With all the negative media publicity about almost everything, it is difficult sometimes to acknowledge that we have a privileged life.

It may be a little easier to accept that when we reflect that 20,000 children under five die each day due to preventable diseases mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.

Then, one may ask why should I bother am I brother's keeper?

Rotary is exactly that. We believe that we are our brother's keepers. We must do everything possible to help those who are less privileged than ourselves and find themselves in difficult situations for no fault of their own.

We have been involved with a community of 250,000 people on an island in Lake Victoria. We have gone there and helped to improve health care, education, water supply and sanitation. One of the most important thing we did there is to start a microcredit programme. This is at the heart of what we do - not to offer hand outs but offer a hand up.
