The Archbishop Elect of Kampala Archdiocese Paul Ssemogerere has asked Rotarians to work with the church in service projects to create a bigger impact in communities.

There are over 4000 Rotarians in Uganda spread in over 140 Rotary clubs in Uganda whose purposes are to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service.

While addressing Rotarians at hybrid fellowship organized by Rotary Clubs of Wobulenzi at his home at Kasana-Luwero Diocese in Luwero town, Archbishop Paul Ssemogerere acknowledged several projects in education, health, water, and climate change that have been implemented by Rotarians to promote the well-being of the people.

Ssemogerere says that apart from spiritual development, Rotarians do the same projects as the church and there was a need to collaborate so as to reach more people in dire need of services.

Ssemogerere added that several Rotarians like other members of the community also attained education from church-founded schools whereas others continue to acquire health services from the institutions' centers hence needing to work together.

He said that there was a great need to identify needs, mobilize resources and execute projects together to foster development in communities.

Ssemogerere who is also an Honorary Member of the Rotary Club of Wobulenzi also asked Clubs to recruit as many priests as possible into Rotary clubs so as to widen its membership.
