Sustaining the Magic!
Welcome to the New Rotary Year!
It is both an honor and a privilege for me and the dedicated Magic Team to lead our district through the Rotary year 2024-25. Like all of you, I am incredibly excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and the achievements we aim to realize during this special year of the Magic of Rotary.
Building upon the successes of “Creating Hope,” our focus remains steadfast: to ensure the sustained delivery of the Magic of Rotary, not just for the coming year, but for generations to follow. However, it is important to recognize that while it may appear effortless, creating true ‘magic’ in our clubs and in communities requires dedication and concerted effort from all of us.

The Rotary Club of Sonde embarked on a heartwarming initiative today 1st July as one of the Magical Year inaugural activity, taking over St. Charles Lwanga Bukerere Cerebral Palsy School for a day of engagement with the children. This launch marks the beginning of a long-term partnership between RC Sonde and the school, aiming to significantly improve the lives of children with disability in Sonde community.
The school is a learning point for over 35 children with cerebral Palsy, and other forms of disabilities from the communities surrounding the school including Sonde and Bukerere.
Rotarians spent the day with the children through a mix of learning activities, playful interactions, and shared meals, fostering a spirit of connection and joy.
Investing in the Future
The partnership extends far beyond a single day of engagement. The Rotary Club of Sonde has committed to a long-term vision for St. Charles Lwanga Bukerere Cerebral Palsy Center. The club plans to focus on the key areas including
  • Improved Infrastructure: The club has committed to the completion of the school’s classrooms and expansion, ensuring the school has adequate space for learning and development.
  • Specialized Education: The club through the Ministry of Gender, labor and Social Development (Disability) will be supporting the school to access qualified teachers experienced in special needs education.
  • Assistive Devices: The club is also looking for Disability partners to ensure the school accesses essential assistive devices to empower the children and enhance their learning experience.
  • Regular Therapy: Additionally through Ministry of Gender the club has reached out to request for regular therapy sessions for children with cerebral palsy and ensure these crucial interventions are readily available for children who need them.
The club has also donated assorted items including food, toiletries, and beddings worth over two million and seven hundred thousand Uganda shillings among others to boost the school’s food pantry.

Out to Lunch: Why you may consider investing in Rotary

About 15 years or so ago, a friend asked me whether I could help them do some voluntary work. There was somebody visiting Uganda and there could use some of my skills. I was invited for a meeting over lunch at the Grand Imperial Hotel in Kampala.
The meeting turned out to be a lecture of sorts where a speaker on a lectern makes a presentation followed by questions and answers from the plenary. A high table of sorts existed where somebody had a bell and wearing a chain pinned with golden miniature plaques.
Many of the people at the lunch hour event wore suits and all the kind of clothing that is considered acceptable in corporate offices. I could recognize a few public faces — captains of their respective industries.
