Maria was searching for a local volunteer opportunity when she came across the Rotary Club Maroubra. Maria works full-time as an operations manager for the beauty industry for the past 15 years. 
However her interests lie in promoting Holistic Health and she runs a small private practice (energy healing and holistic counselling) that supports friends, family and neighbours.  
Maria also has an interest in Mental Health and recently acquired accreditation as a Standard Mental Health First Aider. Maria says she is "really looking forward to becoming an active member of the Rotary Club of Maroubra, to find ways to serve her local community and be an inspiration to her children.
Trying Education in Ghana by Hellen Orr
Hellen started her presentation with a history of Ghana. Ghana is a West African country that has a rich history dating back thousands of years. The earliest known civilization in Ghana was the Kingdom of Ghana, which existed from the 6th to the 13th century AD. This kingdom was a major center of trade in West Africa, and its rulers were wealthy due to their control of gold and salt trade routes.
In the late 15th century, Portuguese explorers arrived in Ghana, and the region became an important centre of the transatlantic slave trade. The British eventually gained control of Ghana in the late 19th century, and in 1957, Ghana became the first country in sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence from British colonial rule.
Ghana has experienced significant political and economic changes since its independence. Today, Ghana is known for its rich cultural heritage, natural resources, and growing economy. The country is a major producer of cocoa, gold, and oil, and its capital city, Accra, is a vibrant centre of art, music, and commerce. Ghana is also home to a number of important historical sites, including the slave castles along the coast and the ancient city of Kumasi.
Hellen has been very involved with her Ghanaian extended family since the untimely passing of her partner. She is now fundraising for three children for their ongoing education and helping the family to start a small business in Ghana.
