Rotary District 5400
Idaho, USA

District Governor Ken Howell, Boise Rotary Club

Our District is composed of more than 1800 Rotarians serving 43 clubs from Preston to Ashton, Twin Falls to Ontario and all that’s in between. Our clubs meet weekly for breakfast or lunch or an after work “happy hour”. We get our hands dirty in our own communities and support the work of Rotary International, whether its to end polio, provide clean water and sanitation or support sustainable agriculture or literacy projects around the world.

Our clubs are always looking for new members to bring fresh ideas and new energy. We hope you’ll explore this website to learn more and find a Rotary club in your community.

The Greater Boise Rotary Foundation (GBRF) is made up the 7 Rotary Clubs that reside in Ada County. Its mission is to support community projects within Ada County. This year the GRBF Board accepted some 30 requests for "major" grants. After much anguish over deciding among all these worthwhile projects, the winner was the Boise Watershed Exhibits, Inc.
A check for $17,000 was awarded to the organization at the GBRF monthly meeting on July 9th in the Watershed's meeting room. This will support an interactive educational kiosk which will be part of a $3 million project to greatly expand their educational campus on Joplin Rd. The new exhibit is to be called "Walking on Water" and will feature displays on groundwater, snowpack, aquifers and water treatment. Ground breaking for the new project is scheduled for August 27th.


K.R. Ravindran insists you call him “Ravi” immediately after you’ve been introduced. He has bearing: He is tall, with excellent posture, and he has the off-handed self-assurance of someone who is impressively accomplished. His disarming features are his restless curiosity and profound modesty.

Ravindran is CEO and founder of Printcare PLC, Sri Lanka’s largest printing and packaging company, with a worldwide clientele. It is publicly listed and has won many national and international awards for excellence. It provides design-to-delivery printing, packaging, and digital media solutions, and is arguably the No. 1 producer of tea bag tags and sachets in the world. Ravindran insists that his company maintain a focus on environmental sustainability, social responsibility, community engagement, and high ethical standards.

A member of the Rotary Club of Colombo since 1974, Ravindran has served as RI treasurer, director, and Foundation trustee, as well as in many other offices. When he was his country’s PolioPlus committee chair, he headed a task force, which worked with UNICEF to negotiate a cease-fire with northern militants that allowed National Immunization Days to occur. Ravindran also chaired the Schools Reawakening project, sponsored by clubs and districts in Sri Lanka, which rebuilt 25 tsunami-devastated schools, benefiting 15,000 children. He also serves on the boards of several other companies and charitable trusts.
