Message from the President


Dr. Najam Chishti is the new 2023-2024 President of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown. A retired research scientist, Chishti has lived in Charlottetown for the last 42 years. He is a well-known community leader and his goal as President of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown is to create awareness about Rotary and its activities in the community and internationally.

Rotary is a service organization consisting of over 1.2 million members whose main objective is to serve the local communities in which they live as well as around the globe. This year, the Rotary International theme is HOPE. As a club, we look forward to creating hope through opportunities to engage with one
another and to provide leadership through our club projects and activities. We will continually strive to build a just and equitable society where people can live in peaceful environment.

As Rotarians, we are people of action. One prime example of Rotary in Action is the partnership between Rotary International and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to eradicate Polio. Currently, there are only seven known reported cases of polio in the world (Afghanistan and Pakistan). Rotary is admired for its vocational service and it connects the world. Rotary is involved with farmers helping farmers in Kenya, improving the lives of orphans and mothers.

The Rotary Club of Charlottetown was established in 1917 and has had a long history of supporting local and international projects. We are proud to support Easter Seals PEI, Camp Gencheff, the Soup Kitchen, and the new Charlottetown Library and Learning Centre. Other club activities include volunteering at the breakfast clubs of St. Jean and Prince Street School, our food hamper program, youth exchange, youth parliament, and our dialysis transportation program for patients in need.

We are able to support our local communities and internationally through the success of our Rotary Radio Bingo Program every Tuesday evening at 7 pm on 95.1 FM CFCY.

Let us embrace diversity and grow stronger in achieving our goals!
