4-Way Test
Of the things we think, say and do...
 
1.  Is it the truth?
2.  Is it fair to all concerned?
3.  Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4.  Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
 
The Object of Rotary

  • the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to service society;
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

Vocational Service Month

Happy New Year, Rotarians! May the year 2019 be the beginning of the best of our years!

 

January is the Vocational Service Month and so the focus is on how to make our Rotary lives intersect with our professional lives. As Paul Harris was quoted to have said in his autobiography, "Each Rotarian is a connecting link between the idealism of Rotary and his trade or profession."

 

Each of us, as Rotarians, have two obligations:

·         To appropriately represent Rotary to those we deal with in our vocations and activities

·         To represent and share our vocation to our fellow Rotarians

 

The two obligations connect to the Object of Rotary, which is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

 

·         FIRST - The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

·         SECOND - High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

·         THIRD - The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

·         FOURTH - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

 

So as Rotarians, let us put always remember that as we interact between ourselves and as we transact business in our varied vocations.

We Want to Help!

WASRAG has assembled a group of professionals to assist Rotary Clubs with their WASH projects. The team have experience in needs assessment, planning, grant preparation, implementation and WASH training. Members of the Professional Resources Team are from many countries, experienced in working in developing countries and are fluent in a number of languages.

 

If you need help with a project send an email to: info@wasrag.org.  For more details visit http://wasrag.org/page/resources-team

 

$500 for WASH Projects

The WASRAG Board has established a WASRAG Fund to encourage Rotary clubs to undertake water and sanitation projects that are sustainable and well designed.

 

Before a Club submits their Global Grant application to The Rotary Foundation they should send it to the WASRAG Fund review board at info@wasrag.org. WASRAG experts in water and sanitation programs will review the application and make suggestions to improve the quality of the project. Once the suggestions are incorporated into the final application, WASRAG will contribute $500 towards the project.
 

$500 Additional for WinS Projects

The world is fortunate to have Rotary Clubs like Box Hill Central, District 9810, in Australia that are so committed to giving every child the right to an education by providing clean water and sanitation to schools. The "We Can't Wait" NGO that was established by Mark Balla, with the support of the Box Hill Central Club, has agreed to support any WASH in Schools (WinS) project with $500 if it is approved by the WASRAG Fund review committee. That is $1,000 towards your water, sanitation and hygiene project in schools. Get planning. 

 

Send your Global Grant application to info@wasrag.org to apply for both WASRAG Fund and We Can't Wait grants.

Kudos to Rotary for its Fight to End Polio!

A new book has been published in the field of public health highlighting Rotary’s role in the global effort to wipe out polio. It places it in the context of humanity’s relentless struggle to contain the world’s epidemics.  Entitled, “Health of Nations:  The Campaign to End Polio and Eradicate Epidemic Diseases,” the author Karen Bartlett surveys the global landscape of epidemics past, present and future. ”Who decided to rid the world of polio?  Not politicians or global health organizations … process was started by Rotary International, a network more used to enjoying convivial dinners, raising money for local good causes and organizing floats to carry Santa Claus around suburban neighborhoods at Christmas.”  (We have come a long way!)

Presentation for Prospective Members

The new Discover Rotary PowerPoint presentation is now available (see "Site Pages" - "Rotary Resources"). It provides an overview of Rotary, including our values, history, and the benefits of membership. Rotarians can add club-specific images and information to the presentation, which also comes with speaker notes. It can be helpful to anyone holding prospective member events, hosting prospective members at a meeting, or presenting to an audience of community members. Encourage Rotarians to have prospective member and club brochures on hand to distribute after the presentation. Be sure district membership chairs know about the presentation, so they can incorporate it into outreach activities.
