The Rotaract Club of Blantyre has inducted its newly elected president Julius Chapola and other members with a pledge of unwavering devotion to community service.
Rotaract Club of Blantyre is a service club for young men and women aged 18 to 30 who are dedicated to community and international service and is sponsored and guided by the Rotary Club of Blantyre.
Speaking at the Asian-themed induction dinner in Blantyre last week, Chapola pledged his commitment for the construction of a library at Ndirande Primary school as one of the many projects his committee will do during their tenure of office.
“We will work with the members of the club and the society at large in ensuring that the library at Ndirande Primary School is constructed and that the club’s devotion to community service is unwavering,” said Chapola.
The other committee members, who were inducted on the night, include Chinsinsi Nyirenda as secretary, Chikondi Mphonde as treasurer, Alinafe Gama as undraising chairperson, Atiji Phiri as public relations chairperson and Mbanangwa Kwilasya as community services chairperson.
There were also five new members who were inducted into the club namely Keiko Msusa, McHarven Ngwata, Felix Pachani, Hastings Thembakako and Flera Chimango Kulemero.
Guest of honour at the induction dinner, Mayor of the City of Blantyre Councillor Noel Chalamanda, commended the club for its service to the community.
“How inspiring it is to me and many that our generation can come together to conspire to do that which is noble: service to humanity. There remains potential in our country to do so much. It is upon us to take responsibility to turn the potential into reality,” he said.
Among those who patronised the dinner were the newly inducted president of Rotary Club of Blantyre Omega Mulwafu, members of the Rotary Club of Limbe, employees of Escom and Marsh Limited and Blitz Interactive Agency who bought corporate tables as one way of fundraising for the library project at Ndirande Primary School.
