In order to promote goodwill and better friendships among club members, fun activities and fellowships are organized to give members an opportunity to interact with each other and get to know and appreciate their diversities. Such activities include installation parties, camps, and excursions among others.
The Rotaract Club of Nairobi Central endeavours to work with communities and carries out projects in line with Rotary International 6 thematic areas: Peace and Conflict Prevention / Resolution; Disease Prevention and Treatment; Water and Sanitation; Maternal and Child Health; Basic Education and Literacy; Economic and Community Development.
Professional Development is a cornerstone of Rotaract and this enables college students and working professionals from ages 18 to 30 not only to serve the community but also build themselves professionally.
As part of professional development, we sometimes invite guest speakers to our meetings, and hold seminars and workshops to increase our knowledge of professions or to improve or learn new skills that will assist in starting and furthering careers.
There are opportunities to put your leadership, communication, and organisational skills into practice at the club, district, and even international level, by participating in or chairing a committee, project or event; facilitating seminars or camps; mentoring other young people through interact clubs, or taking on a leadership role.
The International Service avenue of Rotaract promotes goodwill and better understanding with members of other clubs locally and internationally. This enables members of different clubs to network on a global scale, exchange ideas, share information, collaborate on club projects and build friendships while appreciating and celebrating their diverse cultures.
Currently the club has twin clubs with rotaract clubs of Kampala Ssese Islands (Uganda), Mella (Ethiopia) and is in close collaboration with Rotaract club of Belmont (Australia), Rotaract club of Beirut and Rotaract club of Santa Barbara (USA). The club’s sister club in Kenya is the Rotaract Club of United States International University (USIU).
International service also gives members of the club an opportunity to benefit from and utilize Rotary resources such as Peace Scholarships, Ambassadorial Scholarships, Group Study Exchange Programs and Youth Exchange Programs which expose the members to diverse cultures around the globe.
