Food Plant Solutions Rotarian Action Group
Rotarian Action Groups conduct international service projects that further the Object of Rotary. In February 2011, Rotary International officially recognised the FOOD PLANT SOLUTIONS Rotarian Action Group (RAG). This action group was established to support the Learn◊Grow project.
The Food Plant Solutions RAG was launched by Peter Kyle at the Rotary International Convention in New Orleans on Sunday, 22 May 2011 (a former lead counsel at the World Bank, the Rotary Foundation Trustess recognised Peter's service by naming him to receive the 2009-10 Global Alumni Service to Humanity Award.) The response was excellent and the fact that Food Plant Solutions is an official RAG and has been launched was well understood and has resulted in an immediate increase in respect for the Learn Grow project. Total registrations and RAG memberships approached 300, which means we now have over 1000 Rotarians from more than 40 countries who have registered with us and with whom we are now actively communicating.
The objectives of Food Plant Solutions are to:
- Promote the Learn◊Grow project and its potential to Rotarians, clubs and districts internationally.
- Facilitate the development of Learn◊Grow groups in districts internationally to undertake food plant programs in developing countries of their choosing.
- Promote the incorporation of Learn◊Grow into existing aid projects.
- Develop an internet platform for communication between Learn◊Grow groups to enable them to share information on the programs they are undertaking and the methods being used as well as information on the strategies that have been more or less successful.
- Foster membership of the RAG.
- Ensure the RAG is at all times compliant with RI regulations.
The purpose of the FOOD PLANT SOLUTIONS RAG is to support the development of Learn◊Grow project groups in Rotary districts throughout the world. With support, each project group will undertake its own projects, in its own way, in its chosen country of need.
