Message from the District Govenor

September is “Rotary’s Basic and Literacy Month” where we realign our focus on a key skill that in my view will propel people out of poverty. In my view, literacy is at the heart of basic education for all, and essential for reducing poverty levels; curbing population growth; reducing child mortality; achieving gender equality and ensuring sustainable development, peace and democracy. Literacy is a significant and specific goal for Rotary and so much so that it is also one of the 6 areas of focus for The Rotary Foundations. ‘There is no greater weapon against poverty than education’ (RIPP Jonathan B. Majiyagbe) It is without a speck of doubt that everyone should have the right to learn to read, write and enjoy he power, pleasures and independence of being educated. For some the journey will be easy, for others it will take much hard work but unfortunately for approximately 18 percent of today’s world population it will never happen. This is where Rotary can make a difference! Now more than ever, the help of Rotary Clubs is needed to support the efforts of parents, schools, and libraries to get youngsters proficient at an early age, so that they can not only read, but read to learn. Only when we work hand in hand can we make progress in raising literacy levels. I thank and commend clubs who are engaged in these endeavours.

What is Rotary?

WE TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES

We take action locally and globally.

Each day, our members pour their

passion, integrity, and intelligence

into completing projects that have

a lasting impact. We persevere until

we deliver real, lasting solutions.

WE CONNECT PEOPLE

Rotary unites more than a million

people.

Through Rotary clubs, people from all

continents and cultures come together

to exchange ideas, and form friendships

and professional connections while

making a difference in their backyards

and around the world.

WE SOLVE PROBLEMS

No challenge is too big for us.

For more than 110 years, we’ve

bridged cultures and connected

continents to champion peace,

fight illiteracy and poverty, pro-

mote clean water and sanitation,

and fight disease.

People of Action Rotary is where neighbours, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change.

Welcome to Rotary District 9630 Inc.
Our District consists of 52 clubs and almost 1200 Rotarians covering an area from Redland Bay, south of the Brisbane River to Beenleigh, along the western line to Charleville and south to St George.  Each club has its own unique character, its own short and long term goals and projects, its own mixture of members, gender, ages, vocations and experience but the one thing that unites us all is the desire to serve and to make a difference in the world.  Rotary’s core values are service, fellowship, diversity, Integrity and leadership.  These core values form the foundation on which we perform and conduct ourselves. They define what we stand for and inspire us to support the ideal of Service above Self. As the world is changing, we too as an organisation, need to change or adapt, however, our core values will never change. In the 2017-18 Rotary year our theme was Rotary Making a Difference and we were encouraged to broaden our horizon.  This year, 2018-19 our goal is to Be The Inspiration in the world, in our communities and in the lives of others. How we do this is up to each individual and each club but the one common factor in everything we do is our commitment to our core values and the ideal of service above self. We live in a changing world, the way we act, communicate and conduct our daily lives is changing.  If Rotary is to grow and prosper in this changing world then we need to adapt to these changes.  We need to be relevant to our membership and to the members we are trying to attract to our organisation.  I am honoured and privileged to serve you as your District Governor for 2018-19.  I know each and everyone one of you have commitments outside Rotary, to family and friends and to work, and rightly so.  I ask that you do what you can and when you can, to help make a difference in our communities and across the world.
