Article by Rotarian CPP Paul Masterjerb Birungi ( PHF )

Rotarian Raj, is a Rotarian since 1998, had joined RC of KV in 2000. Since the very beginning he has been a very active and committed member, to the cause of Rotary. He has been honored by the club in the very first year as the Rotarian of the year and was decorated and named by the club as a PHF. That inspired Rotarian Raj to motivate other fellow members and friends of the club in the Rotary moment for their service above self. So he has committed and named over 11 persons as PHF including his Excellency and the First Lady of the Republic. Rotarian Raj was a president of the club in 2006-2007.

He has been honored by the Rotary Foundation earlier as Multiple Paul Harris Fellow and later in 2009 as a Major Donor. He is the first in the country for such an honor. Rotarian Raj has further committed to honor more members of our club and other friends of Rotary by ‘Naming’ them as PHFs.

Apart from his contribution of over USD 11000 to Rotary Foundation he has been contributing, many initiatives of the club and projects, financially and with ‘in-kind’ contributions in addition to his ‘Service above Self’ participation in club projects. He is the current Chair of the KPL project committee since 2007.

“He is an inspiration to all our fellow Rotarians in Rwanda”
