Our very own IPDG, Annemarie Mostert, has been selected by President Shekhar to be the Ambassador for the Empowerment of Girls initiative for Region 28 (7 Districts) of Rotary Zone 22. Hearty congratulations to her, and we look forward to details on how our District will support her in carrying out this initiative. My wish is that all clubs use 23rd Feb 2022, the Rotary anniversary, to carry out Rotary awareness in our communities, in all ways possible. The District must showcase Rotary this year, as “Rotary Days”. We are also proud to announce that our District was selected to host one of the six Presidential conferences this Rotary Year. Maputo, Mozambique is the venue for the Presidential Conference, on 5-6 March, 2022, and whose theme is “Environment, Economy and Peace”. PDG Kobla Quashie (RC Manzini) is the Convener of that conference, for which a Local Organizing Committee is already hard at work. My visits to Clubs have started full-swing, albeit virtually, due to COVIC-19 restrictions. How we long for the time when we can once again have physical visits. Our heartfelt condolences go to Clubs and families that have lost loved ones to COVID. Stay well and safe!
We Will Make A Formidable Team Together!

Women in Rotary is a Global Rotary Radio (GRR) programme that showcases Female Rotarians to the world.
This is an avenue for them to share their Rotary stories and much more inspiring stories.
Below is an audio recording with SG Stella Anyangwe of Rotary E55, take time and listen.
I wish each one of you and your families a great Rotary New Year! Together, let us make it one of the best years of our lives, by making it a year to grow more and do more. Let this be a year of changemakers and let us begin with our membership.
That is precisely why the Each One, Bring One initiative is so important. If each member introduces one person to the Rotary our membership can increase to 1.3 million by July 2022. So, let's just do it!
Imagine the change we, as Rotary members, can make when there are so many of us! More people to care for others, more people to Serve to Change Lives, more members will enable us to embark on bigger and bolder service projects.
One element that we can incorporate into all of our service initiatives is empowering girls. Unfortunately, even in this day and age girls and young women face disproportionate challenges all over the world. Empowering girls and young women to have greater access to education, better health care, more employment, and equality in all walks of life should be embedded in every Rotary project we launch. Girls are future leaders, so we must ensure that we help them change their future.
So, friends let us save to change lives.
President 2021 - 2022
