My dear Inner Wheel Members ,

As we embark on a year of friendship and collective service, I am deeply honoured to share this memorable and meaningful journey with you to successfully achieve our vision and goals for the year.
The impact of our association in building better lives and creating happier futures vests with our clubs in providing a platform for our members to come together and execute community need based projects that align with the objectives of our organisation.This can only happen by focusing on Extension, Retention, Membership growth, Strategic planning, efficient training, promoting leadership and involving members in the programmmes and activities of the club and District, to grow Inner Wheel.
In our efforts to create a more socially equitable and environmentally sustainable world, we look to concentrating our efforts in protecting and empowering women, promoting gender equality,enhancing literacy initiatives, skill development and bringing about a positive environmental impact. Our work is diverse and far reaching and reflects Inner Wheel’s deep passion and commitment to Empathize, Educate and Empower women in all stratas of society.

The importance of education and Literacy is a guaranteed way to change lives. By equipping people with literacy skills and quality education, we can increase their access to economic opportunities and emancipation, which in turn will help alleviate poverty.
We need to give full support to the praiseworthy initiative of our Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi in improving the quality of the environment through the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’programme.Our children must also receive guidance and instruction in Hygiene and Health Care,Handwashing etc and providing clean and healthy surroundings to grow. We must also ensure that suitable toilet facilities are provided for girls in schools thereby limiting dropouts from the educational system. Care should also be taken to educate girls on menstrual hygiene,child rights and abuse in society.
As responsible citizens we must also make all efforts to conserve and protect the environment by limiting our use of paper and moving towards electronic communications for reducing our carbon footprint.
Let us work together with commitment and dedication in the coming year for the cause of Inner Wheel by making our clubs stronger and more effective.
Every effort must be made to project the good work of our clubs, thereby improving our Public Image and increasing the brand value of Inner Wheel. Let us reach out by inviting more wonderful women to join us in expanding the great work we do.
The International Inner Wheel Convention is being held in Melbourne, Australia in April 2018 with Dr Kapila Gupta as the International Inner Wheel President. Let us make every effort to promote and support the Melbourne Convention by attending in large numbers.
I look forward to working closely with you in the year ahead to foster friendships and serve our communities. Let our work together in building happier futures and better lives be our lasting gift to posterity.
Leave a lasting Legacy!
Yours in friendship,
Patricia Hilton
Association President & National Representative 2017-2018
