WeBlog – Rotaract: Inspiring new generations to service

 

 

Andrea Tirone

Andrea Tirone is a member of the Rotaract Club of the University of Toronto.

By Andrea Tirone, a member of the Rotaract Club of the University of Toronto, in celebration of World Rotaract Week 12-18 March.

When I joined Rotaract many years ago, our club’s president was phenomenal at getting everyone motivated for the basic health and literacy project we were establishing in Krishnanagar, India.

We began the InspiReacHope project, through a partnership with a local Rotary club and non-governmental organization. It was one of the most enthusiastic, driven, and focused groups of people I had ever met. The project lasted for many years.

As the club changed, so did our focus. We began efforts to prevent malaria overseas, to raise awareness of the basic water and sanitation needs of communities both around the world and at home in Canada, and became passionate about ending polio now.

In 2009, as an Ambassadorial Scholar in South Africa, I joined a local Rotaract club.  Through the Rotaract Club of Durban Berea, I participated in a community development project with nineteen other Rotaractors to Ponta D’Ouro, Mozambique.  In a very short amount of time, our group of young people came together to produce one of the most successful projects I have ever been a part of.

The Rotaract Club held two extremely popular fundraising events that featured local South African bands and DJs and welcomed crowds of up to 1,500 people; more than we ever imagined possible. With the funds that we raised, we were able to give the local school a major facelift and provide a number of Portuguese and English books to both the school and surrounding community.

Reflecting on World Rotaract Week 12-18 March, I realize that thanks to Rotaract, I have been a part of so many different projects which have addressed Rotary’s areas of focus. Rotaract helps pave the way into Rotary for future generations. I look forward to bringing my experiences to a Rotary Club in the near future.

WeBlog-India taken off the polio-endemic list

The World Health Organization (WHO) has removed India from the list of active polio-endemic countries, following a year in which the country reported no new cases of the virus. Ghulam Nabi Azad, India’s minister of health and family welfare, announced the decision during the Polio Summit 2012 jointly sponsored by the government of India and Rotary International, 25-26 February in New Delhi. Azad received a letter from Dr. Margaret Chan, head of the WHO, informing him that India’s name had been removed from the list. The wild polio virus remains endemic in three countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria.

WeBlog-12 Things You Can Do To Manage The Change In Your Life

6 Things you can do before massive change hits you

These are the things you can do before the change has hit you.

1-Clarify your Goals: Clarifying your purpose is the most important thing you can do to manage change in your life. If you have a clear idea about what do you want out of the circumstances you are most likely to get them. If you don’t have a clear idea about your goals then you will not know whether you are moving in a right direction or not. It is said-

“If you don’t know where you are going,. You will end up someplace else.” ~ Yogi Berra.

Your goals act as a beacon for your efforts and provide direction in which you would like to move.

2- Create a support network: A support network consists of people who are joined together for a common cause. They provide emotional and material support to each other when needed. It acts as a safety net and provides a great peace of mind. Some people are lucky to have great friends and family network. Some just have to create their own network. But it is very important to have people on your side to listen to you and provide you comfort when you need it the most. Many times you will find support groups organized around a specific need. One great way to find a group specific to your needs is to look for a meet-up group in your local area. So find your support group and be a part of it now.

3-Create an understanding of the situation: Find out as much as you can on your specific situation when you suspects. You may not all the information but you will get informed. Lack of information is biggest reason for fearing change. And fear of change is the biggest obstacle to managing change.

4-Make emergency and worst case scenario plans: Make emergency plans and the worst case scenarios. Look at all the options and see prepared for a worst case scenario. This is not about getting fearful or being afraid. Actually it is the opposite of that. Creating a plan simply provides a reassurance and frees your mind. As your attention is taking away from what will happen to the re-assurance that no matter what happens, you will be OK.

5-Create a level of comfort with change: Cultivate an attitude where change is a fact of life. Change will be present whether we like it or not. There are things that we can control and there are things that we have no control over. It is useless to fret over the things that you can’t control. It is said-

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” ~Reinhold Niebuhr

You develop a level of comfort with the change when you realize that the only things you have control over is your own attitude and your own response. The circumstances don’t matter your reaction to them does.

6- Manage the speed of change: Manage the speed of the change. Many a times the change itself is not a problem but how fast it overtakes us matters. So changing the speed of the change would make a significant difference in your well being. You can slow down the pace of change by removing the unessential in your life. Simplify your life by cutting the activities that don’t contribute to your goals. Anything that doesn’t create satisfaction or happiness in your life need to be reevaluated.

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak”~Hans Hofmann

6 Things you can do while facing the change

These are the things you can do after you have already been hit with the current of major changes in your life.

1-Don’t deny it and always face it: Denial only prolongs the inevitable and complicates the situation. Putting your head in the sand doesn’t work and it doesn’t change the situation maybe only for the worse. Facing a change situation might seem hard in the beginning but later on It pays big dividends. Facing it means being honest with yourself and admitting what is going on in your life.

2-Don’t project fear and past: Don’t assume that any big change is going to be bad. There could be many hidden opportunities that are presented as the part of the package. Don’t project fear and reach out of the past experiences. Sometimes the big changes provide us a way for a start a totally new and wonderful start in our lives.

3-Simplify and objectify: Don’t take more than you can bite. Even though the change may be huge and overwhelming, it doesn’t have to overwhelm you. Don’t add fuel to the fire by making panic decisions and adding more change on top of the existing changes that you are going through. The best way to do this is to look at the situation objectively. Postpone extra change and manage the pace of change. It becomes easier to look at the situation objectively if you write it down. Writing takes emotions out of the picture. And helps to focus on the essentials.

4-Take one bite at a time: Have a bigger plan but act with small steps at a time. Take one small step at a time. Move in the right direction with one step at a time. Once you have a firm grasp of the direction of your movement the bite sizes can be bigger. It is easier to focus on a small step at a time rather than trying to do too much at the same time. Moving too fast increase the risks and introduce disappointment and rejection.

5-Always focus on the positive outcome: Keeping a positive attitude is a must during the times of great changes. The attitude keeps you afloat when things look dark and gloomy. There are going to be negative thoughts going through your mind. It is good to remember that dwelling on the negativity doesn’t help your cause of moving out of it at all.

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

6-Use the support network: The could easily be the most important factor in terms of successfully facing a crisis of change. You may miss a strategy, you may not have a backup plan and you may have entirely misread the whole situation. But one thing that can compensate for all the setbacks is the support of your friends, family and your other support group. It is way easier to face the problem when we are together.

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” ~J.K. Rowling

I believe Rotary is every Rotarian’s “Passport to People” through the fellowship we share, and endless service opportunities available to us. For over 37 years, I have come to cherish this passport because it has taken me to people not only in my community but in distant countries and cultures.

My most recent trip to Sierra Leone is an example.

GOOD-BYE, POLIO: THANKS, ROTARY

In October, we observe  both World Polio Day and the birthday of Dr. Jonas Salk,  who developed the world’s first safe and effective vaccine against this crippling and sometimes deadly disease. We also celebrate the fact that the world is on the verge of eradicating one of the most feared diseases of the 20th century.
When Rotary launched its push to end polio in the 1980s, the wild poliovirus crippled nearly 1,000 people every day. Since then, Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative have reduced the incidence of polio by 99-percent. And the push continues: This year, India has the lowest number of polio cases in history. We are “this close” to ending polio once and for all.
Despite this tremendous progress, children in some developing countries continue to be infected. That’s why Rotary and its partners must reach every child in some of the most challenging regions of the world with the oral polio vaccine. But the greatest challenge to the polio eradication effort is a funding shortage.
In response,  Rotary is working to raise  US$200 million in response to  a $355 million challenge grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. All of the resulting $555 million will support crucial immunization activities in countries where polio still threatens children. Rotary club members worldwide already have raised $180 million of the $200 million challenge.
Over the past 26 years, Rotary’s 1.2 million members in 200 countries and regions have contributed more than $1 billion and countless volunteer hours to help immunize more than two billion children in 122 countries. Rotary also reaches out to governments worldwide to obtain vital financial and technical support. Since 1995, donor governments have contributed in excess of $8 billion to polio eradication, due in part to Rotary’s advocacy efforts.
The commitment of Rotary volunteers worldwide demonstrates the extraordinary role civil society can play in  improving global health.  Right now, in honor of World Polio Day, Rotary clubs around the globe are doing their part to raise awareness and critically-needed funds to vanquish the disease forever.
Once eradicated, polio will join smallpox as the only two human diseases ever eradicated, fulfilling Rotary’s  promise to create a polio-free world.
