Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS By NICOLA WILLIAMS A youth service group has their sights set on contributing to worthy causes. The Rotary club of Somerville Howick has chartered the Elim Christian College Inter- act club, a youth division of the service group. Rotary dignitaries were present as students were inducted into the club that caters for community-minded students aged 14 to 18. The Elim Interact Club will add to the tally of more than 12,600 Interact clubs worldwide in 133 countries. It is in Interact that our youth participate in healthy and constructive activities, learn leader- ship qualities, under- stand group behaviour and appreciate the mu- tual benefits of team work, Rotarian Philly Karani says. They learn to discuss problems to find out what is right rather than who is right and of course in the process have a lot of fun and make many new friends. Interact president Stacey Pretorious says the group has organised two fundraising events this year and more are in the pipeline. Our goal is to grow as leaders, to gain under- standing of other count- ries and international causes and to raise awareness of issues, the year 12 student says. Stacey says the club has about 12 committed members with other students who help out with events. The club benefits members as well as the people they help. It grows your skills, especially as president you become more confi- dent, she says. Of the two main annual projects one is international and one is local. The club discusses which causes to support. We decide whether the best way to help is through money or put- ting our time and love in the community, Stacey says. Vice-president Alistair Dumper says he plans to join Rotaract at Univer- sity next year which caters for 18 to 30-year- olds. Parade against violence More than 200 motor- cycle enthusiasts will make a stand against violence towards wo- men. The White Ribbon day rally is on Novem- ber 25 from noon to 2pm at Manukau Square. White Ribbon day riders will be joined by local men and celebrities for a parade around the Westfield Manukau Shopping Centre. There will be a free sausage sizzle, give- aways and entertain- ment. Wearing a white rib- bon is a symbol that you do not tolerate viol- ence against women. White Ribbon t-shirts being sold through the Eastern Women s Refuge office with the statement, I m against violence to- wards women. T-shirts cost $25 and are in a range of sizes for men and women. Photos are available on their Facebook page -- search Eastern Ref- uge.
