Kiondo Gia CUCU #Part_2

Kiondo Gia cucu Part 2

After an epic Week of awesomely beautiful events, The #SunshineRally and the #FirstLadyHalfMarathon2016 , Rotaract Limuru is already warming up again to go visit our CUCU in Muguga, Kiambu County.

” Noone can ever explain the torture in being poor. When you have to wake up with nothing in the house to cook and have to start the long day on an empty stomach. People will see you on the road dressed shabbily and smiling as you say hae to them, but if only they knew the agony and desparate need of just the basic needs for the needy children and widowed mothers in our society, then they would be compassionate enough to help.”

Its no ones choice to be poor, if any one had to make a choice then all of us would be really rich.

033113_1615_TheArtofGiv3 And neither is Poverty a curse, Its always an avenue for those who have just a little to share and be a Blessing to others. We never give because we have too much in excess of what we need, Its always a  sacrifice of the very little we have to those who have none.

What we may find as too little to us maybe one huge gift to someone else , remember the story of that one woman who gave his last coin as offering to the church. It would have seemed so small compared to the huge amounts by the others, but she gave it with all her heart , all the Love and all her will, she sacrificed every penny she had to God.

Mama Wacuka is our Cucu this season. she lives in a small ghetto in Muguga, Kiambu County. She is one woman you would say has seen it all in Life. In her small mabati house , she lives with her mentally challenged daughter who she cries for every day when she leaves home to come back late at night or after days. She is the mother, the Dad and everything for her humble home.

She is in dire need of our help. Foodstuffs, Beddings, Clothings just EVERYTHING!! and thats why we need EVERYONE to join us on this noble course.

March is Rotary Literacy Month

 March rotary

 

 

March is the month that we showcase literacy. All across the world Rotarians and Rotaractors note the importance of reading and support numerous programs that help children and adults to gain the ability to read.

 

Reading, writing and character literacy are essential to independence and economic freedom. Far too many adults in Africa live in poverty today because they haven’t mastered those skills. Far too many children are currently at risk of falling into the same trap. Illiteracy is one of the world’s most serious problems.

 

The inability to read translates into many difficulties. Safely driving a car, voting in an election, using a newspaper, applying for a job or having mom read a bedtime story are just a few of the challenges to be overcome.

 

Literacy is a basic skill that helps us to fight poverty, increase productivity, and gain skills to help ourselves and help the people around us.

Rotary and Rotaract Clubs carry out different activities to celebrate and create awareness of the role of Education in society. This may include but not limited to ;

Schedule a speaker on a literacy topic for a regular meeting.

Present a literacy award or recognition at a regular meeting.  Recognize teachers, librarians or civic leaders who promote the literacy within your community.

Sponsor a newspaper radio or TV advertisement or billboard about Rotary’s work with literacy.

Undertake a literacy project at home and abroad.

Recruit a new member who is passionate about literacy.

Initiate the club’s literacy project planning process for 2015. 

Celebrate the club’s literacy project successes during 2015.

President’s Message March 2016

Ravindran_KR_14

K.R. Ravindran

President 2015-16

Some years ago, I was asked to speak at an Interact club in my home city of Colombo, Sri Lanka. I have always taken my interactions with Rotary youth very seriously, so I prepared my remarks carefully and put the same effort into my presentation that I would for any other event. After the meeting, I stayed to chat with a few of the Interactors, answering their questions and wishing them well.

I came out of the classroom where we had met into the autumn afternoon. The bright sun was shining directly into my eyes, so I found a bit of shade behind a pillar where I could wait for my ride.

As I stood there, hidden from view, I overheard a group of the very Interactors who had just listened to my speech. Naturally I was curious: What would they be saying? What had they taken away from my presentation? I quickly realized that what they had taken away was not at all what I had intended.

They were not talking about what I had said, the stories I had told, or the lessons I had come to their school to impart. To my astonishment, the major topic of conversation was my tie! I listened with amusement as they chattered about my Western clothes, my background, my business; every aspect of my appearance and behavior was dissected and discussed. Just as they began to speculate about what car I drove, my ride arrived and I stepped out into view. They were perhaps a bit embarrassed, but I just smiled, got into the car, and drove off with a wave.

Whatever they learned from me that day, I learned far more. I learned that the lessons we teach with our examples are far more powerful than those we teach with words. I realized that as a Rotary leader, and a prominent person in the community, I had, for better or worse, become a role model for these young people. Their eyes were on me in a way that I had never before appreciated. If they chose to emulate me, they would model themselves on what they saw, not what I told them.

All of us in Rotary are leaders, in one way or another, in our communities. All of us bear the responsibility that comes with that. Our Rotary values, our Rotary ideals, cannot be left within the confines of our Rotary clubs. They must be carried with us every day. Wherever we are, whoever we are with, whether we are involved in Rotary work – we are always representing Rotary. We must conduct ourselves accordingly: in what we think, what we say, what we do, and how we do it. Our communities, and our children, deserve no less.
