The Rotary and Rotaract Clubs of Brusubi recently inducted new members as they celebrated 5 years of community service at a ceremony held at a local restaurant in Bijilo.

The humanitarian club seeks to serve their community, advocate for goodwill and fellowship, while inculcating high ethical standards.

Speaking at the ceremony, Rohey A. Jobe, out-going president of Rotaract Club of Brusubi thanked members of the club for their support and achievements registered thus far, amid the challenges posed by Covid-19 pandemic.

"We organised a fellowship activity at Ninki Nanka Beach and also a club iftar to socialise. We also assisted and participated in an international project called Secret Santa involving 75 countries worldwide in which the club represented The Gambia.” she said.

In order to gain more knowledge about Rotary and Rotaract, she encouraged all to participate in district training and assembly confab to be able to maintain the long lasting unity that exists within the club.

Ramatoullie Ojikutu, the newly elected president of the Rotaract Club of Brusubi expressed honor and gratitude to make a little impact in the lives of her fellow members.

She said leadership is the ability to serve selflessly and something that is within the mentorship of Rotary International.

"It is quite known that the incoming presidents or leaders disclose their plans and intention for their tenure of action for 2021/ 2022.” she said.

Omar J. Jallow, the newly elected president of Rotary Club of Brusubi said Rotary is about rendering humanitarian service to the community, indicating that service to humanity is something you do for the benefit of others without expecting anything in compensation.

Rotarian Jallow thus urged young people to get involved in the work they do as most of the members are ageing and need replacement.

He thanked his club members for the confidence and trust reposed in electing him as the president of the club for 2021/2022, further assuring that he will do his utmost to ensure that the humanitarian service provided registers more gains in the coming years.
