Welcome to the Rotary Club of Kloof's web site
The Rotary Club of Kloof has served the local community for 35 years raising funds through presenting major events such as Festival in the Hills.
The Club also undertakes other fund raising activities of a less grand scale but nevertheless important in what they achieve. Fund raising and fund distribution are viewed as important activities but, as a Club, we make both activities fun for members by generating a sense of achievement and fellowship.
Rotary is the world's oldest service club organisation with over 1.2 million members in 200 countries. This is a network of a kaleidoscope of people striving to put "service above self" and to bring support, often life-giving, to disadvantaged communities in many areas such as humanitarian, health and environmental issues. Rotary's main areas of focus are the following:
1. Peace and conflict prevention.
The Rotary Club of Kloof will be focusing on the following in 2016/17:
2. Disease prevention and treatment.
3. Water and sanitation.
4. Maternal and child health.
5. Basic education and literacy.
6. Economic and community development.
1. Poverty alleviation.
We are aware that we are only one Club addressing major issues facing South Africa and in this regard we will look at co-operating with other like-minded organisations and in such a manner we see ourselves contributing to a better life for all - a bucket of water is made up of many small drops of water; each drop counts.
2. Early childhood support.
5. Care of the aged.
6. Environmental matters.
In undertaking activities and interacting with the public we apply the Rotary Four Way Test which questions the things we think, say or do as follows:
Rotary, as stated, is a network and not only do we serve our communities but we also look to supporting other Rotarians as and when required. We encourage interaction between people supporting youth and professional exchanges and promoting Rotarian to Rotarian contacts - wherever in the world you are you should be able to connect with a Rotarian.
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The Rotary theme for 2014/15 is "Light up Rotary" in which the Rotary International President, Gary C.K. Huang, encourages all who are associated with Rotary or wish to become associated with Rotary to become engaged at a meaningful level and to realise the potential that they have to serve and change lives.
Like all service based organisations we need to increase our membership and we therefore invite interested persons to contact either Don Perks (email@example.com) or Selwyn Comrie (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to interacting with you at the Rotary Club of Kloof or in the wider community of Rotary.
Yours in Rotary
Rotary Club of Kloof - President.
