President Gary Huang's inspiring theme "Light Up Rotary" will motivate all Rotarians to seek new goals and greater achievements in this new Rotary year.  Rotarian Action Groups have been endorsed as a significant resource for humanitarian projects and programs.  WASRAG, founded in 2007, has focused on WASH (water, sanitation, hygiene) as the core element of all the Areas of Focus – providing clean water is the key to fighting disease, alleviating hunger and malnutrition, improving maternal and child health, enhancing literacy, reducing conflict and growing local economies.

Objective:  Provision of a source of electricity for a medical clinic in a remote village

For the past several years, he has returned twice a year to Rwoga, at his own expense, to work with a citizens’ group dedicated to peace building through education and the development of a better quality of life for the new generation.
 
 
 

Relationship, Relationship, Relationship

Like the real-estate phrase, "location, location, location" marketing's phrase "relationship, relationship, relationship" distils a time-honored truth.
 
Former District PR chair Chris Cochrane puts it this way: "The only proven way to get free media coverage in a large city is to make a friend of the editor(s) and owners." He suggests that clubs invite the owner and/or editor of a media outlet to speak to their club. "Treat the invitee like gold and constantly keep that person in the loop. Perhaps invite the owner to join the club after a successful talk." Chris advises.
