Anganwadi - Gollahalli

  • 08/07/2018

Inauguration of the First Anganwadi. RCB alleviates concerns of working mothers. ‘Happy Child, Nation’s Pride’ was a popular slogan in the 80’s. An indisputable fact indeed! In pursuit of it, the Indian Government took many measures, one such being the formation of Anganwadis. The objective was to provide children between 2 and 4 years of age a happy daycare centre, while at the same time allow the mother freedom to pursue her work. However, over the years, Anganwadis saw neglect and indifference resulting in more stress than succor for the mother!

RI President's Message July 2018

  • 01/07/2018

President’s Message Month of July 2018 Dear fellow Rotarians, One year ago, your Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new vision statement, reflecting our aspirations for our organization and its future. It reads, "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves." That simple sentence distills so much of what is essential about Rotary. We unite, because we know that we are far stronger together than we could ever be alone. We take action, because we are not dreamers, but doers. We work to create lasting change that will endure long after our involvement has ended – across the globe and in our communities. And perhaps most important of all, we work to create change in ourselves – not just building a better world around us, but becoming better people ourselves. A quotation attributed to French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry goes: "If you want to build a boat, don’t begin by collecting wood, cutting boards, or assigning tasks. Begin by awakening in the souls of your workers a longing for the vast and boundless sea." Each of us came to Rotary because we had a longing – to have an impact, to make a difference, to be part of something larger than ourselves. That desire, that vision for a better world and our role in building it, is what drives us in Rotary. It’s what made us become members, it’s what motivates us to serve, and it’s what led me to choose our theme for this Rotary year: Be the Inspiration. I want to see Rotary Be the Inspiration for our communities by doing work with a transformational impact. It’s time to start moving forward, by removing the barriers that are holding us back. Let’s make it easier to make adjustments in our clubs or start new clubs that suit different needs. Let’s work to strengthen Rotaract and smooth the transition from Rotaract clubs into Rotary. Let’s give all Rotarians the flexibility to serve in the ways that work best for them, so that every Rotarian finds enduring value in Rotary membership. Truly sustainable service, the kind of service we strive for in Rotary, means looking at everything we do as part of a larger global ecology. This year, I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration for sustainable service by addressing the impact of environmental issues on our work. The environment plays a key role in all six of our areas of focus, and that role is only becoming greater as the impact of climate change unfolds. It’s time to move past seeing the environment as somehow separate from those six areas. Clean air, water, and land are essential for healthy communities – and essential for the better, healthier future we strive for. Be the Inspiration – and together we can, and we will, inspire the world. DR BARRY RASSIN President, Rotary International
