Dear Fellow Rotarians,
A very Happy New Year to you and your family members. May the New Year bring happiness and peace in your life. May the New Year also give you more opportunities for “Doing Good in the World”.
2018 was a good year for The Rotary Foundation in India. We had excellent contributions from the Rotarians. Many Major donors contributed large sums of Money and the small contributions too made up a big impact. My Compliments to each donor for their generosity. I am sure, this will carry on in this year too.
2018 also saw a plethora of Global Grants, in nearly all areas of focus. The Grants helped bring smiles when the infants were healed when the villages got clean drinking water when Gauri could go to school again and her Mother could earn because of getting skilled.
We reached out to lakhs of people. I am sure their prayers and blessings have enriched our life.
In this New Year, let us again re-dedicate ourselves to giving and “Doing Good in the World”.
