"Saving Smiles... Changing Lives, Our Rotaplast Mission to India" Roger & Paulette Schulte
Each year thousands of children are born with cleft lip and cleft palette anomalies. In some areas of the world treatment is not common. Untreated, these children are ridiculed, rejected from society, and often deprived of an education. They are prone to serious upper respiratory problems, hearing loss, speech and dental problems. Rotaplast works locally to educate families and communities and to provide free operations and therapeutic follow-up care for patients.      On Wednesday, July 30th former District Governor (2010-11) Roger Schulte and his wife, Paulette, will share their experiences as non-medical volunteers in Delhi, India with Rotaplast, International. They will detail how 90 minutes changed the life of a child with a cleft lip and palate and her family forever.   Roger holds an undergraduate degree from the University of California at Davis and an MA in education from Stanford University. Before retiring in 2006, his career spanned 40 years in California public education, first as an English/drama teacher and then as a school administrator..   On November 2007, Roger met Paulette while on an Upland Chamber of Commerce trip to China. During his year as district governor they were married on December 18, 2010, and honeymooned in Paris over Christmas. Paulette is a retired director for the Cardio-vascular Research Institute at the University of California San Francisco   Roger joined Rotary in 1978, was president of the Rotary Club of Upland in 1984-85 and served as District 5300's governor in 2010-11. Roger and Paulette are multiple Paul Harris Fellows, Rotary Foundation Benefactors, and Bequest Society Members. Roger has personally participated in Rotary's effort to eradicate polio in the Uttar Pradesh region of India. In the spring of 2010 he traveled to Peru as a non-medical volunteer on a Rotaplast. He and Paulette have delivered wheelchairs in Hermosillo, Mexico, and annually participate in the District's SuperBuild outside of Tecate, Mexico.   Retired, their passion is to use their skills and talents to serve humanity through Rotary.
