“The Way Ahead –
Growth, Commitment & Fellowship”
District Theme 2014/15
Drive Growth, Encourage Commitment & Foster Fellowship
Dear Fellow Kiwanians,
First and foremost, I am happy to be elected and given the opportunity to serve as a District Governor for the term 2014-15. Thanks to the members of the Kiwanis family – my home club KC Petaling Jaya, all Past Governors, fellow Kiwanians and my family for their help, support and encouragement - not forgetting our International Trustees, district counselor, KI presidents and KI officers.
As Kiwanis celebrate 100years of service in 2015, we must continue our endeavor to make the Kiwanis organization even stronger in terms of increased number of meaningful service projects, membership growth, new club opening and increased clubs activities with ultimate objective to “Serve the Children of the World”.
One of Kiwanis Malaysia’s vision is “To be a highly reputable first-choice organization for volunteers to serve the Community and Children”. “First-Choice” because there are still many people who do not know the good work of Kiwanis while many are seeking to be part of an organization like ours. So in whatever we do, let us make conscious efforts to reach out to them. We must continue to welcome individuals and communities to join this global organization of volunteers to improve the world one child one community at a time.
Kiwanis Malaysia has plans to embark on many initiatives to keep the Kiwanis flag flying high. Essentially, we have completed a SWOT analysis, issues and opportunities prioritized, goals and objectives set of each officers. With that, we are certain that we can attain our goals.
Why are we doing the above for children and youth?. We are doing it because we care about them and we want to make it better for them. “Kiwanians Achieve Together what an individual cannot achieve alone”
Kiwanians are Individuals who have the desire to build a better community and enjoy the fun of working with others to achieve it.
In line with the Kiwanis Malaysia theme, “The Way Ahead – Growth, Commitment & Fellowship”, let us work hand-in-hand towards making this world a better place for “Serving the Children of the World” by growing the Kiwanis membership and service projects with Commitment and with Fellowship.
With that, I wish everyone a fulfilling and enjoyable year of Kiwanis service ahead.
Tan Eng Too
District Governor 2014/15
