Dear friends,

Warm Inner Wheel Greetings!!
Congratulations to all of us as we are entering in the 100th year of International Inner Wheel. It is a proud feeling that we are members of such an organization which has completed its century of service to humanity. Isn’t it a great feeling that likeminded women folk from more than hundred countries are working with a motto of Friendship & Service. Inner Wheel gives you Passion, a Passion to serve. Make Inner Wheel your Passion……

We should focus on the areas where IW has not reached yet. Educate and empower women & give them training on Skill Development. Provide them professional and Certified courses, to make them self sufficient. Arrange short courses for IW members along with all the ladies around about Digitization. Focus on Girl child education & their good health.

The IIW theme of Centenary year is Shine a Light. We have to shine a light in the lives of underprivileged. IIW President Trish Douglas wants us to focus on the awareness about mental health. She wishes to Guide & Provide support to All those who are struggling with mental health issues. She has suggested to develop public places like Parks ,Libraries ,Schools & Playgrounds for branding of InnerWheel.

Shine a Light’ on all the projects we will be doing in this very special year ahead. ‘Project Brighten Lives’ – A centenary project to celebrate 100 years of Inner Wheel. Assist senior citizens in health care camps through cataract surgery, physiotherapy sessions etc.

Our Association President Preeti Gugnani has given us the goal of Trail Blazer. We are “ Trail blazer……”.Who dares to take the first step & Make her own path and leave a trail. Try to touch all the 11 avenues of Trail Blazer.

Under Inner Wheel India Literacy Mission [IILM] provide facilities to schools . Each club should try and make at least one happy school. Arrange awareness programs in schools and colleges to end the violence against girls and women . You can arrange Sports meet, Career guidance camps for youth.

Friends, we all are members of our respective clubs for many years but still very few people know about Inner Wheel. Please do not hesitate to give proper information about Inner Wheel to your friends & family. Motivate them to join the Inner Wheel clubs in their vicinity.

Let us undertake projects based on Association Goals, District Thrust Areas & also take up the Continuity Projects of your respective clubs. We should be updated with IIW , Association Bye Laws & GUIDELINES & Protocols in Inner Wheel.

‘Shine your light and make a positive impact on the world; There is nothing so honorable as helping improve the lives of others.’- Roy T. Bennett
