Our member Rotarian Salem Tesfalul with the three nurses receiving midwifery training in Australia, presenting at the Mandurah District Rotary club on the Ghawa program. They were flanked by the three past District Governers of Mandurah District.
A member of our club, Rotarian Robina Namusisi donated a laptop earlier last week to Chelangat who is studying law at Uganda Christian University as a way to help her accomplish her studies.
 
Chelangat who was brought to our attention by DG Kenneth during his visit to our club helped out during the late Rtn Sam Owori's funeral without knowing who he was. She truly embodies the Rotary motto of "Service above self" and in return, we were honored to help her out.
 
We wish her nothing but the best!
 
 
 
 
 
Greetings Fellow Rotarians of D9211 as we start a new Rotary year.  
Rotary International President (2016-17) John Germ’s theme Rotary Serving Humanity gets back to the basics of Rotary.  He said in his address to the incoming Governors that we all have been given a great opportunity – the opportunity to go and serve our communities and to make them better.  And that is the basis of being a Rotarian – to Serve above Self.
 
The 2016-17 Rotary year is also a very special year for us – we will be celebrating the Centennial of the formation of The Rotary Foundation.  The then president of RI, Arch Klumph, came up with an idea of starting an endowment to do good in the world.  From that $26.50 starting donation from a club, our foundation has now grown to just under $1 Billion.
 
And, therefore, our main focus in the coming year will be on the Foundation.  We will support the Foundation not just by giving but by utilizing it as well in the form of Grants.  On the giving side, we will look not only at increasing our regular giving but also other ways like promoting the Bequest Society, Paul Harris Society, etc.  We also need to make sure that every single Rotarian in our district contributes something – even if it is $5 – to the Foundation.  At present, 44% of Rotarians in our district have not contributed at all to the Foundation.
Therefore, our first focus will be the Foundation for the coming year.  But to enable us to do this, we will need to look at our Membership – both in terms of new recruitment as well as, and even more so, retention.  Over the past few years, we have lost nearly 70% of those we had recruited within 2 years.  We need to ask ourselves – why are we losing these members?  Is it because we did not target the right people or is it because we are not giving them value for their time and money?  
 
So to support our Foundation, we need to retain our members as well as recruit new ones to grow.  In order to do this, we need to build our Brand of Rotary.  We need to make Rotary visible and well known in our communities.  Too often we do great work in our communities and then keep quiet about it.  We need to showcase our achievements and make them widely known.  Rotary should become a brand that would make people want to aspire to be associated with.
Therefore, as we build our Brand of Rotary, we will retain and attract new members and this will enable us to support our Foundation better. 
 
I look forward to working with you all in the coming year to serve humanity.
 

Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.

Germ unveiled the 2016-17 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, to incoming district governors on 18 January at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.

“I believe everyone recognizes the opportunity to serve Rotary for what it truly is: not a small opportunity, but a great one; an opportunity of a lifetime to change the world for the better, forever through Rotary’s service to humanity,” said Germ.

Rotary members around the globe are serving humanity by providing clean water to underdeveloped communities, promoting peace in conflict areas, and strengthening communities through basic education and literacy. But none more important than our work to eradicate polio worldwide, he said.

After a historic year in which transmission of the wild poliovirus was stopped in Nigeria and all of Africa, Germ said we are closer than ever to ending polio.

“We are at a crossroads in Rotary,” he added. “We are looking ahead at a year that may one day be known as the greatest year in Rotary’s history: the year that sees the world’s last case of polio.”

Last year’s milestones leave just two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, where the virus still circulates. Polio would be only the second human disease ever to be eradicated.

When that moment arrives, it’s “tremendously important” that Rotary is ready for it, said Germ. “We need to be sure that we are recognized for that success, and leverage that success into more partnerships, greater growth, and even more ambitious service in the decades to come.”

Germ, a member of the Rotary Club of Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, encouraged attendees to return to their clubs and communities and spread the word about Rotary’s role in the fight for a polio-free world.

“People who want to do good will see that Rotary is a place where they can change the world. Every Rotary club needs to be ready to give them that opportunity,” Germ said.

Enhancing Rotary’s image isn’t the only way to boost membership. “We need clubs that are flexible, so our service will be more attractive to younger members, recent retirees, and working people.”

He added: “We need more willing hands, more caring hearts, and more bright minds to move our work forward.”
