Rotary clubs are having a tremendous impact on communities around the world. In southwest Uganda, Rotary members from Europe, Uganda, and the United States have teamed up with a pioneering doctor and two private entrepreneurs to address the needs of the Batwa Pygmies. Together, they’ve opened a nursing school to train badly needed caregivers for the entire region.
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped.
Nisha Kotecha, a member of Rotaract in the United Kingdom, explains why it is critical for clubs to tell the public about the good work they are doing in their communities. Kotecha says her life and hundreds of others have been changed by one of the largest clubs in London. But outside of Rotary circles, the club is not widely known.

ORGANIZE A ROTARY DAY! Hold a fun, informal event in your community and introduce the public to your club and Rotary. It just might inspire someone to join! Learn more about Rotary Days Rotaract Our Rotaract chair has recently had to resign as career changes have made it difficult to continue. District 6080 is currently looking for someone to chair the Rotaract section of Youth Services. Essentially the duties would be to assist other Rotaract clubs if they have questions. Also, before DG Mike Beahon’s passing he had created a specific goal of developing 2 new Rotaract clubs during the 2014-15 year. As you know, Rotaract clubs are sponsored by a Rotary club. Currently I have contact information for 4 Rotaract clubs. I would be happy to share all of the tools that I have in order to continue with Mike’s vision.
