Canadian Film Maker Explores Rotary in Tanzania

  • (This is Interesting GSE Stuff Too!!!)
  • Rotarian Deneka Michaud, 26, is screening her first feature-length documentary about her experience on a Group Study Exchange sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen (Delta), British Columbia, Canada.
  • Along with four other Canadian women, Michaud, a reporter and producer for Canada’s Delta Cable, was selected to travel to Tanzania in the fall of 2007.
  • She brought a camera and other equipment to document the experience. Michaud, who joined the Rotary Club of North Vancouver after she returned from the exchange, says that before the trip, she had a general concept for the film, which features slices of life in Tanzania, images of nature and wildlife, and several Rotary club projects.
  • “But what I didn’t expect was all the incredible people we’d meet.
  • Knowing Canadian Rotarians, I knew that Tanzanian Rotarians would be great people, but when they are embracing you, you really make a connection,” she says.
  • Together, they saw several club projects in action and identified three they felt strongly about supporting: the Ocean Road Cancer Institute and a primary school for deaf and blind children in Dar es Salaam, and the Tusome literacy project in Zanzibar.
