Since its establishment, the Mella Rotaract Club has carried out a number of voluntary community services. They have provided basic school materials to children when parents could not afford it, trainings to 472 garbage collectors about how to protect themselves from disease as they travel from house to house picking up trash, supporting polio vaccination, organizing blood donation events and many others.
Rotaract clubs are part of a global effort to bring peace and international understanding to the world. They are non-religious, non-political and non-profit organizations which are involved in community and international service. They are open to people between the ages of 18 and 30 years old.
Currently Rotaract Clubs are found in 177 countries worldwide with 9,522 clubs and there are 291,006 members.
Being a Rotarian helps people connect with community leaders, act locally and globally to create sustainable change, expand professional networks and exchange ideas with proven leaders, developing professional skills through leadership trainings. Rotarians often make friends from around the world.
