Rotary president in for zonal forum

Germ-John-sml-cMr. John Germ, President of Rotary International, the world’s largest humanitarian service organisation, is in the country to participate in the Rotary Zone 20A Institute.

Speaking to the media yesterday, Mr. Germ said he was visiting the Zone to learn more about the geographic locations, as well as promoting the goals of the organisation.

The visit, he noted, was part of his strategy to share thoughts with recently elected district governors and leaders to know what to plan for the year ahead and work towards enhancing the quality of people’s lives.

“The Institute is a platform for incoming district governors and Rotarians to share information and exchange ideas about how best to work towards poverty reduction, illiteracy, improve maternal and child health care and malnutrition”, Mr. Germ said.

The Zone 20A Institute, being held for the first time here in Ghana, was also to allow the president inspect some of the main projects Rotary International was embarking on this year, including the water project aimed at making water accessible to people in deprived communities.

Mr. Germ, who is also scheduled to tour other countries as part of his zonal tour, asked Rotarians to remain focus and urged people to join the organisation to offer service to humanity.

The six days programme, he noted was to offer participants the opportunity to get trained, review achievements, set new goals and promote fellowship and networking opportunities.
