  1. 1. My Dear Rotarians,Advance greetings to each and every Rotarian and their family members on the occasion of “ Deepavali “the festival of lights. Let us on the auspicious of Deepavali pledge again that goodwill triumph over evil. During the month of October, I had the privilege of starting my official club visits. I have visitedKurnool Zone and Ananthapur Zone and what can I tell? The official visits are once in a life time opportunityto any Rotary Governor . I was really moved with the love and affection the Rotarians & their familymembers showered on me during the visits. what not! all the clubs are occupied with their services tocommunity. I would be failing if I do not recognize the efforts put in by the clubs which I have visited. Each& every club deserves a pat on their back! Month of November! This is celebrated as The Rotary Foundation month. It is duty of club leadersto focus on the Foundation activities with leaders and programs . We will be failing if our new Rotarians arenot updated about the programmes of The Rotary Foundation. More so, we are migrating to the future visionplan and unless and until we update ourselves , we will he failing back on our plans. It is not a irony? All of us are business or professionals and yet when we come to Rotary knowl-edge, we fall back . Let us try to learn more about Rotary International & The Rotary Foundation pro-grammes.I this issue, I am going to outline the history of The Rotary Foundation and its programmes.The Rotary Foundation The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding,goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation ofpoverty.The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotariansand friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.History of The Rotary Foundation In 1917, Rl President Arch C. Klumph proposed that an endowment be set up “for the purpose ofdoing good in the world.” In 1928, when the endowment fund had grown to more than US$5,000, it wasrenamed The Rotary Foundation, and it became a distinct entity within Rotary International.Five Trustees, including Klumph, were appointed to “hold, invest, manage, and administer all of its prop-erty... as a single trust, for the furtherance of the purposes of Rl.” Two years later, the Foundation made its first grant of $500 to the International Society for CrippledChildren. The organization, created by Rotarian Edgar F. “Daddy” Alien, later grew into the Easter Seals. The Great Depression and World War II both impeded the Foundation’s growth, but the need forlasting world peace generated great postwar interest in its development. After Rotary’s founder, Paul P .Harris, died in 1947, contributions began pouring into Rotary International, and the Paul Harris MemorialFund was created to build the Foundation. That year, the first Foundation program - the forerunner of Rotary Foundation.Ambassadorial Schol-arships- was established. In 1965-66, three new programs were launched: Group Study Exchange, Awardsfor Technical Training, and Grants for Activities in Keeping with the Objective of The Rotary Foundation,which was later called Matching Grants . The Health, Hunger and Humanity (3-H) Grants program was launched in 1978, and Rotary Volun-teers was created as a part of that program in 1980. PolioPlus was announced in 1984-85, and the next yearbrought Rotary Grants for University Teachers . The first peace forums were held in 1987-88, leading to theFoundation’s peace and conflict studies programs .M.V.N. Prabhu, Dist.

  2. 2. Dear fellow Rotarians, There are many ways to describe our Rotary Foundation. But I think of our Foundation literally – as the foundation for all of Rotary. We do not oftenthink about the ground beneath our feet. We do not often think about the walls that are holding up our house. We take them for granted. We think about themonly when they are not there. Not long ago in Japan, the ground fell out from under our feet. On Friday, 11 March 2011, a magnitude 9 earthquake shookJapan to its very core. More than 15,000 people died, nearly 6,000 were injured, and another 4,000 are still missing. The total losses of the disaster areestimated at over US$300 billion. In a matter of hours, half a million people in one of the world’s wealthiest and most developed countries lost everything. They went from livingin comfort and security to facing an uncertain future in school gymnasiums, tents, and ruined buildings. In Japan, we are used to earthquakes. We thoughtwe were ready for anything. But no one ever expected anything like this. What happened on that day changed Japan, and everyone who lives there. It has made us realize how fragile our lives are. And it has made merealize how little separates me from the people I help through Rotary. It is easy to look at the people we help through our Foundation as somehow differentfrom ourselves. They live far away. We do not know their language or their culture. We do not know what it is like to have no running water, no sanitation,no health care, no education. We look at pictures, and we read stories in the news about poverty, wars, and disasters. We see, from so far away, thepeople who are living through such terrible times. But it is hard to put ourselves in their place. Today, I tell you that there is nothing at all separating usfrom the people we help. We are all the same. Only the circumstances surrounding us are different. Through our Foundation, we have the power to live the words of our Foundation’s motto: Doing Good in the World. Through it, we can do so muchmore good than we could ever do alone. And it matters so much – to people just like us.Live up to the commitments that we makeNovember 2011Dear Rotary Leaders, The festive season is behind us. I am sure each one of you enjoyed the festivities and the family reunions just as muchas Manju and I did. During the recent Board Meeting of Rotary International I had the opportunity to stroll around on the 17th floorof the R.I. Headquarters. The Rotary Foundation Offices are located on the 17th floor of the One Rotary Centre. Conspicuous on the 17th floor is the Arch Klumph Gallerywhich houses the portraits of all those individuals and couples that have shared a significant portion of their resource in support of The Rotary Foundation.It made me proud to see so many couples and individuals from India whose portraits adorn the gallery. Rotarians from India continue to pour their resources in support of the Foundation not for just the recognition but because of their compassion andtheir empathy for the ones that are not as fortunate as us. This has been exemplified by the fact that from being the number 8 or 9 position in its totalcontributions to the Foundation a few years ago, India is today at number 3 position in the world. The credit for this goes to each and every Rotarian andour RRFCs that has lent support to the Foundation. This year being different from others because our own Kalyan and Binota are serving Rotary as its first couple, both of our RRFCs S.R Yoganandand Vinay Kulkarni along with their team of ARRFCs have challenged you all with a contribution target of US$ 15 million. It’s a tall call but I know everyRotarian from India will come forward to make Kalyan and Binota proud of Rotary in India. The Kolkata institute is around the corner and all of us looking forward to the training, learning and the camaraderie that happens at our Institutes.Among the several events that take place at the Rotary Institute, a Major Donor Dinner is organised by the RRFCs to recognise all of those who havecontributed significantly in support of the Foundation. The event also serves as an opportunity to encourage fresh contributions from those attending. PastR.I. President Raja Saboo has been the Master of Ceremonies of this event since inception and has been responsible for raising the level of contributionseach successive year. Motivated by the event and the occasion many of us announce our contributions and receive the recognition and applause publicly.It saddens me to learn that subsequently some of us do not honour the commitment that we made and fall back on one excuse or the other. Let us all liveup to our commitments that we make even though it may come at a significant personal sacrifice. I ask each one to Look within them when makingcommitments to our Foundation. Wish you all a very pleasant time ahead as we all work together to change the lives of the less fortunate in this world.Warm and sincere regards. If you can run one business well, you can run any Business well.
