Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends,
It only seems like yesterday when I was first inducted into this very prestigious club and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I will the president. After 6 years of being a member, I have learned so much from everyone about rotary, different kinds of businesses, a variety of professional fields, difference of cultures, love for family and the willingness to serve humanity. I am so honored to be given this opportunity and the confidence you have all given me to lead is truly inspiring. I am so overwhelmed and I promise to give this year my 100%.
This Rotary Year’s Theme is Be the Inspiration What we aim to do is to inspire the people we meet through the projects:
Gift of Life Vocational Training Team (VTT) for the past 10 years we have been operating on Children with Congenital heart defects and we have made this even bigger by getting a Global Grant which is do far the biggest grant at USD 265,000 we have in partner with RC Willingboro (District 7500). We aim to operate on a minimum of one hundred (100) patients this Rotary year and give these children a second lease in life.
Paypay National High School, our second largest Global grant project partnered with RC Eversham (District 1100) at USD 245,000 is a continuing project which we are rehabilitating a school affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
The Don Bosco Liloan school upgrade project, funded by a $57,395 global grant and partnered with RC Mississauga-Streetville (Toronto) and District 7080.
Under our basic education and literacy program, we will be having our 5th annual spelling bee contest this year. Book donations and School in a Bag project is made possible by a Global grant with RC Daegu-Taebaek (District 3700) and Smart telecommunications. We will be delivering 18 sets of School in a Bag kits to schools located in remote parts of Cebu to give them the tools to be able to have the opportunity to use Computers and tablets so that they will not be left behind; to grow with the rest of the world in using technology to learn. Our club believes that Education is one of the most important areas of focus because with Education instilled in the children, it will never be taken away from them and will forever be with them as they grow to be drivers and leaders. We also believe that proficiency in English is the main driving force for the Philippine economy.
GOLI Run is our fund raising activity in connection with the Gift of Life VTT. Our aim for this project is to raise funds to support the undertaking while at the same time, create public awareness about Rotary and the Gift of Life project; to reach out to the children with congenital heart defects that they may be treated.
I am very thankful to be in this very prestigious 86-year old club, to be surrounded by members who are very willing to fund, support and participate in our many club projects. With unwavering passion and desire do service above self, to make this world a better place and to be the Rotarian who will be an inspiration to the people they encounter and touch. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
