In his address, DG Dr. Bharat touched on several subjects pertaining to the international organisation. He said that membership in the district has declined; to counter this, we have to look at the social health of our clubs and we need new clubs in areas where Rotary is not represented. Rotary have to embrace programmes aimed at bringing more youth into Rotary. Additionally, he also suggested to develop leaders within our clubs, in order to remain dynamic.
Dr. Bharat announced that the eradication of polio, a global project spearheaded by the World Health Organization is nearing completion.
He further elaborated on the relevance of areas on which Rotary must focus which includes providing proper sanitation especially to females, strengthening communities through basic education, ensuring the health of mothers and children, especially during and after pregnancy, fighting diseases by organising more health camps in slum areas and growing local economies in poverty-stricken areas.
