 Speaker for January 31st: 
Olga Vashakmadzi represents the Rotary Club Kyiv Business International, which was established in 2020. Olga is one of the founders of the club. Most members are from or connected with international business, ex-pats, and local businesspeople. They have known each other for many years.
After the war started, unfortunately, more than half of the members left the country and the club.  
Today, they can handle small projects like Smart Aid. A small presentation will be shown. 
The club's website is:,ua

Note: Olga's original purpose in visiting us was not to do a presentation but to meet to see how we operate in Canada and have a social afternoon. We asked her to present, and she agreed, which is very good of her on short notice.
