It is my humble pleasure to assume the president role at this time of the club’s 90th anniversary year. It is going to be a challenging year, as there are various changes within SIGBI and the implementation of Programme Action.
However, the club will continue to endeavour in its initiative, supporting 3E programmes in a variety of ways – locally, nationally and internationally.
During this year, I would like to see the club increase in number and retain the existing members. Although family and other commitments may not allow us to meet our target, we will try our best in this area.
I would like to see more involvement with other like-minded organisations to raise our profile and also work alongside educational institutions to empower and raise awareness among young people, especially in areas of gender inequalities and other social ills in society today.
In order to achieve this, the team effort of the club will be needed, as the success of any club is not that of the president but the joint input from all the members. I wish the club a fruitful and pleasant year.
