Dear Fellow Rotaractors!
Firstly, I would like to congratulate and extend my best wishes to all Club Leaders of Rota Year 2019-20 for taking up the esteemed leadership roles in your clubs! Similarly, congratulations and kudos to the leaders of Rota Year 2018-19 for successfully carrying forward the legacy of Rotaract!
I find Rotaract fascinating especially because it is this amazing pool of self-motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated youths. We strive to the best of our abilities to bring positive changes in the society while also fostering our personal and professional growth. It is a perfect blend of service, fellowship and personal growth and it is great to see our clubs excelling in all these. Thank you for your continuous efforts in providing needful service while also being committed to youth development. Rotaract is proud to have dedicated and enthusiastic individuals like you all.
RI President Rtn. Mark Maloney has announced the theme for Rota Year 2019-20 as “Rotary Connects the World”. Indeed, Rotary connects us with like-minded individuals who want to take action for a better world. As President Mark rightly points out, we need to reflect upon and find out ways as to how we can connect to and engage more individuals, making Rotary and Rotaract more engaging as well as manageable for everyone.
Complementing the District Theme “सक्षमता र साझेदारी - Competence and Collaboration”, I urge all Rotaractors to dedicate this year to bettering ourselves so we can contribute better with our improved capabilities. Let us work towards fostering our skills and talents, towards growth and development, and towards building our own capacities. Rotaract is a platform - let us utilize this platform as a place to identify our strengths, work on our skills, hone our talents and become better everyday. Find something you can learn, something that will make you better, in every action you take.
Let us also complement competence with collaboration. Let us work together in the process of bettering ourselves. Let us seek to collaborate with our fellow clubs, with Rotary Clubs, with different Districts, local clubs, organizations and different stakeholders alike - firstly to develop our competency and with that, help others in the process of becoming more competent! Let us collaborate also in service, to bring out synergic effects that make our actions more meaningful and impactful.
Once again, thank you for your continuous efforts and contribution in making Rotaract movement very vibrant and successful in our District. Let us continue working together to achieve our goals and to bring about positive changes around us!
My best wishes are always with you all.
Rtr. Sneha Shakya
District Rotaract Representative 2019-20
