DRR’s Newsletter (October 2022)

Dearest reader,

“We should not live for ourselves alone, but for the joy in doing good for others.” Arch Klumph, founder of The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation’s motto is “Doing Good in the World” Whether you call it random acts of kindness, helping others, or doing charitable and humanitarian works, doing good always changes anyone’s perspective on their lives and their context in general. Things are looking brighter, as a series of district projects are fast implemented.

Congratulations to the REI organizing committee on executing and concluding the 8th edition of the Rotaract Earth Initiative. The Rotaract Earth Initiative is a campaign by Rotaractors in Uganda to plant 10,000 trees every year. I congratulate Rotaract Clubs that have so far implemented projects.

Our theme in October is Economic and Community Development. The work of Rotary is in the community. The ability to generate personal
income and contribute to community well-being is simply a dream that looks so distant for many people. To these people and the communities, we serve, these contributions, and projects are noteworthy and I encourage you to take time and document these interventions as you create that impact that will leave a positive mark in our footsteps.

In this issue, we bring you insights into reasons why it is good to do make-up visits, participate in projects to dreams and finally a book review on Intellectual Property.

I hope you are as inspired as much as I was. Enjoy.
