NO MORE DRAMA
The Need
 
Parents and care givers with teen girls are far too familiar with the troubling way girls bully each other. Toxic relationships between teen girls disrupt communities and have the potential of creating long term impacts that damage the emotional and social wellbeing of girls. What is needed is programming targeted at reducing and eliminating the ‘drama’ girls experience in their relationships.
 
The Project – a project for women funded by Rotary Women
 
RAP is offering the NO MORE DRAMA project. This important project supports girls (and youth who identify as a girl) to reduce bullying and relational aggression in their relationships. The project provides girls with a safe and supportive environment to help them learn how to have healthy relationships. Ultimately, this project will help young girls to become the best version of themselves.
This is an exciting new project growing directly out of our RAP project.
 
“The Saskatoon Restorative Action Program Inc. (RAP) undertakes a number of projects each year to provide leadership opportunities for youth in our RAP schools.
 
This year, RAP has partnered with the Saskatoon Council on Aging (SCOA) to have students teach seniors how to use technology.
 
The Restorative Action Program (RAP) began as a request from a Saskatoon high school, Mount Royal Collegiate, to one Rotary Club in 2002 to support and work with youth who needed help in addressing issues such as conflict, bullying and crime. Through the leadership exhibited by Rotary, the community gained a new perspective on how to support youth facing these issues. Rotary became the glue that cemented partnerships from the community. These partners helped to create and develop a program that builds social capacity so that all youth experience a better quality of life.
Mexico, as a country, has a poverty rate of approximately 40% or 50 million people. As a result, families struggle to provide food for their children so they cannot afford to have their children go to school beyond the basic primary (primaria) school. Without financial assistance, children often are required to go to work once they have completed grade six to contribute to the family. This fosters a cycle of poverty because children, through necessity, have to work instead of pursuing a higher education to provide them with an opportunity to improve their standard of living.

After close to 40 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.
 

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.
