Rtn. PP Ajay said that sustainability was always an issue for Rotaract and Interact clubs. He said RCPC had made great efforts in the past to integrate Rotaract and Interact clubs but their goals were different. 8. Rtn. Dr Saroj reported that the Ashray Foundation’s Menstrual Health awareness program was under way. For the HPV vaccine campaign for prevention of cervical cancer, she said that the need was to create awareness amongst parents, and then get them to sign a consent form agreeing to administering two doses of the vaccine to their daughters. 9. In his update on Global Grants, Rtn. PP Ravi said that closure reports had been accepted on all but one project. The GG for pan-India cataract surgery has been provisionally approved. Pediatric surgery and Green PC projects were also in the pipeline. ITC had requested further documentation before committing to various Rotary projects. 10. Rtn. Giri Sakhrani reported that the restoration of a 300-metre dam in Rajapur village in Satara District was progressing well.
