Rights of women and children featured in July 13 meeting

The guest speaker at the clubs regular meeting last July 13 was Ms Salvacion Shiot Pascual, noted researcher, writer, and lecturer on womens and childrens rights. Shiot spoke lengthily about Republic Act No 9262 otherwise known as the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act of 2004. The act underscores the need to protect the family and its members especially women and children against violence and threats to their personal safety and security. Shiot cited disturbing true-to-life cases of violence where women and children suffered from physical/sexual violence, psychological/emotional harm, and economic/financial abuse. The discussions were made even more informative as former barangay chair Rtn Neneng Valmocina related actual cases of violence against women and children happening within our own community. Among those present during the meeting was AG Rose Imperial who expressed interest in inviting Shiot to assist in her clubs outreach programs in Loyola Heights.

RI Presidents August 2011 Message

My dear brothers and sisters in Rotary, There is an old saying in India: When you help your neighbors boat across the water, you find that your own has reached the shore. By helping others, we often find that we have helped ourselves as well. Each of us came to Rotary to serve and found the joys and satisfactions of friendship and fellowship. In August, the month we dedicate to membership and development, we focus on spreading the message of Rotary. By serving well, without hiding our Rotary light under the proverbial bushel, we find ourselves closer to our own goal: a stronger, more vibrant Rotary for generations to come. Public image and membership go hand in hand. Too many people intelligent, educated, involved people simply have no idea what Rotary is. This is something we need to confront. We have heard again and again about communities where, despite all the good work that Rotary clubs do, many people are unaware that those clubs even exist. This is not the way forward for our organization. Serving well is the essential first step but it is only the beginning. We have to raise our profile with all the tools that are available to us, and there are more tools today than there ever were. We have to use social media such as Twitter and Facebook, and we have to be sure our clubs have an online presence. Having a website is not enough; it must be up to date, it must be appealing, it must reflect the work we are doing. And it must offer a way for prospective members, once they see what we do and become interested, to take the next step. Rotary has so much to offer. It is up to us to let others know what a fantastic organization we have, and to show people how they can integrate Rotary into their lives. Service does require time, and time is something nobody has enough of these days. So we need to ensure that all the time we spend with Rotary is worthwhile that it is rewarding and never wasted. When we reach within ourselves and our clubs, when we learn what we are capable of and harness that power, we will elevate our communities as never before and elevate Rotary as well. Kalyan Banerjee - President, Rotary International
