Goa hosted RI President K R Ravindran for two days in December. An interview with the President by PDG Jorson Fernandes was telecast on the local TV channel, which threw light on various aspects of Rotary ranging from its humanitarian activities in Goa and across the world to its vision in the years to come.
An Intercity Meet was organised at the National Institute of Oceanography auditorium in which over 400 Rotarians participated. Ravindran launched the insurance scheme, ‘Bal Kavach,’ of RC Panaji Riviera, which will provide personal accidental insurance for over 10,000 school children from rural and backward areas of Goa, in partnership with New India Insurance. The total sum insured is about Rs 50 crore. Students and their school Head Masters were present at the launch.
