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).
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, has been launched and is was well understood has resulted in an immediate increase in respect for the Food Plant Solutions program. Total registrations and RAG memberships approach 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 Food Plant Solutions program and its potential to Rotarians, clubs and districts internationally.
- Facilitate the development of Food Plant Solutions groups in districts internationally to undertake food plant programs in developing countries of their choosing.
- Promote the incorporation of Food Plant Solutions into existing aid projects.
- Develop an internet platform for communication between Food Plant Solution 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 Food Plant Solution program groups in Rotary districts throughout the world. With support, each program group will undertake its own projects, in its own way, in its chosen country of need.
