2014-15 President's Greeting
Welcome to the Website of The Rotary Club of the Howe of Fife.
The leadership team for Rotary Year 2014-15 is prepared for another challenging year. The emphasis this year will be on continuing to match our efforts of last year in raising funds to continue our work in the local communities, assisting the local charities we support, and in helping young people in the the Howe. To keep up our giving we need to raise what are significant sums for a small club in a rural area. As President I know I can rely on the same enthusiastic support of the members and importantly of all the people in our communities and beyond who contribute to our work. The Rotary Foundation provides funding for international projects to promote understanding, goodwill and peace by improving health, education and alleviating poverty. Foundation runs specific funds for Disaster Recovery and the Eradication of Polio. Our annual contributions to the Rotary Foundation make up about half of what we commit overseas. Most of our remaining international spending is directed to Chimwemwe, a Children’s Centre in Malawi which gives support to children and their families suffering from or affected by HIV/AIDS. One of our members, Dr Amanda Fleet, is a co-founder of Chimwemwe, and we are delighted to be helping with he development and construction of a permanent base for the charity.
If you would like to learn more about us, just come along any Tuesday evening to the Village Inn, Pitlessie. Talk to some of our members over a drink or join us for a meal. I promise you a warm welcome.
