“Watch this space,” says Manoj Karsan, the new president of the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South.

With no election hullabaloo or unachievable promises Karsan was elected as the 43rd president of the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South. He is the successor to outgoing president, Marilyn Klassen.

Manoj has already started leading the Rotary Club to continue partaking in various service and upliftment projects amongst the Uitenhage/Despatch communities in need through a programme based on fun and fellowship. This is done through aligning the Club with the Rotary International goal for 2016-2017 of “Rotary Serving Humanity”, whilst continuing to embrace the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self”.

Among the achievements of the Rotary Club during Past President Klassen’s year which was of particularly significance to her, was the establishment of a Rotaract Club for people under the age of 30. This club has already made its presence felt in the Uitenhage/Despatch area with the motto of “Service To Others”.

Another noteworthy accomplishment of the club in the past year, was the provision of warm items and blankets to more than 3 000 people in need, where a substantial international sponsorship was received from BASF.

  • Manoj is proud to be leading the Club forward.
