THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

"The power of human empathy, leading to collective action, saves lives, and frees prisoners. Ordinary people, whose personal well-being and security are asured, join together in huge numbers to save people they do not know, and will never meet. Unlike any other creature on this planet, humans can learn and understand, without having experienced. They can think themselves into other people's places. We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. we have the power to imagine better."
- J K Rowling

Rotary Club of Kent Town
Rotary is a worldwide organisation of business, professional and community leaders. Clubs are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Richly rewarding, Rotary gives you the opportunity to pay it forward and to have a positive impact wherever you choose

Getting Involved
While developing business networking opportunities and building life long friendships Rotarians experience personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.

The magic of Rotary is that it allows ordinary people to achieve the most extraordinary things. By using the powerful synergy of one, people unite to achieve exceptional change. Many ordinary members of Rotary have developed projects that have brought significant change whilst experiencing personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.
