Message from the District Governor: Dr Stella Anyangwe
October 2021
It has been three months since the new Rotary Year started, with the call to “Serve to change lives” given to the 2021-22 CHANGE-MAKER team of RI President Shekhar Mehta. This first quarter of the Rotary Year has been an exciting, nail-biting and eye-opening one for me, especially giving me in-depth knowledge of our District.  
 
So far, I have visited over half of the 70 Rotary Clubs in our District, with almost all the visits being virtual, due to ongoing COVIC-19 restrictions. I have however had the privilege of two physical visits, and during which were new-member inductions. These visits have highlighted just how much most of our clubs have suffered from the nefarious effects of COVID-19 on lives and livelihoods of Rotarians and their families. The visits have also brought to glare some serious challenges being faced by clubs, especially regarding membership and financial obligations.
 
My first physical club visit was on 22nd September, to the RC Northcliff that meets at the Rand Park Golf Club.
 
 
 
WAZI is an 8 year old empowered girl. Join her and Rotarians the world over in celebrating her voice. 
 
International Day Of The Girl Child Lets help girls develop self-confidence and make their voices heard.
 
Empowering girls means supporting them to ensure that their basic needs are met while working to transform the structures and institutions that reinforce and perpetuate gender discrimination and inequality.
 
 
 
With World Polio Day approaching, now is the time to support Rotary’s fight against polio. Join us in the effort to make polio the second human disease ever to be eradicated.

Thanks to our generous members and donors, we reached our 2020-21 PolioPlus fundraising goal. With donations matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, every contribution goes even further toward ending this paralyzing disease for good.

Take action for World Polio Day!
Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta says that polio eradication can be achieved if Rotary members stay committed. He calls on every club to offer support this World Polio Day.

Council on Resolution
 
Resolutions from various districts Worldwide were sent to RI and all the Representatives of the Council on Resolutions (COR) as well as Council of Legislation (COL) had to cast their votes online.  The results came out recently and can be viewed by going to www.MyRotary.org  to the Learning and reference centre section.   
 
centre section.    You can then scroll to Policies and Procedures.   When you then click on that, it will take you to Council on Legislation and Resolutions. Or simply click here, which links directly to Councils of Legislation and all the Resolutions.
 
Resolutions of interest are:  20R – 10; 20R – 11; 20R – 13; 20R – 14; 20R – 25
 
The latter resolution is especially noteworthy:  20R – 25 was proposed by D9370 and endorsed through a district legislation meeting held in Cape Town in February 2020; it deals with the selection of Regional Leaders. This has at last been approved and henceforth, it is incumbent on the Rl Directors to consult with all their relevant District's leadership before appointing members to the various Regional and Zone positions - such as the Rotary Regional Coordinator, the Regional Rotary Public Image Coordinator etc.
