JCI Curepipe 2015 President’s Message

Dear Members, Senators and Aspiring Members,

It is with great joy and a deep sense of responsibility that I welcome all of you all to 2015, our ‘Impact’ year.  As I assume my official responsibilities as the 31st Local President of JCI Curepipe, I feel that the work ahead is much, but I am also a firm believer of the power of collective effort.  We, every single person at JCI Curepipe forms a team, an acronym for ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’, and with this mentality ahead of us, there is nothing that we cannot do once we set our minds to it.
This is our year. This is your year.

I raise my hat to my predecessors, and especially 2014 Local President Veenandi Luximon, who have set the pace and provided a platform for JCI Curepipe, and I state my commitment to building on the same platform. 2014 Local President Veenandi is a hard worker and a dedicated Jaycee.  I was inspired by her to create a meaningful theme for this year.

The theme for 2015 in JCI Curepipe is RYTHM – Raise Yourself To Help Mankind.  This is an abridgment for the goals of 2015, which is to raise ourselves as one JCI Curepipe family towards excellence so as to bring more and more impact in our community.

We will achieve all of our goals for 2015 first by building up the capacity of our members at the level of the individual, bring more active members in our organization, then by engaging in meaningful projects to bring about positive and impact-full changes in our community, and finally, by engaging in partnerships with organizations that share mutual goals in order to increase the impact that we seek to create.
Ambitious, yes, and definitely challenging, but I also believe that if your vision is not big enough that it scares you, then it is not big enough.

In conclusion, I say: And now let us welcome the new year—full of things that have never been before. Here’s to the endless possibilities ahead of us.
Once again, thank you all for this golden opportunity to serve you.

Genuine success comes only to those who are ready for it.  So never step back and always have courage, to accept new challenges.
Wishing you a very happy new year 2015.

In service to Humanity.
