District Rotaract Representative November Message

story thumbnail

“The Rotary Foundation is not to build monuments of brick and stone. If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work on brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, if we imbue them with the meaning of the spirit of Rotary. We are engraving on those tablets something that will brighten all eternity." - Arch C. Klumph - 1929.

As I look forward to an exciting month, I am not indifferent to the multiple challenges Rotaractors & Rotarians are facing in our district and the country in general.

I know that we are still covering our faces with masks in protection against Covid-19 that has ravaged the entire world and changed our lives to a new normal. But as people of action we quickly re-strategized and turned what would have been a major disaster to an advantage of sort. Where there is despair Rotaractors and Rotarians can only see opportunities to make people happy. For this singular act may I toast to better opportunities this new month.

The month of November is a giving month for us with series of opportunities to express our ability to give to people of the world and celebrate the month dedicated to our great Rotary Foundation.

Some FAQs

What is the Application process? Applications are either systems generated or by written application. For system generated awards like membership, TRF, Rotary/Rotaract/Interact Club of the Year, clubs are not required to apply and winners will be determined based on data from My Rotary and D9213 portal.  For other awards where a written application is required clubs will make a formal application with a cover letter signed by the Club President and written evidence to support their application for a given award clearly referencing the evaluation criteria provided in the announcement.

When are applications open? Applications requiring written submissions are now open for clubs to participate and close on 31 March 2022.

I congratulate you, fellow Rotarians, on completion of the first quarter of RY2021-22. It has been a learning experience, but also gratifying for me on my official visits to clubs. I have experienced amazing projects that change lives in our communities, the joy of inducting new members, and celebration for Rotarians recognized for the generous gifts to the Rotary Foundation.  My gratitude to Change Maker Presidents, Assistant Governors and Area Support officers who have contributed to the attainment of these accomplishments. In the remaining nine months ahead of us, I encourage each one of you to Do More and Grow More as we lay a firm foundation for D9213. I implore you to keep up the positive energy that you have so far exhibited, as you work towards accomplishing your goals.  

 
I further congratulate you on successfully hosting the Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta and First Lady Rashi. I remain indebted to the Chairs of the projects that showcased activities namely Sam Owori Rotary Vijana Poa Village, RI - USAID WASH Program, Rotary Centenary Bank Cancer Center, Maternal and Child Health Program, Empower Girls Initiative, Rotary Mengo Hospital Blood Bank, and Rotary Peace Center-Makerere University. I applaud the efforts of the Rotary and Rotaract Clubs that admitted 140 and 115 new members respectively; and the Rotarians and Rotaractors that were recognized for generous gifts to the Rotary Foundation. I am also indebted to the generosity of Indian Association and Ruparelia Group for the warm reception to President Shekhar. I appreciate the Organizing Committee led by PDG Robert Waggwa Nsibirwa for the unrivalled team spirit, passion, and talent that made the visit of the RI President a memorable one.
