Welcome to Rotary International District 7790.
Someone asked me recently what my definition of Rotary; it is, I believe, the largest philanthropic network in the world.
This year, two themes will inspire members of our clubs:
- The theme of our International President, Sakuji Tanaka, clearly, is "Peace through service". As everyone has their own definition of peace, it will be easy to adapt this wonderful theme to our daily lives.
- The specific topic to our district Rotarian becomes a logical extension of the first, either: "Peace through Communication." With better communication, there would certainly less quarrels and wars in the world.
Rotary allows its members to increase their network of contacts, develop leadership and participate in humanitarian projects moult home or abroad. Wave.
In 2012-2013, we invite Rotarians from 53 clubs in our district to participate in two joint projects:
In the region of Chandigarh, north of New Delhi in India, this project aims to improve the plight of the disadvantaged who live in slums. It includes sub-projects:
The 53 clubs will be invited to participate in the program of "Sentinels for Suicide Prevention" which aims to train stakeholders who will make contact with a person in distress and where and when to refer them to resources to aid in their region.
Rotarians to become:
I invite you to browse our site and discover the various programs the District offers its members and the local population. (Exchange student, Scholarship, Institute on leadership, group study exchange, etc..)
For current members:
A Rotary year is quickly past.
I encourage you to commit yourself and quickly in the different committees and projects your club and your district.

... and help Rotary build a better world, while combining business ... with pleasure!
