On Saturday, August 24th, District 5000 Rotarians came together yet again to donate time and resources to Kahauiki Village, an affordable plantation-style community for homeless families located at the end of the freeway near Sand Island.   A call went out to Rotarians from Past District Governor Nalani Finn and Rotarian Allen Kamemoto for help purchasing "outfitting kits" -- everyday toiletries, such as toilet paper, diswashing liquid, cleaning supplies, etc. -- for 30 new households at Kahauiki.  The RC of Mililani Sunrise and Wahiawa-Waialua donated two kits.  This short video, put togther by Past President Josh Laguana of the RC of Hickam-Pearl Harbor, shows the Rotarians making deliveries, including Lilette Subedi from the Rotary Club of Wahiawa-Waialua, and all, as always, having fun.

Alex Kanamu is serving his second term as president of the Rotary Club of Wahiawa-Waialua, which is even more admirable because he has been a member of the RCWW for only 4 years. Prior to being president, he was the chair of the Membership Committee. He has been a resident of Wahiawa for 29 years and is the owner of Highway Response, a towing company that is family-owned and run.  Alex said that he initially got involved in Rotary because he enjoyed talking to people who had nothing to do with his business. 
 
In addition to his involvement with Rotary, Alex is the co-founder of the Whitmore Economic Development Group (WEDG), a community-based organized to help farmers with their agriculture business.  A little known fact about Alex is that he raises and breeds miniature bulldogs as a hobby. Please visit our regular meetings at noon on Thursdays at Dot's in Wahiawa and meet Alex in person!

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.
