T he Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST—The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

SECOND—High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

THIRD—The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;

FOURTH—The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The mission of Rotary International , a worldwide association of Rotary clubs, is to provide service to others, promote high ethical standards, and advance world understanding , goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

The Secretariat of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation (henceforth referred to as the “Secretariat”) is committed to four core privacy principles. We believe strongly that adherence to these principles of fair information practices is essential to our goal of maintaining trust with our member clubs, Rotarians and other individuals.

The Secretariat supports approximately 1.2 million Rotarians in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Rotary International is organized at the club, district and international levels to carry out its program of service. As part of its efforts to assist clubs and districts and facilitate communication with Rotarians and individuals about Rotary, the Secretariat collects sensitive and personal information.

Applying our commitment to fair information practices means that the Secretariat adheres to the following principles to protect data.

1. We Will Only Collect And Use Information For Core Business Purposes: Individual privacy is very important, so the Secretariat will only collect and use information needed to offer and fulfill our core business purposes. We will be lawful and fair to the individual whose data we are storing and will retain only what we need to maintain our relationship with them. This means we will not disclose information for an unrelated purpose without the consent of the individual or by authority of law.

2. We Will Strive For Data Quality: The Secretariat’s ability to successfully implement its mission is dependent on maintaining accurate information. We will strive to keep information we hold about Rotarians and other individuals accurate.

3. We Will Be Open About How We Use Data

4. We Will Act With A Sense Of Urgency on Potential Breaches: Accountability for protecting the people we serve is a shared responsibility at the Secretariat. We will promptly investigate and take the necessary measures to ensure that our established privacy protection practices are followed.

The Secretariat believes in the importance of safeguarding information that it collects about its member clubs, Rotarians and other individuals around the world, and has adopted this belief statement and these core privacy principles to reflect its commitment to privacy and data protection. All member clubs, Rotarians and other individuals are encouraged to practice these principles. The Secretariat puts its commitment to privacy protection into action through organizational policies, guidelines and internal procedures that are designed to protect the data of Member Clubs, Rotarians and other Individuals worldwide. In our efforts to ensure that we are acting as conscientious stewards of information, the Secretariat will periodically review its policies to confirm adherence to established practices.

For more information, about the Secretariat’s privacy protection practices contact the RI Privacy Committee at .

KUCHING: Pupils of SK Nanga Klassen are now able to go to school a little easier having received help from the Rotary Club of Kuching Central.

The club, Sri Aman Deputy Resident Des-mond Jerukan, and the state Education Department, have donated 20 bicycles to deserving pupils, and also provided deworming services and eye-screening tests for over 130 of them.

Rotarians, who were alerted to the plight of the pupils who had to walk long distances daily to school, were quick to offer their assistance.

SK Nanga Klassen is on the way to Engkilili, about 20km from Sri Aman.

The school has a total of 130 pupils, of whom 80% are boarders, while the rest live in nearby villages.

Speaking at a ceremony, Service Projects Committee chairman Alan Poh said: “Rotary’s focus on the younger generation is the key to nurturing an abundance of potential leaders of the future who will take over as our nation progresses.”

The 20 bicycles worth RM150 each were handed over by Poh to the headmaster Masan David Renang in the presence of visiting Rotary governor Zainie Abdul Aucasa from Kota Kinabalu, Rotary president Juergen Ertl, Desmond, past president Chieng Lee Ching, the school’s senior assistants Terry Ringgit and Nur Farhana.

Subsequently, a letter of intent was also handed over for the deworming and eye-screening tests which will be done at the school before the end of this month.

“I am very pleased that the Rotary Club of Kuching Central has been given this wonderful opportunity to do good for the local community.

“I thank past president Chieng for his commendable efforts in laying the ground work for this project,” said Ertl.

Zainie, who is visiting the various Rotary clubs around the country, also praised the Rotary Club of Kuching Central for its efforts, saying: “The club’s initiative in donating the bicycles is an excellent public relations exercise, which will benefit not only the club but also those in need.”

“I’m very proud to see that Kuching has such a strong, lively and vibrant club.”

KUCHING: Two ophthalmologists received Vocational Service Award from the Rotary Club of Kuching Central yesterday.


They were Dr Intan Gudom, state consultant ophthalmologist and head of the Ophthalmology Department at Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) and Dr Mohd Aziz Salowi, ophthalmologist with special interest in cataracts.


OVER TO YOU: Juergen (fifth right) symbolically hands over a bicycle to Masan. Zainie (fourth left) is one of those looking on.


Both, attached with SGH’s Eye Clinic, had consistently participated in the Rotary Avoidable Blindness project by doing cataract operations on the under-privileged of Sarawak.


They performed surgeries from 7.30am to 10pm during many of their weekends to help the less fortunate regain their sight.


According to public relations chairman of Rotary Club of Kuching Central, Andre Suharto, both Dr Intan and Dr Aziz spent their weekends providing free cataract operations for the people of Betong, Sri Aman, Serian, Lundu, Sematan and Pulau Bruit.


Andre said the recent session for Pulai Bruit early last month was particularly challenging as there was no medical facility on the island, and all 30 patients had to be transferred to Daro for the operation.


The vocational awards were presented by Rotary International District 3310 Governor Zainie Abdul Aucasa, witnessed by President Juergen Ertl and Service Projects chairman Alan Poh.


At the same ceremony, the Club presented SK Nanga Klassen, located some 20km from Sri Aman, with 20 bicycles that were meant for deserving students. The school also received assistance in de-worming and eye-screening for 130 primary school students.


President Juergen Ertl handed over the bicycles to headmaster Masan @ David Renang. For more information on Rotary Club of Kuching Central, visit
