Avenues

What we Do

Community Service

A Rotaract club’s Community Service projects address today’s most critical issues, such as poverty, education, violence, hunger and the environment. RCC’s Community Service initiatives include interaction with our beneficiaries as far as possible, which helps members to understand the needs of the community we live in. Our project main project under this avenue is Charity Bus. On Charity Bus, we complete eight different projects, ranging from tree planting, to painting schools to donating to wildlife  sanctuaries, over a period of two days. 

Apart from this, RCC has many other projects under this avenue such as assisting Lanka Food Bank, fundrasing for charities in need, etc.  

Club Service

Serving our own members and increasing fellowship is what Club Service focuses on. One distinguishing feature of Rotaract is the camaraderie and memories that we keep with us. The main projects under this avenue are the Club Installation and the eagerly anticipated Annual Christmas Party, which helps us raise funds for all our Community Service projects.

The Club Trip, Founder’s Day Celebrations and RCC Movie Night are, among others, regular initiatives for this avenue of service.  

International Service

International Service projects aim to leverage the diverse network of the Rotaract movement, achieve enhanced cultural exchanges and strengthened international relationships, while allowing us to showcase and enjoy the heritage, beauty, and culture of our island. 

RCC’s signature International Service project is Escape To Paradise, which has been running since 2008. Apart from this, our members take part in international Rotaract RoundTrips, taking Sri Lanka to a global platform and bringing back some of the culture that they learnt to the club. Twinning agreements and joint meetings with international clubs are some of the other initiatives under this avenue. 

Professional Development

Professional development activities expand the members’ understanding of the work environment and business opportunities within their community. These activities highlight the Rotaractor’s role in the community’s economic development and illustrate how skills developed through service activities can help. 

RCC is dedicated to ensuring that each year, our members learn new and different skills that would benefit them. Projects that we have done under this avenue include First Aid Training, Personality Workshops, Basic Krav Maga, amongst many more.
