The Rotary Club of Chatsworth is excited to co-ordinate yet another Rotary exchange student programme. Katharina Meyer is from Bayreuth, a small town in Bavaria and is excited to be in beautiful South Africa as a Rotary exchange student.

She is being hosted by outgoing exchange student, Tihara Moodley and her family. During her stay, Katharina will visit several places in South Africa and will also present talks at the Rotary forum.

Katharina is currently on a trip with the district exchange team to the St Lucia Wetlands. She leaves on September 1, 2018 . Tihara Moodley, the outbound exchange student will be leaving for Germany on December 1, 2018.

Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Exchanges for students (15 to 19-years-old) are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries.

Director for international services, PP Pam Naidoo said that hosting an exchange student can be incredibly rewarding for a family, bringing an international experience directly into their home.

Host families provide room and board and share their lives with exchange students, involving them in family, community, and cultural activities. All host families are screened and trained.

Juggie Naidoo, president of the club said, “The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures. Youth exchange provides thousands of young people with the opportunity to meet people from other lands and to experience their cultures.”
