David Osei Amankwah Jnr, the first Governor of Rotary District 9104, is on a mission to promote community development and inspire hope among those in need.

During a recent visit to the Accra-Airport Rotary Club on September 28, Governor Amankwah Jnr called upon Rotarians to leverage their resources and influence to make a meaningful impact in their communities.

Addressing the Rotary Club of Accra-Airport, the District Governor emphasized the universal nature of human needs, highlighting the various forms of assistance required worldwide, such as access to basic amenities, clean water, sanitation facilities, and vocational training. With a heartfelt plea, he implored the district to harness all available resources to advance Rotary’s core principles.

He underscored the significance of Rotarians becoming influential figures within their communities, with a focus on Rotary’s seven priority areas: Promoting peace, Fighting disease, Providing clean water and sanitation, Saving mothers and children, Supporting education and literacy, Growing local economies, and Protecting the environment.

Mr Amankwah Jnr also encouraged Rotarians to unite their collective influence and resources to drive community growth. His message was a call to action, emphasizing the need for Rotarians to actively engage in the transformation of their communities.

During his speech, David Amankwah Jnr reiterated the theme for the 2023-24 Rotary year: “Create Hope in the World.” This theme reflects Rotary’s commitment to restoring hope in the face of conflicts and promoting lasting change across society.

The objectives outlined under this theme include empowering youth, supporting impactful health service projects, emphasizing environmental conservation through tree planting, and inspiring the younger generation to participate in social change initiatives.

Furthermore, DG David Amankwah Jnr called upon all Rotarians to contribute to the Polio Plus Fund, a vital component of Rotary International.

He stressed the fund’s significance in financing essential operational expenses, including vaccine delivery, health worker training, transportation, social mobilization, and support for surveillance activities.

By contributing to this fund, Rotarians can actively participate in the global campaign to eradicate polio and enhance public health on a global scale.

Rotary is a global network consisting of 1.4 million individuals who are neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers. They envision a world where people unite and take action to create enduring change, both globally and within their communities.
