DISCON Hilo 2023 is just around the corner.  We look forward to seeing you in Hilo on May 19 through 21.  If you have not done so, there is still time to register for the full three-day package or a la carte.  Here's a day-by-day highlight of events.
Each year clubs around the State get out to execute a Community Service Project. This year, it is April 22, which happens to be Earth Day too!  We are participating in Kahu Hawaii's Volunteer Month and our projects can be listed for others to join you.  We will have a group listing under Rotary D5000 on the Kanu Hawaii website and the postings are being coordinated by Kristina Tomino for Youth Service Chair, Ryan Char.  Read more for the projects planned so far.

Girls Empowerment Initiative

“I raise up my voice — not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard … we cannot all succeed when half of us are held back." - Malala Yousafza

Welcome to March! It was in 1987 that Congress declared this month National Women’s Month, celebrating the vital role that women and girls have played in American history. 

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. You already know that Women are active participants in Rotary, serving their communities in increasing numbers and serving in leadership positions in Rotary. The 1989 Council on Legislation vote to admit women into Rotary clubs worldwide remains a watershed moment in the history of Rotary. The vote followed the decades-long efforts of men and women from all over the Rotary world to allow the admission of women into Rotary clubs, and several close votes at previous Council meetings.

Rotary International also celebrates women and girls through the Girls’ Empowerment Initiative which debuted in 2022 and has continued today.  Rotary Clubs are encouraged to engage in projects that empower girls, through education, health, clean water, disease prevention, community and economic development, the environment or peace and conflict prevention-Rotary’s seven areas of focus. 

Our District has a team of committed volunteers from Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, and Kauai who meet monthly via zoom to discuss potential girl’s empowerment projects and share ideas for speakers that clubs can use as a resource for girls’ empowerment issues (the speakers and projects are listed on the District's Girls Empowerment page -  CLICK HERE to go to the sitepage).
