RI President's Window

Rotary President Ron Burton spoke today to Rotary E-Club Francophone through GoToMeeting, using technology to reach as many ‪#‎Rotary‬ members as he can.

E-clubs are blazing a trail and can be a tremendous opportunity to meet people from around the world, the president said. He encouraged e-clubs -- as well as all clubs worldwide -- to ask Rotaractors to join.

Rotary Heroes of Nelson Mandela Bay - Tamika Doubell writes about the Rotary Family Health Days in SA

I am proud to be associated with Rotary International through my involvement with projects of The Rotary Club of Algoa Bay in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa. Recently Rotary initiated 3 days of free healthcare to communities across the country in their fantastic “Rotary Health Days” initiative. I covered all the social media PR & marketing for the Eastern Province, focusing on the sites in Port Elizabeth at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium and in Uitenhage at the Volkswagen sponsored Love Life Youth Centre in Kwanobuhle. Please see our awesome album of the Rotary Family Health Days here. I was so honoured to receive active support and involvement from the Rotary Headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, via their official instagram feed here and their Facebook page here. Rotary clubs are all over the world. They bring together leaders to exchange ideas and take action to help empower youth, enhance health, promote peace, and eradicate polio......

Rotaract Clubs in Egypt bring polio vaccine to slums of Alexandria

Operating by the creed “Good Mind in Good Body” and “Today’s children are tomorrow's men and women,” Rotaract Club Alexandria-Marine took part in National Immunization Day in Egypt, from November 17-20, 2013.

Weeks before the National Immunization Day, five Rotaract Clubs in Alexandria coordinated efforts and met with local health authorities to plan for immunization locations, supply of vaccine fridges, catering plans, poster production, and loudspeaker procurement. We packed 800 meals for vaccination teams as well as biscuits and juice for children. The clubs advertised with posters in many slums that may have never been touched by Rotary International, CDC, UNICEF, or WHO.

We began the awareness campaign began by educating illiterate mothers about why they must vaccinate their children against polio and Rotary's role in the fighting this crippling disease. During the National Immunization Day, we were able to vaccinate kids in six slum areas around Alexandria.

When clinics did not have roofs or seats, we provided them. When vaccination teams became hungry, Rotarian family members delivered meals. Rotary member Omaima Elsheikh said, “I feel that mission possible was completed because of early planning and enthusiasm of Rotarians to show that they care about community needs, at time of need. We believe in what Rotary is doing for humanity - vaccinating children against resurgence of polio again in Egypt which is surrounded by hot spots in Syria, Somalia and elsewhere. I look forward to more Rotary community service projects in Alexandria. My goal is to keep providing to Alexandria through Rotary.”

Membership tools you can use

Sometimes you do not have to climb over the fence or scale a wall. All you have to do is stand on your toes and peek over the top to get a new view of things.

While attending a conference in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA, for Rotary Zones 24 and 32 this past September, this thought came to my mind. “They can’t see over the fence.” Many of the district membership leaders were expressing all the challenges they have with membership growth and retention despite all their efforts.

Bring them in, keep them

Rotary, as many of us know, has had a large turnover in members during the past decade.....

Rotary, a matter of the heart

Six years ago, I agreed to serve on my district’s scholarship committee. I now have many fond memories of helping 12 students attain fully subsidized Rotary International scholarships abroad. I have also counseled and befriended 23 Rotary scholars from around the world who have studied in Philadelphia.

I could easily highlight some of the “scholar characters” I have met or even some marriages that have occurred among Rotary scholars studying here in Philadelphia, but I would rather emphasize just one story that illustrates the magnificence of Rotary......
