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.

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.


Rotary President Brad Swartzentruber and Nampa Rotary Foundation Chairman Andy Dodson recently presented Nampa Interim Director Claire Connley a check for $10,000. A study room, equipped with electronic technology, has been named after Nampa Rotary. Canyon County Sunrise Rotary Club of Nampa gave $1,000 and the Nampa Rotary Foundation gave $1,000. Nampa Rotary gave $3,000 and Rotary District 5400 provided a matching grant of $5,000.

“The Rotary Clubs of Nampa are proud to support a local community project that is in alignment with one of Rotary’s six areas of focus – literacy,” Nampa’s Past President Jennifer Deroin said. “We understand the importance of early childhood literacy and wanted to provide technology that would aid in this effort.  We provide dictionaries to third graders typically every year, and thought that this would be a great opportunity to support this legacy project in Nampa.”
