Together We Can

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Aug 22, 2019 |

The Inner Wheel year has turned a full circle and we are at the beginning of Inner Wheel year 2019-2020 with a new Theme – “Together we can”.

“Together we can” are three meaningful words and by working together within the 104 countries that Inner Wheel is represented, we can prove that Inner Wheel members can achieve their dreams and make a difference in this ever changing world whilst enjoying friendships with a real purpose.

Women are great leaders and, in Inner Wheel, together we can make the world a safer and better place for all to live. By working together anything can be achieved, whether it be disease awareness, poverty prevention, accessible education, safeguarding the environment, skills training, female hygiene provisions, or the many other situations where the improvement of the safety and wellbeing of women and their families are concerned.

International Inner Wheel is also represented at the United Nations in New York, Geneva and Vienna by dedicated members attending and being involved in discussions relating to Women and Children, Sustainable Development, Narcotic Drugs, Crime Prevention, Criminal Justice, Ageing and Youth, amongst others.

St Francis of Assisi once said “Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible”. Let us prove that 110,000 Inspirational and Innovative Women in Inner Wheel together can also achieve the impossible.

Our Objects are to promote true friendship – to encourage the ideals of personal service – to foster international understanding.

These are words that we as members should relate to and use in our everyday lives to ensure that we serve our local and international communities.

Let us be proud of our heritage and what our Founder Margarette Golding achieved for Inner Wheel in a few years. Now, nearly 100 years later, we also have to be innovative in our efforts to inspire other women to join Inner Wheel, so that together we can enjoy friendships and reach out to those who are getting left behind in this ever changing world.

The future of Inner Wheel is in all of our hands – we are its caretakers. Together we can nurture it – we can inspire it – we can love it - and give it new life for tomorrow. Let us invite all other “Inspirational Innovative Women” to join Inner Wheel so that, like St Francis of Assisi, we can do what is necessary, do what is possible and prove that together we can achieve even more of the impossible.

Let us reinforce how small the world is and how successful International Inner Wheel is by holding hands around the world, whilst creating footprints for others to follow.
