On the 19th of August 2023, an aura of enthusiasm and purpose enveloped the Western Zone 2, 3, and 4 Rotaract clubs as they had the distinct honor of hosting District Governor Rtn. Francisco Ssemwanga from D9214. The significance of this visit was profound, as it marked not only a meeting with dedicated Rotaractors but also the launch of the REI Ntungamo edition in the western region.
The visit kicked off with a poignant tree planting initiative across three different locations: Children Peace Park CPP, Ntare School, and Innovation
Village. A total of 100 trees were planted, symbolizing the deep-rooted commitment of Rotaractors to environmental sustainability and community betterment.
An enlightening symposium centered around environmental issues was the highlight of the day, coinciding with the celebration of International Youth Day. This session, expertly led by Innovation Village, delved into the pressing matters concerning our environment and engaged young minds in meaningful discussions about their role in its preservation.
During his impactful speech, DG Rtn. Francisco Ssemwanga urged club presidents to proactively seek district grants, fostering sustainable initiatives that resonate with Rotaract’s core values. He emphasized the significance of encouraging Rotaractors to actively participate in district activities such as DCA, REI, and the Western Meger Fellowship. The importance of the district’s focus on polio eradication was reiterated, with an impassioned call to comprehend and align with the district’s goals.
A sage piece of advice was dispensed to all present: the notion that decisions made today hold the power to shape the future. This resonated deeply, reminding Rotaractors that their actions today pave the path for impactful tomorrows. The visit culminated in a final tree planting ceremony at Innovation Village, encapsulating the essence of growth, sustainability, and collective responsibility. In closing, a heartfelt acknowledgment was extended to Rtn. Sankara, representing Innovation Village, for graciously hosting DG Rtn. Francisco Ssemwanga’s visit. The gratitude expressed encapsulated the spirit of unity and appreciation that thrives within Rotaract circles.
