No doubt we are facing a fast-changing world in these couple years.  Instead of viewing this as an adversity, I see this as an advantage we are building for ourselves.  We have become so comfortable switching between online and on-site meetings as the situation calls for.  Staying flexible is the key to adapt and retool so as to fit into the new norms.  We need to rethink our service delivery model.  

在這數年間,我們毫無疑問面對著一個變化迅速的世界。我沒有將此視為逆境,反而我視之為可以建立我們優勢的契機。隨著不同的需要,我們從戰戰兢兢嘗試用Zoom, 到現在舉辦各種現場混合線上的會議已變得遊刃有餘。保持靈活性是適應和重組以配合新常態的關鍵。我們需要重新檢視現行的服務模式。

District 3450

20th February 1931, the day Rotary first set foot on our home soil. The first Rotary Club, namely the Rotary Club of Hong Kong, was established under Charter President Sir William Woodward Hornell, who was also the vice-chancellor of the University of Hong Kong at that time.

After operating for 10 years, it was suspended during the Pacific War, but revived in 1946. Later on, the Rotary Club of Hong Kong sponsored the Rotary Club of Macau in 1947 and the Rotary Club of Kowloon in 1948. Back then, they were part of District 96, and subsequently, changed to District 57 in 1950. However, our district status was removed in 1951 under the new regime in China.

Efforts to revive Rotary and setting up new clubs came with a result on 1st July 1960, with 17 Rotary Clubs, 764 Rotarians from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan were reinstated as District 345.

In 1991, District 345 was renamed to District 3450 with 32 clubs from Hong Kong and Macao. Nine years later, new clubs in Mongolia were underway, and District 3450 then included members from Hong Kong, Macao and Mongolia.

Ninety years after the first Rotary Club in Hong Kong in 1931, District 3450 now has 81 clubs in Hong Kong, 8 clubs in Macao and 18 clubs in Mongolia. Over 2,600 Rotarians serve the world.

What is Rotary

Rotary was founded on 23 February 1905 by a Chicago attorney, Mr. Paul P. Harris, as the world's first service organization.

As a 1.2 million-member organization, Rotary united business and professional leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations to provide humanitarian services and help build goodwill and peace, while encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations.

Rotary brings together great minds from nearly all over the world. Our members are leaders in their fields and communities. This diverse perspective helps us to see problems differently—and help us solve them in communities throughout the world.

Through Rotary, our members find many ways to meet, exchange ideas, and make lifelong friendships, including:

  • Weekly club meetings
  • Service projects
  • Fellowship events
  • Annual celebratory events, such as District Conference, International Convention, etc.
  • Interest-based affinity groups

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, from over 35,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries, Rotary’s people of action have always been so dedicated and persistent in providing service to those in need, promoting integrity, and cultivating goodwill and peace throughout the world. We certainly covered a lot of grounds with our projects regarding the quality of life on this planet. We concentrate our efforts in 7 areas of focus:

  • Promoting peace
  • Fighting disease and health problem
  • Maternal and child health care
  • Education
  • Local community and economy development
  • Water sanitation and hygiene
  • Protect the environment

When you give to Rotary, you support the work we do in your community and around the world.

Rotary Foundation

Rotary International (“RI”) is an international service organization where professional, businessmen and community leaders get together to serve to change lives through implementation of humanitarian service projects in local and oversea communities.
