Rotary Stories

By John Hewko, Rotary International General Secretary
 
Innovation and flexibility. Those are two words you hear a lot today when we think about any organization adapting to a rapidly changing environment.  But what do those two words mean for Rotary?
In short, they will define Rotary’s future, because they are fundamental pillars of our strategic plan for enhanced impact, reach, engagement and adaptability.
If we are really serious about growing Rotary and attracting new members from all demographics, we must innovate.

 
Bill Gates was just a few months old when the first polio vaccine was developed in 1955. Now the American philanthropist is at the forefront with Rotary in the fight against polio. He used a district conference in Spokane, Washington, USA, to thank Rotarians for their leadership and dedication to eradicate the disease from the planet.

Being part of the Rotary family made me a more complete professional. But that’s not all. I feel that the experience changed my relationship with the world for the better. These are learnings that make sure that, wherever I am, I am able to get ahead and do something more.

 

Stephanie Woollard went from Down Under to the top of the world to find out if one person can make a difference.

The clacking of sewing machines fills the sunlit room until word spreads that the bus has arrived. At that, a dozen women clad in pink kurtas file into the courtyard of the Seven Women Center in Kathmandu, Nepal. They smile widely as a group of Australian women led by a tall blonde enters through the iron gate. Stephanie Woollard bends down to let Sandhya Khadgi, the center’s bookkeeper and literacy trainer, put a dot of red powder on her forehead and a red flower petal atop her head in a gesture of welcome. Woollard has arrived with a group of Rotary members and friends to tour the center that she founded and whose goal is to improve the lives of women in Nepal.
The E-Club and OPAL (SA Health) have launched our major project, Food For Health providing Healthy alternatives for a Healthier Lifestyle. The key focus of this project is to promote better food choices for a healthier lifestyle. Community Organisations and Service Clubs have an important role to play in encouraging these healthier lifestyles. This can be achieved by adopting guidelines and recipes from our website which will help our commitment to serve humanity by keeping you and your family healthy.
