Dear partners in service,
On the 1st of July 2015 I took on the mantle as the 29th president of the Inner Wheel club of Kampala.
I believe all leadership comes from God and I am grateful to Him for giving me this opportunity to lead. I also thank the ladies of Inner Wheel for entrusting me with this responsibility. I accept it and promise to make you proud. We live in a world of human suffering and deprivation. What can we do as caring beings to help our communities live better lives?
Everyone has something to give be it time, money, wisdom, love or a variety of other things. We can accomplish miracles through our giving. Giving ideas, skills and resources can dramatically improve the world we live in. Whatever our circumstances, we can have a positive influence on other people’s lives.
Giving creates a symbiotic relationship: it benefits both parties, that is, the giver and the recipient. The recipients benefit from your gift, while giving gives a meaning to your life as a giver. When you give, you get a chance to make an incredible impact during and often beyond your life time.
In Inner Wheel we give without expecting anything in return, and I believe the benefits we reap are even greater. Inner Wheel International theme of year 2015/2016 is “Unique and United”. The club intends to give all it takes to accomplish what lies ahead this year.
All individuals have unique gifts which when put together can produce results that are more than an individual’s input.
Rod Handley (2002) noted that people who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are travelling on the thrust of one another. This team work is what has pushed us in the past as a club and will propel us to greater heights in the future.
Our common goal will always remain to alleviate the suffering of the under privileged in our communities through Personal Service, Friendship and International Understanding. Let us purpose to do this and much more.
I wish all the ladies of the Inner Wheel club of Kampala a successful year of giving and Service Above Self!
God bless you.
