When the sun sets on Kigali on 19th July 2014 our dear readers, the Rotaract Club of Kigali City (RCKC) will unveil to you all a new President and a new cabinet.
Amon Bater takes oath as the third president of RCKC that evening at Accord Hotel, Kacyiru, having served an entire year as an able deputy to outgoing president Shamillah Ayebazibwe and having showed, in this past year all the qualities that he will need to launch this great club to even greater heights. RCKC will have very many presidents in future, yet upon the first team lies the greatest burden- to keep improving on past achievements.
The past year has been as great as they come and yet this coming one promises to even be bigger. Guests will be expected from Uganda, Burundi and Kenya in all three ladders of Rotary (Rotary, Rotaract and Interact).
Top of Amon’s agenda will perhaps be to build a strong local base and expand our international reach but his team seem equal to the task. Only time will tell and by this time next year, we hope to be talking improvements rather than regression.
So here’s to say thanks to all our friends and family who made our 2013/ 2014 successful and to urge them all to return to our support, just as we believe we have been of tremendous help to them. This then is a toast to; The Rotaract Clubs of KIE and SFB- Kigali (Rwanda), To the Rotaract Clubs of Bujumbura and Inyenyeri (Burundi), To the Rotaract Clubs of Nairobi Thika, Nairobi Central and the indefatigable Kisumu (Kenya), To the Rotaract Clubs of Kampala West, Kampala Central, Kampala City, Kololo, Kasese, Mbale, Kyambogo, Bugolobi, Kampala South and IHSU (Uganda), To our Rotary friends in Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, USA and Britain, we say thank you.
Together, we served the community, made our sponsor club and partners proud, and taken care of our vocational interests as well. We look forward to even bigger things than that.
Our diabetes project will grow ever bigger and we will continue to give 100% dedication to our every effort to heal the community.
Life, as we see it in Rotaract has always been different from how others see it from the outside looking in. Many don’t even pay attention. This year, we hope to make them watch and learn. We always aim for the highest.
Please join us if you can to our installation event and charter celebrations as we take Rotaract in Rwanda to the next level. We are proud of what we have achieved and we hope our sponsors and partners are proud of us too.
So let’s all stand up and straighten our jackets and appreciate the past year of President Ayebazibwe Shamillah and then toast to the new reign of President Amon Bater. May RCKC leave indelible marks on all who find it and continue to inspire positive change.
SERVICE IS HONORABLE.
