Friends, what is Rotary? Tony C. Bautista District Governor 2012-2013

DG TONY AT RLI

My dear friends and fellow Rotarians, Friends, what is Rotary? When I ask Rotarians this question, they often give me vague answers. And when I asked myself this question, I had to think a lot about it. The key to increasing membership, is for every Rotarian to be convinced that, it is good to be a Rotarian, and to convey that passion to others. I n Rotary, we have a tendency to be humble, and keep our achievements to ourselves. But we must share them, with those around us and with the world. Every Rotarian, has a specific moment that stands out, and has a special meaning. Some people refer to them as, their Rotary moment. I believe this is very important, to share this moments with others. Facts and numbers can only go so far, but sharing a personal experience, can open doors and build friendships. To strengthen Rotary, we need more members, but unless those members are convinced, of the benefits of the organization, and can share that passion with others, explaining Rotary won't be meaningful. If every Rotarian is happy, about being a Rotarian and spreads the word with a clear, unified message - if every Rotarian around the world, can be his or her relations department, the combined, collective effect will be enormous, and this will lead to an increase, in new membership and in member retention. I believe, that the purpose of every life, is to help others and contribute to the society. Once Rotarians begin using their talents and capabilities, the world will become more aware, of how Rotary, is helping people live that way. I encourage all of you, to go out and tell the world, what our prestigious organization is doing, how we make lives better for all. This month being a New Generation Month, is a chance to tell the world how we share and celebrate Rotary with the youth.

President Elmer Hernandez inducted his eldest son Anton to Rotary in one regular meeting of the Rotary Club of Mabalacat. Anton, 22 years old and a practicing licensed civil engineer, is the youngest Rotarian in the club. He started to be interested in Rotary when he attended the induction of his father in June and was tasked to take photos of the event. Anton liked what he saw and asked his father to invite him to Rotary. After attending 4 meetings, he was inducted in August 2012 and proudly received the Rotary pin from his father. When Anton comes to the meeting, he makes a round of greeting the “elders” of the club by taking and touching their hands to his forehead - a Filipino practice of respect.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary's leadership training program for young people. RYLA participants can be ages 14-30, but most clubs and districts choose to focus on a narrower age range, such as 14-18 or 19-30. RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to Ÿ demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth Ÿ Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders Ÿ Encourage leadership of youth by youth Ÿ Recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you’ll spend up to a year living with host families and attending school in a different country. Whether you participate in Rotary’s long-term or shortterm Youth Exchange programs, you’ll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language.

fit equals value by PDG Oyan Villanueva

E

very single Rotary year we attend membership development seminars. We come up with attractive ways of inviting other professionals into our fold and yet, every single year as well, we lose almost the same number of those we recruited. There is no question that we do a good job inviting people into joining Rotary, but we cannot say the same about keeping them.

Rotary clubs are just like business enterprises trying to sell its products to potential customers. The basic reason to buy is if a product addresses a need or a desire. In our Rotary clubs, do we address our members’ needs and desires? Are our products, in this case our fellowship and community service projects, exactly what our customers want to buy? If a customer finds what he or she needs or desires in a product, that product suddenly acquires tremendous value. There is a fit between product and customer. Comparatively, if a Rotarian, potential or regular, finds what he or she needs or desires in a Rotary club, then there is a perfect fit. The greater the value, the better the fit, and vice versa. Perhaps 95 percent of club activities are in two areas. As such, we can say that they are, basically, the two products we offer: meetings for fellowship and projects for service. Weekly meetings Meetings are a club’s weekly showcase. For the longest time, we have been told to conduct club meetings under strict protocol, prescriptive rules and inflexible regulations. Often it feels that we cannot move anymore without violating a rule. Then we constantly complain of lack of attendance in our meetings. It is time to examine our weekly meetings from our customers’ point of view. Is this what they might want, something that would be attractive to them? It is also time to examine our weekly meetings from our members’ point of view. Are our weekly meetings exciting enough for us to attend them week after week? Do we give chance to everybody to be part of the programs and activities and give everyone a sense of belonging?

GOVERNOR’S MONTHLY NEWSLETTER September 2012


FIT EQUALS VALUE

Club meetings need not be expensive to be exciting. We simply need to offer what our Rotarians want. Start by examining the demographics and composition of present members and find out what will make them enjoy our meetings. In 1905 there were four people who got together because they simply wanted to have someone they can talk and relate to. We should not forget this original purpose of Rotary and start engaging our Rotarians with flexible and innovative meeting formats. To the oft-asked question, what is a quality Rotarian, my answer is always: “A quality Rotarian is a Rotarian that is having fun.” Fun meetings will cut across age, gender, and profession. It will have great value because fun fits everyone’s needs. Community Service Projects Our other showcase is our community service projects, great opportunities to rally and motivate the hearts of current and potential Rotarians. In Rotary, we have unarguably done countless projects serving the needs of all sectors of our community. We might just even be the best provider in the Philippines because of the sheer magnitude of our network. Which brings to the fore two questions: 1) Have we made a significant difference to the community that we serve? 2) Are we still eager to fork out an extra peso to sustain so many projects or are we already experiencing donor’s fatigue?

As of 7 September 2012

It is imperative to focus and plan community service projects to be more efficient and take into consideration sustainability. We become more motivated if we see the changes in the lives of the people we help. Planning is just as important as implementation. Have we involved all our Rotarians in our service projects? Being part of the success of any endeavor is a reward by itself. When a Rotarian sees this value, giving more can be easily motivated. If you always do what you you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got. Because of the same programs that we do again and again we get the same NOTE: As of 17 Sept 2012, D3790 is 99% SAR payment results again and again. I challenge all Rotarians to compliant. Waiting for Subic Sunrise to pay SAR and innovate and look beyond the obvious. The changes we have D3790 make history! want are right in front of us. Focus internally and see how weekly meetings and community service projects can be innovated. Create value for current and future Rotarians. Find what fits their needs. Always aim to improve our products to make them relevant to the people we target to buy into our Rotary Clubs. Remember: “The greater the fit, the greater the value.”

RI President's monthly message, September 2012 Dear fellow Rotarians,

M

any of you know that we now have five Avenues of Service in Rotary. The fifth, and newest, is New Generations Service. There are many ways to serve through this avenue, and you will read about some of them in this month's issue. All of the work we do to educate children, to improve maternal health, to help families live healthier lives – all of this is service to New Generations. We also serve New Generations by working to eradicate polio, helping to ensure that future generations of children will be born into a polio-free world. Our youth and young adult programs, such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange, are a very important part of this Avenue of Service. We must remember that the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. By helping to develop young leaders and bringing younger members into our clubs, we strengthen communities – and Rotary's future. For most of my life, I have been a salesman. I learned long ago that being a good salesman is not enough. You must also have a good product. If you are a good salesman, you will make the first sale. But if you do not have a good product, you will make only the first sale. You will not make the second.

GOVERNOR’S MONTHLY NEWSLETTER September 2012

It is not enough to bring new members into Rotary. We want them to stay. We want the new, young members to become longtime members. We want them to be Rotary leaders in 10, 20, or 30 years. How do we do this? We have to look at our product. We have to look at Rotary not with our own eyes, but with new eyes. When we invite a new member to join and that person's answer is no, we should ask why. This is not to pressure someone into joining. It is to find out more information. What are the obstacles to membership? Is it an inconvenient meeting time? Is it too much of a time commitment? Is it something else that we have not thought of? We need to ask questions, and we need to open ourselves to the answers. We cannot say, "No, we will not do this," just because we have never done it before. Why not have child care at a meeting? Why not involve families in projects? Why not make attendance requirements less strict, or meet less often? Our new Avenue of New Generations Service is an important step in ensuring many future generations of Rotary, and of Service Above Self. Sakuji Tanaka President, Rotary International


Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair's monthly message, September 2012

Highlight our Foundation's good work

I

n July, I outlined the goals that your Rotary Foundation has set for 2012-13. In August, I emphasized that while it is essential to have goals, we can't achieve them without a plan. Many clubs and districts are off to a flying start and have both goals and a plan, and I offer them my sincere congratulations. However, nearly 50 years of experience in Rotary suggests to me that a much greater number are only starting to plan now. I would like to offer some ideas. Every club should have a meeting that highlights the good work that our Foundation is doing. Perhaps it is a report on a recent Matching Grant project, Group Study Exchange, or vocational training team, or a talk by a former Rotary Peace Fellow or Ambassadorial Scholar. Perhaps Rotarians in your club or district have participated in a National Immunization Day and have seen firsthand the work to End Polio Now. After you have made the case for our Foundation's work all over the world, it is essential that you ask for both physical and financial support. How about discussing local Foundation projects? Inviting every member to contribute? Inviting non-members to contribute? Presenting the opportunity to become Paul Harris Fellows, Major Donors, and Bequest Society members? Perhaps your meeting on the Foundation will be so effective, it will inspire an individual to become a member of the Arch C. Klumph Society. My request is that every Rotarian do something, and more important, encourage others to do something. The world needs Rotary, but Rotary needs like-minded people to join us as we continue Doing Good in the World. Wilfrid J. Wilkinson Foundation Trustee Chair Source : Rotary International Courtesy : www.eflashonline.org

The Plan

FUTURE VISION

I

n anticipation of The Rotary Foundation’s 100-year anniversary in 2017, the Trustees set out to develop a plan to move the Foundation toward its second century of service. The plan reflects the desires and interests of Rotarians worldwide to give the Foundation a more sustainable and visible impact in the world. The plan is simple and flexible, allowing Rotarians to apply for grants online. The Future Vision Plan is intended to Ÿ Simplify Foundation programs and processes consistent with the mission Ÿ Focus Rotarian service efforts where they will have the greatest impact by addressing priority world

needs that are relevant to Rotarians Ÿ Offer funding options to help achieve both global and local goals Ÿ Increase the sense of ownership at the district and club levels by transferring more decisions

to the

districts and their member clubs Ÿ Advance understanding of the Foundation’s work and enhance Rotary’s public image

The Grant Structure

T

o simplify the grant-making process, the Future Vision Plan offers only two types of grants: Rotary Foundation District Grants and Rotary Foundation Global Grants. Together, these grants will allow clubs and districts to carry out a broad spectrum of humanitarian and educational efforts, both locally and abroad. District Grants Rotary Foundation District Grants are block grants made to districts to support activities that fit within the Foundation’s mission. Districts can use these grants to fund scholarships, support vocational teams, sponsor volunteer service, provide disaster recovery assistance, and carry out community and international service projects. District grants allow flexibility to Rotarians in carrying out grant activities and are fully funded through District Designated Funds. Global Grants Rotary Foundation Global Grants support larger projects with sustainable, high-impact outcomes within the six areas of: Ÿ Peace and conflict prevention/resolution Ÿ Disease prevention and treatment Ÿ Water and sanitation Ÿ Maternal and child health Ÿ Basic education and literacy Ÿ Economic and community development

12

GOVERNOR’S MONTHLY NEWSLETTER September 2012

Clubs and districts can either create their own global grant projects or sponsor packaged grants developed by The Rotary Foundation in collaboration with strategic partners. Club-and district-developed grants will receive a funding match from the Foundation. Packaged grants will be fully funded by the Foundation. The minimum total project cost for each global grant is US$30,000. Rotarians can develop a variety of global grant activities that may take the shape of a humanitarian project, a scholarship, a vocational training team, or any combination of these activities: Ÿ Humanitarian projects supporting the goals of the areas of focus will produce measurable outcomes that will benefit the targeted community long after grant funds have been expended. In addition, the community, as well as the sponsoring clubs and districts, will be actively involved in all stages of the project. Ÿ Scholarships will support international, graduatelevel study for a term of one to four years. The scholar’s academic and professional goals must further the goals of their selected area(s) of focus. Ÿ Vocational training teams* will either provide or receive training within the areas of focus. Team size and composition, as well as professional background, are variable; however, each participant’s career goals must be linked to the area(s) of focus. *VTT replaces GSE program.


VOCATIONAL TRAINING TEAM (VTT) The plan will roll out for all districts in 2013. These ideas can get your club and district started as you develop vocational training opportunities. Ÿ Both clubs and districts can develop and apply for global grants to fund vocational training under the Future Vision Plan. Ÿ Clubs and districts are free to develop as many global grants for vocational training as they wish in a given Rotary year. Consider the number of trainings appropriate for your area. Ÿ Communities can provide inspiration. Clubs and districts are encouraged to pinpoint their community’s needs and strengths within an identified area of focus when developing vocational trainings with other clubs or districts. Ÿ Teams may either receive or provide training. Capacity building is key. Ÿ Either a single team or multiple teams may travel on a global grant. You determine the number of teams needed for each grant. Ÿ Each team may center training on a different area of focus , if more than one vocational training team is traveling on a grant. Ÿ A minimum of one Rotarian team leader and three nonRotarian participants are required per team. There is no maximum team size. Develop your team according to the goals of your grant. Ÿ There are no age restrictions for participants. Instead, selection is based on expertise within the identified area of focus. Ÿ All participants on a single team must have careers linked to the goals of the grant , but they are not required to have the same professions.

Global grants must meet the US$30,000 minimum for total project cost, but this includes the expenses for the vocational training team as well as any other grant activities, such as humanitarian projects, scholarships, or additional teams. A Rotary Foundation District Grant can be used to support a vocational training team that's more like a traditional Group Study Exchange. The vocational training exchange can be with any district (pilot or nonpilot), and teams are not required to train within one of the areas of focus.

One Fine Saturday in September "Since majority of the clubs in Cluster 1-C is hosted by the City of Baguio, we see it only fitting that we give back to the community in the best way we know how – thru service" - AG Kenneth So

hrough the able leadership of the nine presidents of Cluster 1-C in cooperation with the Local Government of Baguio as facilitated in by Assistant Governor (AG) Kenneth So, a Medical Dental Program was conducted last September 8, 2012 at the Baguio Convention Center. The event was able to serve no less than 2528 patients which required medical attention and 514 dental beneficiaries. The event was done in partnership with the doctors of the Baguio Benguet Medical Society as spearheaded by Rtn Frederick „Tong? Untalan and the dentists of the Baguio Dental Association and the University of Baguio as coordinated by Rtn Edward Dogui-is. Support in the form of medicine was provided by the Victory Liner Bus Company and oral care packages through the generosity of the Lamoyan Group of Company?s Happee Toothpaste. o date, a total of 100 ShelterBoxes have been distributed and disaster relief tents set up on or near the survivors' land to enable them to continue to cultivate it and earn a living as well as begin to rebuild their lives whilst living in dignity.

This high impact project was proposed by President Jun Tabanda and President Ray Ruaro during the cluster?s first meeting for RY 2012-2013. The intent of the group was to showcase the capability of Rotarians in the cluster to work together in servicing the needs of the community. This activity was also in conjunction with the City of Baguio?s month long celebration of their Charter Anniversary. "Since majority of the clubs in Cluster 1-C is hosted by the City of Baguio, we see it only fitting that we give back to the community in the best way we know how – thru service" was the answer given by AG Kenneth So when asked why the cluster got itself involved in the activity. "Indeed, volunteerism is very alive in Baguio" was mentioned by Major Mauricio Domogan when he thanked the group in organizing the event for the city when he opened the activity which lasted from eight o?clock in the morning until five o?clock in the afternoon.

WHAT MAKES GOOD NEWS

Kudos to the Rotarian doctors from RC Baguio Summer Capital, RC Downtown Session and RC Baguio South who personally and tirelessly serviced the medical and dental needs of the community through consultations, medicine distribution and even minor dental operations. Also worth of praise was the x-ray facility and service rendered by RC Baguio and RC Baguio North. Clubs without doctors, like RC Metro Baguio, RC La Trinidad and RC Sagada, provided the much needed manpower for the smooth flow of the patient beneficiaries with the help of the Baguio-Benguet PICAG, a communication?s group who also volunteered their services. The New Generations was represented by the STI Rotaract Club of RC Baguio Sunrise

Note: A total of 46 Doctors, 34 Dentists from the Baguio Benguet Medical Society, Baguio Dental Chapter and the University of Baguio assisted the officers and members of Cluster 1-C in this Medical and Dental Mission.

Cluster 1-C is composed of the Rotary Club of Baguio, the Rotary Club of Baguio North, the Rotary Club of Baguio South, the Rotary Club of Baguio Sunrise, the Rotary Club of Baguio Summer Capital, the Rotary Club of Downtown Session, the Rotary Club of La Trinidad, the Rotary Club of Metro Baguio and the Rotary Club of Sagada.

Shelterbox started as a small project by the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard, England, in 2001, but it took off quickly. To date, it has raised £15 million and delivered aid in 33 countries. Recently, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla, agreed to serve as president of ShelterBox. She is believed to be the first Royal Patron of a Rotary club project in the United Kingdom. Each ShelterBox costs about US$1,000 and is intended to help a family of 10 survive for six months. It contains custom supplies that typically include a large tent, blankets, water purification and cooking equipment, basic tools, and a multifuel stove. Rotary clubs provide more than half the funding, and private donors contribute the rest.

MATHEMATICS MADE SIMPLE FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS September 08, 2012 Rtn. Lani Fabi Rotary Club of Baguio

R

tn. Naas Demyttenaere is a man of humility as you will never hear him flaunt or talk about his projects and his accomplishments. He is a dedicated Rotarian and his passion for Mathematics and fervent desire to improve the quality of basic education, focusing on math proficiency of teachers in the rural areas, paved the way for the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between Saint Louis University - STE (School of Teacher Education), Department of Education – Benguet Division, Municipality of Itogon and the Rotary Club of Baguio in November 10, 2010. This project which was conceived for 7 years will provide training for elementary school teachers starting off with grade one teachers, followed by grade two, then grade three and so on. For the period February 9, 2011 up to October 14, 2011, various organizational meetings, planning workshops, field exposures, exploratory discussions budget requirements to come up with the final proposal and training design for the Training of Trainers on Mathematics transpired. Hence, from October 17 – 19, 2011, the first Trainers Training on Mathematics was conducted with 3 workshop facilitators and 22 participants. The choice of Itogon District to be the recipient of this project was brought about by the consistent poor and low performance in Mathematics of students in the community as culled from the NEAT and NAT result obtained from the National Education Testing and Research Center in Pasig City. The seminar-

-workshop was led by Ms. Alma Bermudez, Ms. Aurora Suclad and Rtn. Naas Demytennaere. What's unique about the training was the use of non conventional tools such as beads, pebbles, square tiles, plastic bottle covers to focus and better appreciate how to do addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In October 26-27, 2011, Math Proficiency SeminarWorkshop took place for 54 participants from Preschool and Elementary Teachers of Itogon. Trainors and teachers from STE, Department of Mathematics, School of Computing and Information Science including Rtn. Naas Demyttenaere were at hand to share their expertise. The seminar introduced explorative techniques in teaching mathematics, enhance the teacher's knowledge and skills on how to make learning math fun and exciting to stimulate and maintain the interests of students and teach math concepts realistically and easily for students. Various meetings were held thereafter between November 14, 2011 up to March 02, 2012 to discuss


WHAT MAKES GOOD NEWS

the Extension Program and Pedagogical Support for Itogon Math teachers aptly titled “Better Education for Better Itogon”. From March 23, 2012 up to May 28, 2012, more meetings ensued to discuss and finalize Programs/Activities for SY 2012-2013. The first of a series of seminars for Academic Year 2012-2013 aptly titled Planning-Workshop in Materials Development and Instruction Preparation of Itogon Mathematics Teachers “Promoting Pupils' Potentials for a Better Itogon” pushed through as scheduled on June 16, 2012 with more than 50 teachers teaching Grade 1 Mathematics. Objectives of which are 1) to develop a proto-type lesson guide using meaningful strategies and 2) implement the lesson plan with appropriate instructional materials. Rotary Club of Baguio Officers and members namely President Libby Fernandez, PP Bert Talco, Rtn. Naas Demyttenaere, SAA Jun Bondoc, Sec. Baby Kaur and myself were in attendance. President Libby ensured the full support of RCB in this continuing literacy project for the welfare of the students. July 14, 2012 was a special day as we were fortunate to have our District Governor Tony Bautista together with AG Kenneth So visit Bua Learning Center in Itogon, Benguet to see for themselves where and how the trainings are being conducted. They were joined by DGE Linda Winter, Pres. Libby Fernandez, PE Uwe Koeller, PP Gerard Audineau, PP Diony Claridad, PP Bert Talco, Sec. Baby Kaur, EIC Marcel Badua and myself together with Dr. Marilyn Balmeo, Dept. Head of the Department of Professional Education and Dr. Feline Espique, Dean of School of Teacher Education of Saint Louis University.

eading requires practice however, hence the project was designed to be conducted twice a month in cooperation with the Rotaract Club of DMMMSU-MLUC. Filipino literature specifically Severino Reyes’ stories on fantasy and adventure more popularly known as “Mga Kwento ni Lola Basyang” (The Tales of Grandma Basyang) will be read by the Club’s very own Lola Basyang, Rtn Adora. The fairy tales of Lola Basyang sparked the Golden Age of Filipino Komiks and inspired Filipino movies and television shows. In particular, the picture books relaunched by Anvil Publishing Inc. and retold by Christine Belen will be used for the project. For this read-along session, the story Ang Binibining Tumalo sa Mahal na Hari revolved around a beautiful and intelligent maiden with whom a prince had fallen in love. Theirs was a forbidden love however, so the king gave the maiden three tests which she passed. They were then allowed to marry because the king recognized the maiden’s astuteness with which she will be able to help the prince rule the land.

How’s heaven, Steve?

Perfect, Bill. It’s just that it doesn’t have any wall or fence...

NOTES

W

hat we see on the left side are two famous friends talking. So many dialogues had been created for them to show their wit and closeness to one another. Below, I dug into my file and came out with some favorite faces in the district including our own DG. I invented a dialogue for them. Very soon, after the DNC, one face will add to our district history. Our DGNN. What does it take to be a Rotary Governor? He/she has to be like Steve and Bill in the picture - comfortable while leading, hardworking, healthy, inventive, and knowledgeable. And of course, well liked. We have placed in the hands of our DNC delegates the task of delivering the next leader. But naturally, we can always opt to have the final say.

So?

We don’t need windows and gates.

Going down to club level, a Steve or Bill in our midst would be a dream or a nightmare (with their workload, they would certainly miss attendance). Instead, let us focus on getting our own Steve and Bill. One who has time and enough resources and some sort of commitment to attend the weekly meetings, contribute to TRF, and participate in projects. Too much to ask? Impossible? No. The secret is to be good Rotarians not Rotarians in name only. Good attracts good. That is the way to grow. Not lengthy seminars. When people see that you do good, then they will want to belong. And soon the circle of good people (some are called Rotarians) will grow.
