Dear Rotarian,

March is here. It’s one month to the 94th District Conference and Assembly (DCA).  DCA is one of the highlights of our Rotary calendar year. In this edition, we bring some of the speakers lined up for the DCA to give you a small glimpse of what’s in store for you. You dare not miss!  

The theme for March is Water and Sanitation, one of Rotary's areas of focus. And it also marks the Rotaract Week. And on that note, our inspiring Rotarian, all the way from Australia, has been recognized for his role and hard work in organizing Rotary Youth Leadership and Interact Boot camps that were held last month and early this month in Tanzania. They were super successful and impacted positively on the lives of hundreds of young people who attended including Interactors. This is none other than Sebastien Cox.  

We also bring our usual round up of activities at the district. We feature a massive and hugely successful medical camp organized by the Rotary Clubs of Kololo-Kampala, Lukaya and Masaka. Over 1,500 people from far and wide arrived at the camp and received treatment for various ailments. Rotarian Denis Jjuuko, President from the Rotary club of Kampala Naalya, Uganda, builds a case for supporting the Gift of Life International and Rotary efforts to raise funds for heart surgeries for children at the one and only heart institute at Mulago. We also feature visiting Rotarians from UK who were in Tanzania to interact with Rotarians and to visit their projects. 

March is also important for the gender movement as the world marks International Women’s Day. Women Rotarians from Rotary clubs of Dar es Salaam, Dar es Salaam- Mikocheni and the newly chartered Rotary club of Dar es Salaam – Sunset, are organizing a fun dinner event for women Rotarians and their family and friends. The aim is to create a space to celebrate women and raise funds to change girls' lives. We shall bring you more on the event and how it went down in the next Wave. Keep tuned in.
