DISTRICT 9125 NIGERIA GOALS & OBJECTIVES
As a District, we have outlined three goals for the Rotary Year.
To increase the number of clubs and members in our District.
To engage Clubs in Bigger, Better & Bolder Service Projects across the District and
To increase the District’s contribution to The Rotary Foundation.
To this end, the District has initiated a strategic plan to drive these areas of focus. Additionally, in alignment with the Reach out To Africa (ROTA’s) Vision and Mission, this plan has incorporated the 5 areas of strategic focus of ROTA.
INCREASE MEMBERSHIP GROWTH SUBSTANTIALY
The principal emphasis of membership growth is to ensure that the district achieves redistricting by the 2017-18 Rotary Year.
This project as envisaged aims at 2 new Districts from the existing structure. District 1 would be the South Western States of Ekiti, Ogun, Ondo, Osun, Oyo plus Kwara and Kogi States. While District 2 would be Abuja FCT, Niger, Nasarawa, Plateau, Benue State, and all the other North Eastern & North Western States. .
Whilst annual growth of members is fundamental, membership growth has been made a top priority from 2014-2017. The goal is to generate a net increase each and every year by bringing in our family, friends, associates, and colleagues that way we will have 50 new clubs and membership strength will tilt above 4,000 by June 30, 2017..
ENGAGE CLUBS IN BIGGER, BETTER & BOLDER SERVICE PROJECTS THE DISTRICT.
One sure fire way of subtly but effectively driving Rotary into the consciousness of the populace is for clubs to plan and executepurposeful community service projects. This is especially true in locations where people are apathetic towards Rotary. Properly sited and operative projects will speak for Rotary and this will particularly compliment our planned Public Image and media Relationsefforts. Clubs will therefore be encouraged to take full advantage of theDistrict Dedicated Funded projects as well as Global Grants for Better, Bigger and Bolder Projects.
Partnership with Rotary clubs and Districts in other countries is an obvious strategic advantage in projects. To achieve these, exchange programs are being organized every quarter for inbound and outbound teams: specifically we shall:
Organize Youth Exchanges for study-abroad
Organize District and Club Rotary Friendship Exchanges
Partner with clubs to execute Global Grants in the six area of focus
TO INCREASE THE DISTRICT’S CONTRIBUTION TO THE ROTARY FOUNDATION and BE INVOLED IN ROTARY INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS.
Supporting the Rotary Foundation’s efforts in changing lives and doing well in the world is the essence of being a Rotarian. We shall continuously echo The Rotary Foundation as the sustaining arm of the organization and allows us to turn minute donations into substantial endeavors that impact people positively.
Through the work of our local clubs, we shall leverage charitable donations to engage our global network of friends, associates and individual Rotarians.
In addition to increasing contribution to the Rotary Foundation, we would maximize participation in all Zone 20a Programs and the International Convention in Seoul South Korea.
Furthermore, we would ensure maximum utilization of resources from RI and TRF beyond financial.
We shall use ICT for effective Rotary education and ensure members visit and use all this resources as available on the website.
