For over a century now, Rotary International has established its name as the most influential service club worldwide. In its illustrious history, a major decision was taken in 1968, with the inception of Rotaract as youth program which
engaged18-30 year oldsto develop leadership and skills while serving the society.
Rotaract that stands for “Rotary in Action” aims to provide opportunities for personal and group activities to serve the community and promote international understanding and goodwill towards everyone. The actions of Rotaract are based on the knowledge and understanding of the needs, problems, and opportunities in the community and worldwide.
Our club, Rotaract Club of Young Visionaries (RCYV), joined the community of over 30 lakh change makers in October 2015. This community-based club came into existence under the aegis of the Rotary Club of Delhi Rendezvous (parent club) and is a part of Rotary District 3011. Our Club comprises a large number of young men and women of various colleges of various universities including University of Delhi and Indraprastha University.
Within three years we have done remarkable work and have secured several feathers in our cap such as:
·Best Club Community 2016-17
·Elite category Award (top most of the five categories)
·Best Rotaract President
·Recognition for Mahadaan 2.0
·Best Bulletin – The Visionnaire (our monthly magazine)
These accolades are a result of our humble contribution to the society through our events like:
This event aimed at providing education along with the basic practical knowledge of computers to the unprivileged children. Our volunteers engaged in this activity for over a month and not only quenched the thirst of inquisitive kids who wished to learn but also gained a sense of content by the end of summer 2017.
RCYV organizes Happy Birthday Bharat- Varshaganatha every year to throw a Birthday Bash for all the little kids who never get to celebrate their birthdays. With happy smiles, gifts, sweets, and lots of laughter, this event turns out to the most fun and fulfilling experience.
