We are delighted to welcome the visiting Group Study Exchange (GSE) team from Rotary District 7030 - the Islands of the Eastern Caribbean.
The GSE scheme forms part of Rotary’s Foundation charity and offers a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for young business and professional men and women between the ages of 25 and 40. During the four weeks of their visit team leader Rotarian Sammy Wyke and the members of his team Zilma Charles, Songee Branch, Rosy Locatin-Cimbert and Dominic Matthew will have the opportunity to study Midlands institutions and our way of life, to observe how their own vocations are practiced here, to develop personal and professional relationships, and to exchange ideas.
By providing an opportunity for participants to broaden their cultural perspective and understanding of a nation’s history, language, commerce, and government the GSE programme is designed to enhance the international perspective of the next generation of young leaders and to promote tolerance and collaboration with professional people of other cultures.
It’s a gruelling schedule for Sammy and his team but we hope that as well as being informative it will also prove to be enjoyable for them and that they take back fond memories of their time with us.
Thanks go to David Cave and the members of the Foundation committee who have worked so hard to make this visit a success and to Chris Kraushar who has generously acted as a home host for a member of the visiting team whilst they are in the Southern Area.
