rotary and ShelterBox, and how they are able to often be first responders to global conflicts and disasters.
Before joining the ShelterBox Team in December 2019, he worked at the International Rescue Committee for 10 years where he progressed to Senior Vice President for Europe and Executive Director for the UK. He was voted as one of the London Evening Standard’s ‘changemakers’ for 2018.
Sanj has been leading teams in adversity over the last two decades; from peacekeeping operations on the Iran-Iraq border, to responding to Ebola outbreaks in Liberia.
During his career, Sanj has had significant first-hand experience of humanitarian work. In a previous role at IRC, he worked as an Emergency Field Director, leading response teams supporting communities in many countries including Mali, South Sudan, Syria, Lebanon and Turkey. Prior to working at the IRC, Sanj transitioned from a career as a Captain in the British Army serving in Iraq. His experiences there influenced his decision to become a humanitarian worker.
This conversation will be moderated by Brian Rusch and will include the opportunity for a robust Q&A. This event is free and open to Rotarians, friends, and anyone who might be interested in the topic.
RCGA ANNUAL NEW YEAR'S DAY GLOBAL CLEANUP
JANUARY 1, 2023
The Rotary Club for Global Action is gearing up for another global cleanup and we want YOU to join us! Every New Year's Day, we launched a simple project - bring Rotary members and friends out into their communities to participate in a global cleanup.
Last year we collected over a ton of garbage on four continents. We already know that we will have cleanups in Australia, the UK, Spain, Kenya, South Africa, India, Canada Brazil and all over the USA. And we want you to join us! Commit to putting together a group or join one that is already formed. Be sure to let us know where you are going to be and to use the CleanSwell App so we can track our progress. Also be sure to take photos and videos so we can show that Rotarians really care about taking care of the Earth and each other!
