On Saturday 9th June 2018, members of the Rotary Mariners of East Africa – Uganda Fleet, affiliated to the International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians (IYFR) visited an informal group - the Buhadyo and Mikombe Mariners Group in Butaleja, Eastern Uganda on the invitation by the group to find out about its developments since inception in 2015.

The initial objective was to improve on the safety and transportation on the water body connecting Butalejja to Kibuku District. It takes more than an hour to cross over, wading through the water hyacinth, on make-shift trunks (boats) that are curved out of long tree branches. These small “boats” carry up to five people if there is cargo/luggage (cattle and bicycles). The transportation system is also a challenge for school going children, so it’s the teachers who cross over to go to teach.

My Family of Rotary: The Rotary Year 2017-2018 ends on June 30, 2017. This is my last monthly message as your District Governor. As I said in my May message, I had an amazing journey as your District Governor. My Rotary wheel has come full circle at the District level. I am now going to be a Past District Governor.

On the Rotary calendar, June is Rotary Fellowships Month. Fellowship is a great theme this month as each leader plans to pass their responsibility to the new leadership. I wish our incoming leaders 2018-2019 the very best. As we plan to start the new year, it is important that we reflect on our Rotary journey during the Rotary year 2017-2018. If you failed to give support, it is now time to reflect on why you joined Rotary. Rotarians are supposed to be fully committed to helping others in addition to having fun, but most important Rotarians should make a difference.
