The RFE trip to India was a huge success in a number of ways. The participants bonded as a team and many Rotary friendships were forged between the members and their Indian counterparts.

As well, we were very impressed with the variety and depth of the humanitarian projects that the Rotary Clubs of District 3040 have undertaken in an effort to make a positive impact on the lives of ordinary citizens. From dialysis to eye care to drowning prevention, District 3040 is working hard to bring a better standard of living to many.

We came away with a positive feeling about the boom and growth of India, in the face of a huge population with very disparate living conditions. India is changing, and the pace of change will accelerate as the future unfolds.

The RFE team very much appreciated the opportunity to travel to India to enhance their understanding of another culture and another country.
