Rotary Club of Rudramati Kathmandu, club no. 64062 chartered in December 2003, envisions to build communities for the common future of all by developing new sense of leadership. Following the guiding principles of Rotary International, RC Rudramati Kathmandu is working to better our community from literacy to growing economies to health and water. The Club serves people without regard to their ethnic, political, or religious belief and we help people in need, especially those most vulnerable such as women, children, youth and the elderly.
Provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace
Build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of all
Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe
Dear fellow Rotary member:
In Rotary, we celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). It does not matter who you are, who you love, how you worship, whether you have a disability, or what culture or country you are from. What matters is that you want to strengthen communities and take action to create lasting change.
Rotary, with input from our DEI Task Force, has strengthened its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The result is a greater focus on DEI, through which we celebrate each person’s contributions, advance equity, and create an inclusive culture where every person knows they are valued. DEI is not just a recommended practice. It is necessary to Rotary’s success in providing meaningful leadership, networking, and service opportunities today and in the future.
During 2022-23, I encourage all of us — as individuals, in our clubs, and in our districts — to exemplify our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We can each do our part to advance DEI by:
1. Learning more about DEI in Rotary
2. Determining why DEI matters in our own club and our own area, and how using these principles can help our club grow and make it stronger
3. Raising awareness and increasing understanding about DEI
4. Taking action on DEI in our clubs and in our communities
In this brochure, you’ll find a sampling of things you can do for each of these steps. Use the suggestions to spark your own ideas and bring your unique perspectives and experiences to this vital endeavor.
So much of what will help your club, your district, and Rotary itself achieve our goals depends on this. With a strong commitment to DEI and good strategies, we can create more meaningful leadership, networking, and service opportunities for all of us. By embodying our DEI values, we can build stronger partnerships, plan more life-changing projects, and adjust more nimbly to our evolving world. If we ensure that everyone who interacts with us feels welcome, respected, and valued, we’ll make Rotary more rewarding for all of us. We must make sure that each person is fully heard and appreciated. Each of us must be given the same opportunities to succeed, to lead, and to make an impact through Rotary.
Imagine Rotary — Imagine DEI: Our efforts will increase our ability to lead within communities and around the world, will broaden acceptance of values that we hold deeply, and will expand our power to change the world for the better. We all have so much to gain from this effort. I can’t wait for us to take these steps together.
2022-23 Rotary International President
I stand before you, today, deeply touched and inspired by all the genuine sacrifices our past leaders made to lay the solid foundation upon which we build. I wish to extend my deepest respect and appreciation to all the leaders and Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Interactors of this district for their strong support.
We are visionaries, no doubt and we have opened unprecedented opportunities during the current year which are yearning for us to utilize adequately. With the Love of God which brings forth peace and understanding, I appeal to us to eschew all bitterness and rancor and behold the bigger picture which is our district. Let bygones be bygones. No lamenting the past, the only thing we need to do is look forward. Only then we will be able to ensure our family and members to join us on this remarkable journey and opportunity Rotary has provided us.
As we change guard, ushering in the new year 2022-2023, let us rededicate ourselves to do good to the world and Imagine Rotary in ways never thought of and visualized before.
Jennifer Jones, the first female President of the Rotary International in its 117 years of history, believes that we must practice Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness in everything we do. We have to inspire the coming generation to carry on the legacy of Rotary. To achieve this, we have to do things with an Impact. Engage with all our stakeholders and adapt ourselves to the changing environment.
Friends more than fifty years ago, one popular song was recorded that included this beautiful line:
You may say I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one.
Friends, we all have dreams, but acting on them is a choice. And it becomes our responsibility to make these dreams a reality.
Let us imagine a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.
We must not be afraid to take the risk as we embark in our Rotary Journey to do Good to the World.
In the end, this Imagine Rotary Year should be enjoyable to our family, members and us.
Sarita and myself and the entire District Team are with you every inch of the way to enjoy Imagine Rotary Year and to do good to the world.
"TOGETHER FOR A BETTER WORLD AND TOGETHER, WE IMAGINE ROTARY"
With Warm Regards

Dear Fellow Rotarians,
As we begin the new Rotary Year, we have so much to look forward to that will be exciting and challenging, unique and perhaps unprecedented but as stalwart and dedicated Rotarians we will rise to the occasion. Given that we are functioning during a pandemic we are unsure about a number of things but never unsure about the resilience and dedication of our Rotarian pledge of service above self.
Beginning the new Rotary year with thanking all fellow Rotarians of my club for bestowing their belief in me to lead, as the 20th President of our Club for Rotary year 2022-23.
Congratulations to IPP Rtn. Sharada Prasad Dhital and his team on successful completion of Rotary year 2021-22 and taking the club to greater heights inspite of the Pandemic lockdown constraints.The dedicated & passionate team of Directors and Members are my pillar of strength. We will endeavour to explore new avenues of opportunities in serving our communities.
In this journey with my team, following the “Rotary’s Ethical guide - the Four Way Test”, we will create all possibilities to “Imagine Rotary ”, aligning with Rotary Theme of this year. Friendship, bonding within Members, fellowship & service project will be the top most priority to make the club one big family, where each member has the sense of involvement and togetherness.
I start this journey seeking blessings, support and co-operation from all of you.
