EAC official takes reigns of Mount Meru Rotary club

MS Roselyn Kagaruki was at the weekend, declared the 23rd President of the Rotary Club of Arusha Mount Meru.

The East African Community (EAC) senior official takes over from Yves Nzeyimana, who is now the club’s Assistant Governor.

In her acceptance speech after being installed the President, the Tanzanian vowed to rope in more members to the group of problem solvers.

“At Rotary, your precious time is highly valuable than your money, which is why our number had risen from 19 to 26 as we expect to register more members in the near future,” she said.

Laying out her plans, Ms Kagaruki said the Club will focus on mental health, saying it was the vision of the President of the Rotary Club International.

She said: “The priority for Rotary International is for projects that support mental health.”

As Rotarians, he said they were invited to support the Rotary International President together with District Governor in achieving their goals in line with creating hope in the world.

This will also go along with supporting health centres in the city, such as St Elizabeth Hospital and boosting the region’s blood bank, according to Ms Kagaruki.

“The blood bank in Arusha is still insufficient, replenishing it will be among our priorities this year,” she disclosed.

Last year, the Rotary Club of Arusha Mt Meru celebrated 20 years of service above self.

Ms Kagaruki’s installation was preceded by a raffle and an auction where some 2m/- was raised for Baby Nafisa, a young baby girl awaiting medical attention in India.

Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem- solvers who see the world as the place where people unite and take action to create lasting change in their communities, and in themselves.
