Who We Are

The Rotaract Club of Colombo is the first and oldest Rotaract Club in Sri Lanka. Established in 1969, the Rotaract Club of Colombo, with the guidance of the Rotary Club of Colombo, aims to develop effective leaders and promote responsible citizenship. We are a group of young professionals, ages 18 to 30, committed to personal, professional and community development. In the many years since it was chartered, the RCC has emerged as a premier service organization in Colombo.

Rotaract fosters leadership and responsibility and promotes international understanding and peace. Meetings are usually held bi-monthly. We welcome you to explore our website and contact us if you are interested to join us at our meetings, events and various opportunities!

Our Goals:

  1. To develop professional and leadership skills
  2. To emphasise respect for the rights of others, and to promote ethical standards and the dignity of all useful occupations
  3. To provide opportunities for young people to address the needs and concerns of the community and our world
  4. To provide opportunities for working in cooperation with sponsor Rotary clubs
  5. To motivate young people for eventual membership in Rotary.
