WELCOME
Welcome to the website of Rotary District 9350 which covers the Angola, Namibia and the western half of South Africa. Our district comprises of:
 
  • 57 Rotary Clubs
  • 12 Rotaract Clubs
  • 102 Interact Clubs 
  • 46 Early Clubs
We are also the second largest district in Rotary International in terms of geographic spread (luckily our District Governor loves traveling!)
 
Meet Casper Kruger, our District Governor for 2018-2019. Casper was born in Oranjemund, Luderitz District, Namibia when Namibia was still part of South Africa so he is both Namibian and South African. He is married to Wilna (affectionately known as Tannie DG) and they have two children. 
 
He was the Charter President of the Helderberg Sunrise Rotary Club in June 2006, and again in 2017/18, and subsequently served the District as Friendship Exchange Chair, Assistant Governor and District Secretary.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
LATEST DISTRICT NEWS
 
“How to reach your Rotary potential and add value to your club” was the focus of this interactive seminar held on Saturday, 28 July 2018 at the Intaka Island Eco Activity Centre, Century City, Cape Town.  Well attended by 33 “newbies” and “oldies” from 12 clubs, the seminar appeared to hit the mark. The remark by Tsie Mogiogie of Claremont Rotary made my day - “wish that I could have attended a seminar like this five years ago when I first joined Rotary”. Due to popular demand, another “newbies” seminar is planned for early next calendar year.  Sincere thanks to our team who presented so professionally.
 
A strategy session facilitated by Peter Thomas, coordinated by Rotary Coordinator (South) Andrew Jaeger held at Kelvin Grove Club on Saturday, 21 July was a resounding success. Attended by a diverse group of 35 Rotarians and Rotaractors from five countries, three districts, it certainly hit the mark in content to achieve an excellent diversity and growth outcome for Zone 20A. DG Casper will share the content of the final report with clubs. We are excited to take these recommendations forward!

Wynberg Rotaract hosted the recent Rotaract Conference and chose to make personalised pencil bags filled with stationery for a local school. Our Rotaract Clubs enjoy hands on service projects and had loads of fun turning plain white pencil cases into unique works of art!  We forget how a simple set of stationery can make all the difference to a child's day at school and he/her ability to truly engage in their schoolwork. The Wynberg Rotaractors look forward to reaching more children in the furture with the assistance of Rotary Clubs across the District.

Hundreds of people braved the 14-degrees cold water and got "freezin' for a reason" at Victoria Bay on Saturday 28 July. Young and old enjoyed the festivities on the beach at the third annual dotsure.co.za Polar Bear Plunge. Garden Route businesses challenged each other to brave the cold for a chance to win R20 000 for a charity of their choice, and locals offered their support by donating blankets as an entrance fee to partake in the day.
 
George Rotarians were out in force and manned the refreshment tent dispensing 500 hot beverages and biscuits to those brave enough to take the plunge, and for their efforts, Rotary received their share of some 750 blankets which they promptly re-donated to the George child and family welfare clinic.
The Rotary club of Pinelands assisted the Oppie Koppie Crèche with tables and chairs for the learners in 2010. Since then, the Crèche has been oversubscribed for some time and needed to extend the building to cater for more children from this growing community. The Club answered the call for help and has since collaborated with the Rotary Club of Newlands and the Vuya Foundation to supply local children with the educational faclities they need.
