Rotary’s Role in $9m+ Fight for our Farmers

CHANNEL NINE has joined forces with Australian Rotarians and the National Farmers’ Federation to raise funds for Aussie farmers facing the worst drought in living memory. At the time of print, more than $9 million had been raised, with the figure still rising. The funds will be distributed to farmers in need by Australian Rotary clubs and districts, in conjunction with the National Farmers’ Federation.

Doing Good is Good Business

UNLIKE conventional corporate models, where business and moral decision making can be clearly differentiated, in the case of Rotary, Doing Good is our business – the two are intrinsically linked, not separate entities. With Corporate Social Responsibility moving from the realm of voluntary self-regulation at the level of individual organisations, to mandatory schemes at regional, national and even transnational levels, Rotary could not be better placed to lead the CSR charge through both example and collaboration.

Enabling the Disabled

BE IT THROUGH birth, age or misfortune, to be of able mind and body is a privilege denied to millions across the globe. The physical, emotional and financial burdens placed on the disabled and their carers can be crippling, and in poverty-stricken developing nations, where literacy rates are low, a disability can mean ostracism from their community and even their family. Rotary projects near and far are working to improve the lives of those living with a disability and get them out and about in the community.

Together We Transform

I WAS a district governor in 1987-88, the year that Charles Keller, who sadly passed away in May, was president of Rotary International. As district governor, I attended the 1988 Rotary International Convention in Philadelphia, US. There, I heard that there were an estimated 350,000 cases of polio in 125 countries. But I also heard some exciting news: We had surpassed our goal of raising $120 million for the eradication of polio. We had raised $219,350,449 (and later, after the accounting was done, that figure was revised to $247 million). What a celebration we had. We proved to ourselves and the world the strength of Rotary and that we could take on a global health challenge.
