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.

RI Pres. Nominee 2020-2021

Holger Knaack, a Member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, has been selected to serve as President of Rotary International in 2020-21.
 
The Nominating Committee’s decision follows the resignation last month of President-Nominee Sushil Gupta due to health reasons. Holger Knaack officially became President-Nominee ion  31 May 2019.
 
To build a stronger membership, Knaack says Rotary must focus on increasing the number of female members and transitioning Rotaractors into Rotarians. Knaack believes that the “People of Action” campaign offers new public awareness possibilities for Rotary. “This campaign conveys our global image while still respecting differences in regions and cultures,” he says.
 
A District Diversity Committee was launched at District Conference in 2018 and since then, members of the committee have been hard at work organising and facilitating conversations around the topic of diversity in Rotary. When we talk about diversity, we mean diversity of vocation, skills, gender, interest, ethnicity, religion and much, much more. Our guiding question is "How can we make sure that, whatever your background and context, you feel like there is a place in Rotary for you?"
 
It has become common practice for Rotary clubs around the world to Recognise VOCATIONAL EXCELLENCE of the highest order (especially in January which in Rotary's Vocational Service Month), and to honour outstanding contributions by individuals or teams of individuals for significant advancement in their vocational fields and service to their communities, In doing so they exemplify the Rotary model of “Service above Self.”  This is then recognised by Rotary’s Vocational Service Awards. These outstanding contributions also set an example to others, particularly the youth to strive for Vocational Excellence.
 
Rotary Am Kap were blessed to invite all kids and all teachers from their Signature Project, the Hangberg Pre-Primary School in Hout Bay, Hangberg Educational Trust to the Cape Town Aquarium for a day visit! It was such a great feeling to see over 90 kids and 15 teachers having such a joyful day - seeing and nearly touching sharks live, exploring the sea life as well as a very well organized kids show at the Two Oceans Aquarium. All kids behaved very very well - thanks to Tania and her amazing team!
