Dear Fellow Rotarians,
I am very happy to inform you that India once again has ranked world # 2 in giving to The Rotary Foundation. With a contribution of USD $21.39 million Rotarians in India have once again experienced and displayed the Joy of Giving.
With nearly USD $10 million, Zone 4 is amongst top 5 zones for Rotary in total contribution.
With with Endowment Fund of USD $ 2.9 million, Zone 5 is amongst the top 5 in the world.
At district level:
I compliment, DG Suresh Hari and the Rotarians of district 3190 for their outstanding contributions of USD $3.05 million which is the highest total contributions in the Rotary world.
District 3141 under DG Shashi Sharma too has been outstanding by being 2nd in the world with USD $2.59 million.
District 3011 under DG Vinay Bhatia is ranked 9th in the world at USD $ 1.5 million.
In all it has been a very satisfying year with outstanding contributions and equally outstanding programs.
Our heartfelt compliments to TRF Team and Staff and all the District Governors of 2018-19 for their sterling leadership.
The new Rotary year too has started on a good note and I am sure in the 100th year of Rotary in India it will be an epoch making year for Indian Rotary, even as far as Foundation contribution and program is concerned. Let us keep doing good in the world.
Rotary Club of Calcutta-Mahanagar.
Director, Rotary International 2011-13.
