The Rotary and Rotaract Clubs of Brusubi on Saturday 26th June 2021 celebrated their 5 years of community service at 2ray’s restaurant in Kerr Siring.
The clubs’ objectives are to serve their community people, advocate for goodwill and fellowship, internationality and emphasis on high ethical standards.
During the celebration, the clubs elected new presidents and also inducted new members into the clubs.
Omar J. Jallow, the newly elected president of the Rotary Club of Brusubi, said he will continue to strengthen the membership of the club and diversify it by bringing in more females to the club.
“Rotary is about service and service is something you do for the benefit of others without regard to compensation,” he said.
Rotarian Jallow urged more young people to be involved in the work they do, saying they are ageing and need younger ones in the club. Jallow said he will also anticipate for the Rotarians to build relationships with members and other rotary clubs in the country and abroad.
“I am looking forward to continuing the work my predecessor has started,” he said.
Jallow also intends to improve the capacity of the Rotarians by providing skill and career training.
Ramatoulie Ojikutu, elected president of Rotaract club, promised to do her best to ensure they have trust, faith and confidence in her.
“The reward for our services is not monetary and thus, we guarantee professional development, experience and self-actualization of our members,” she said. “I strongly believe that together we can conquer not only milestones but hearts and minds and transform dreams into reality.”
Ojikutu believed that if they want to go far, they have to work together.
The outgoing executives board thanked the association and wished the incoming executives and the whole Rotary and Rotaract clubs of Brusubi a successful year.
