Why?
Why?

Kathryn R. Kest has been in Toastmasters since 2010.  In addition to her certification as a Project Management Professional, and a Grateful Leadership Trainer, Kathy has achieved 2 Distinguished Toastmaster Awards. 

She serves as the District 56 Director which has over 5,000 members in the Greater Houston area.  Like Rotary, Toastmasters International is a global community, with a presence in 143 countries, boasting 348,000 members. 

Kathy has served in leadership roles in TI District 56 for the past six years.  TI focuses on personal leadership and communication skill development.  The plan is for the alliance between Rotary and Toastmasters to provide new opportunities to apply these skills, make new connections, and contribute to our communities. 

We invite Rotary members to attend local club meetings, practice speeches and presentations as well as take advantage of the 8 new courses being developed by TI to provide in-depth leadership and communication structure.  We expect these courses to roll out by the end of 2020.

Today Kathryn will be sharing heartwarming stories of her personal journey and how she accidentally became a leader.  The title of her presentation is “Why”.

Food Waste

To be confirmed.

Second Servings is Houston’s only prepared and perishable food rescue organization. With 16% of the Houston community facing food insecurity and nearly 40% of the available food supply wasted, Second Servings is on a mission to alleviate hunger and reduce waste by rescuing surplus food from businesses and conducting free, same-day delivery to over 90 Houston-area shelters, soup kitchens, low-income housing and other nonprofits. Charity recipients receive upscale, chef-prepared banquet meals, fresh produce, meat and dairy products, grab ‘n go items, gourmet cupcakes, freshly baked artisan bread, healthy snacks and much more from over 250 food donors across the city. This food helps nourish abused women and children, at-risk youth, veterans, adults in recovery, disabled homeless seniors, low-income single adults and families and many others. Since the organization began operations in 2015, Second Servings of Houston has rescued and delivered over 3 million pounds of food, valued at more than $20 million, to Houstonians in need.

Sanitation and Hygiene
Sanitation and Hygiene

My long term goal is to create worldwide incentives for water reuse both in domestic and industrial scales by supporting water treatment and energy projects that are sustainable and allow the conservation of our world water sources.

For more than a decade, I have been involved in project planning and management of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WaSH) programs around the world. In 2019, I founded Global WaSH to form a network of people that can support international development projects and create a center of expertise in WaSH.
