UMUAHIA – The newly installed president of Rotary Club, Umuahia North District 9142, Nigeria, Rotarian Ekele Ochiabuto, has assured Abians of the readiness of the club to continue to empower them through the club’s micro credit scheme.
Speaking in Umuahia shortly after taking the mantle of leadership as the 4th president of the club, Ochiabuto expressed the hope that the beneficiaries of the scheme would be lifted from their current economic state to live a better life.
The microcredit scheme beneficiaries of the club’s economic and community development project included Oluchi Iroegbu, Dorothy Chinenye Chidowe, Chinatu Stella Ofoegbu, Nwakauru Enyeribe and Adanma Okezie, who received N20,000 each.
Ochiabuto said, “What we have done today is our little way of giving back to society in a bid to connect the world.
“As Rotarians, it will not be good enough to give only what we have left over or what we can spare, but we must truly give of ourselves with new vigor in support of the ideals of Rotary.
“We hope that the beneficiaries of our microcredit scheme will be lifted from their current economic state to live a better life. By so doing, we are keying into one of the Rotary’s areas of focus which is economic and community development, and this is the joy we share in Rotary”.
