Presidential Address For October 2019
The Rotary International theme for October is ‘Economic and Community Development Month’, with the mission to help reduce poverty in underserved communities through training, well-paying jobs, and access to financial management institutions.
World Polio Day is going to be held on 24 October. In 1985, Rotary launched the PolioPlus program to globally eradicate polio through the mass vaccination of children. Rotarians Rotaractors volunteered to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries since inception. Some months we celebrated Three Years of no Polio case and we need to maintain such zero closure.
In addition to the success of our Club Installation, we have more 15 Project to carry out within this second Quarter. We shall be in the forefront to Elevate Rotaract by donating to The Rotary Foundation, Increasing the number of Rotaract Club (Ekwulobia and Umunze) and possible Co-Sponsoring one of them.
Our Rotary International President has for long asked us to connect the word, so now is the time to begin plans for the *Home Coming of the Grandfathers*
