Posted on : 14-03-2016 | By : Allan | In : News

Below is a short description of activities engaged by Tatu

 

:-1.Sunshine rally- this is a yearly event that brings the Rotarians and rotaractors together in a one day event to bring smiles to the faces of many disabled children around the capital city of Nairobi and its environs. It is just a day dedicated aside to bring the children together from the special schools and they just have fun with presentations and entertainment from guest atists,safari rally,free food and snacks,face paintings etc and they get to have some packages of essential goods like flour to go back to school with and even toys for the ones that are young enough to play with them.

2.Muthiga hope centre- This was an activity that my rotaract club endeavoured to do after every two months. It was also a day we would shop for foodstuff and snacks and hire a vehicle to take us to a rural place called muthiga where the children from that centre were always so happy to see us. We played with them, mentored them, helped out with the chores like nippier grass cutting for there milk cows, cleaning and clearing the compound, cooked some foods for them and blessed them with the foodstuff and snacks that we had shopped for them.

3.Help-a -girl campaign – This is also a two-year campaign that my rotaract club had where we could go around campus collecting sanitary towels from ladies willing to donate and raise money in different activities to buy sanitary towels and then we would go to different schools in the central province educating the girls about there adolescence changes and giving them sanitary towels that would last them a few months in order to reduce the stigma and also save them some money.

4. Car- wash -My club i.e the rotaract club also had this activity every now and then just to raise money to run club activities that required us to invest financially like shopping large quantities of goods while visiting children homes or the handicapped and this enabled us to impact there lives even if we were just students.
Those are some of the photos I could get in one of my flash disks.I would really have to such for others to get them but fo now I hope this is satisfactory.
If your club or district will be willing to support any of the activities or even other events that rotaractors and Rotarians put up in my club I would be more than delighted to share with you how we can do it.

5.Rotaract leaders retreat – On this particular year, we went for training while outdoor camping with other presidents from other rotaract clubs and it was a time to just have fun and remind ourselves of the call to offer ‘service above self’
Thank you so much again.

Visit of GFC and Roger to rotary club of Kuala Lumpur di Raja (the royal rotary club of Kuala Lumpur) on March 2

Posted on : 14-03-2016 | By : Allan | In : News

Roger spent a few days in Kuala Lumpur with George and Christine. So of course the first stop was to a Rotary meeting. The Rotary Club of Kuala Lumpur now the oldest in South-East Asia, existed in spirit as early as 1918, The Club was inaugurated on 27 September 1929 At that time no other Rotary club in the world had been given the “Royal” status. thus di Raja

The second visit was to an old hill station near Kuala Lumpur. Bukit Fraser. The location is one of Malaysia’s few pristine forests, Fraser’s Hill derives its name from Louis James Fraser, a solitary Scottish pioneer, who set up a tin-ore trading post in the 1890 Fraser’s Hill includes seven peaks, with altitudes between 1,220 and 1,524 meters above sea level The hill station has over 270 species of local and migratory birds flocking here together. Roger and I have just 250 to go to complete our collection. We stayed at Ye Olde Smoke House a colonial-era bungalow which spent part of its life as a Red Cross rehabilitation centre.

Visit to the Rotary Funded Renal Care Centre in Bangalore

Visit to the Rotary Funded Renal Care Centre in Bangalore

 

The Renal Care Centre at St. Theresa’s Hospital in Bangalore exemplifies all that is good about Rotary. It was established by Rotarians in District 3190 to cater to the needs of thousands of patients with kidney failure in need of regular dialysis. The expense can be prohibitive but the centre offers its services at minimal cost so that it is accessible by even the poorer section of the society. It was the brainchild of PDG K.S. Nagendra who managed to get all the 83 clubs in the District to join in the project, which was the recipient of Global Grant from OUR Foundation. In addition to providing dialysis the centre also provides counselling to patients and relatives in addition to advice about managing diabetes, a very common cause of kidney failure in India.

Visit to the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan-Bangalore Press School

 

During their recent visit to Bangalore in South India (Rotary District 3190) President George and Christine visited a local school with connections with Rotary clubs in our District.

Rotary Clubs Blackpool Palatine, Blackpool South, Fleetwood, Poulton-le-Fylde, St.Annes-on-the Sea, Lytham, Brampton & Longtown in association with the Rotary club of Bangalore South furnished the entire school through a Matching Grant from Our Rotary Foundation.

The school was established in the year 2011 with the aim of educating the economically weaker sections of the society, irrespective of gender, creed or religion. It strives to integrate children from all classes of the society and blend the culture, values and wisdom of ancient India with their constantly changing needs and aspirations.

George and Christine were shown around the around the spacious school by the Principal Ms Manjula and were most impressed by what they saw and heard from the students and teachers in addition to the facilities available.

This is a fine example of how with the aid of our Foundation we can contribute to the betterment of this world. It is also shows what clubs can achieve by working together.

My annual return to Kuala Lumpur and the Rotary Club of Gombak   (chartered in 1970) is always a most pleasurable event.  It’s a time to see old friends and share many happy memories.  This year was no exception. I joined the Rotary Club of Gombak in 1993 and was with them for 8 years so there is a lot of history.

The photo shows me with four of the members who were in the Club when I joined in 1994 : PP Vincent Ng, PP and PDG Leslie Saludin , PP Wong Yow Seng and PP Yeo Soon Teck.  More have survived  !!.  It’s just that the 5 of us were talking and thought a photo would be good. The President when I joined was Wong Yow Seng who has remained a close personal friend.   I shall miss them all when Christine and I  return to Lancaster but I shall enjoy being back in the Rotary Club of Lancaster as well.
