Scottsdale’s Police Chief Alan G Rodbell was keynote speaker at that meeting.  Mr. Hashim, left the next day to travel to and attend the 106th Rotary International Convention held in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The RI International Convention is the best opportunity for attendees to meet people of different cultures and ethnicities and to form partnerships for Rotary global projects.

While visiting the Rotary Club of Scottsdale,  Mr. Hashim discussed a potential global project partnership between his Rotary Club in Sri Lanka and the Rotary Club of Scottsdale.

The Rotary clubs plan to explore water projects that would share a sustainable and simple technology to provide clean water in areas where this is a challenge.
