Message from the President

Welcome to all, 

Rotary is a group of diverse individuals coming together to impact communities, locally and globally, by effecting positive change through service and philanthropy. SERVICE ABOVE SELF is the motto of Rotary International and every Rotary Club in the world. I’m so proud to be a Rotarian. So proud to be connected to such a positive people for good in the world. So proud to be the president of the Rotary Club of Kathmandu North.  BAL RAM RAI

I have always wanted to help others. Connecting with Rotary on 6th July, 2014 proposed by PP Rtn Rabindra Jung Thapa, has enabled me to serve community. This year our club surpassed 25th year of Rotary year and celebrated Commemorate Silver Jubilee and is going to publish a memorabilia Souvenir covering our club's available whole Rotary history during 1993 to 2019. The publication team worked hard to organize all club activities during 25 years at their best to make a complete history book by research, consulting with PP, District officials, past souvenir etc. I expect the souvenir book will be our club's valuable corporate books and be beneficial to get past information and proud activities to all members in futures. 

As I set the club goal at the beginning of RY 2018-19, I will prefer to update the club's internal mechanism at strong level by following District # 3292 goal and participating at District schedules as much as possible. As a result, this year basic administrative activities like RWM, installation, financial administration and reporting, membership Growth, new member induction, Silver Jubilee Celebration & DG's official visit, weekly club bulletin etc have been performed on time. Similarly, preset vocational service projects like TEACH happy school diary distribution, school dress and academic material distribution, school bag distribution, VTT visit program, more than 7 general health camp and oral camp, free health, dental and blood donation, vocational training, advocacy and interaction about mental health, TEACH oral health awareness and screening, E-library along with District grant project at Jamunapur, Chitwan, and continuation of GG E-library & resource Technolory Center, capacity building of oral health education for vulnerable/disparity people of Nepal etc have been followed/completed with PP Rtn Bir Bahadur Tamang's leadership with high involement of club members. I appreciate public relation Chair PP Rtn Rishiraj Upadhayaya and his utmost effort for initiating Rotary Wheel plantation, bus stand painting, tree plantation etc. I also appreciate TRF Chair PP Rtn Rabindra Jung Thapa for promoting TRF contribution of USD 11500 from 5 PHF and 1 major donor this year.

It’s an honor to serve as president of the Rotary Club of Kathmandu North with RI theme “Be the Inspiration". I am proud to have worked with all of you by achieving the opportunities to serve, increasing professional networks, personal growth and development, friendship, world understanding, family foundation, social entertainment, ethical environment, good citizenship in such a big way this year. I look forward to doing even more during the year.
Thank you!!!
