Being involved with Community Action and Interact is . . . . . . good for YOU !
Interact is part of a large worldwide organisation called Rotary International which has 33,976 clubs and over 1.22 million members worldwide. Its purposes include to provide humanitarian service and to help build goodwill and peace in the world Its many international activities include PolioPlus, Exchanges and Scholarships, Disaster Relief (eg. ShelterBox), Literacy Programmes and International Studies
A good example of an international Rotary project involving co-operation between Clubs was our own provision of a computer suite for the LEAP school in Cape Town, South Africa in 2008
A further project in 2009 was the fundraising to sponsor 2 dormitories for 3 years at St Judes School, Tanzania – another worthwhile joint Rotary and School initiative
And on many occasions we have also raised money for the Rotary ShelterBox international disaster relief project with our boxes being deployed in Pakistan (2010) and Haiti (2008)
Through Rotary, Interact and Community Action, YOU can help others
Interact and Community Action groups can bring forward and develop ideas to help others . . . . locally . .
