About Leole Malama-Prasad

Leole Malama-Prasad joined Hutt River Valley Rotary in 2013 because she wants to continue making a difference in the community working with like-minded people to ensure the best opportunities for young people across Aotearoa and also across the world. As Leole says, ‘Who else can say they are making a difference with friends and whanau? How many people can say they have contributed to eradicating polio?”


Rotary has provided opportunities that Leole has willingly accepted such as Past President of Rotary Club of Hutt River Valley and currently as an Assistant Governor and a member of the District 9940 Club Development and Membership Committee.Throughout these roles her Rotary highlight is getting a Rotary Presidential Citation in her year as President as it symbolises all the changes and efforts made in my year.


Her favourite projects are Dictionaries in Schools and the annual Rotary Stokes Valley Christmas Parade – Absolutely loves it!


Outside of Rotary, Leole is a Community Advisor with the Department of Internal Affairs where a half her role is community funding and the other half is supporting communities, community organisations and projects through the delivery of training, connections and facilitation


She is married to Raj Prasad, fellow Rotarian, who is of Fijian Indian Descent.
