The Rotaract Club of Nairobi Central is one of the vibrant Rotaract Clubs in Kenya in Rotary District 9200 and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Nairobi. The club meets fortnightly on Tuesdays at the Laico Regency, Nairobi from 6.00 p.m.
Living by the spirit of the Rotary movement, the club has been actively involved in various community service projects and continues to reach out to communities and alleviate human suffering to whatever extend is possible. 2010/2011 Rotary year has been particularly active with the club carrying out several projects chief among them being: participation in the annual Rotary Polio Walk – a Thon where the club raised KES. 14,700.00 towards the walk and also took part in it; the club also through the help of a friend, Christel Adamou of the UN Dispute Tribunal donated a sewing machine and other equipments to the Salama Special Unit in Huruma. The club also visits the Al Tawoon Educational Centre in Korogocho where we donate stationery and other items to the children in the school on an annual basis. Together with other Rotaract Clubs in Kenya, the club is participating in an on-going initiative in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity Kenya where the clubs have embarked on building an IDP home costing KES. 200,000.00. So far, the clubs have managed to mobilze KES 70,000.00 towards the project and hope to raise the remaining amount before the year comes to an end. Other community service projects include annual Christmas party at The Thogoto Home for the Aged; annual visit to Kenyatta National Hospital Children’s Cancer Ward in collaboration with Rotaract Club of Nairobi University among others. Most of these community service projects are carried out during weekends when there is sufficient time and most of the members can make it.
The other mandate of the club, which is actually the reason why the Rotaract Clubs were formed, is to develop the membership professionally and this is done by inviting various speakers to give talks to the membership. The rotary year 2010/2011 Professional Development Program was packed with speakers ranging from entrepreneurs, entertainers, environmentalists, bankers, volunteers, just to name but a few.
Through the club service committee, the club members do not have to just work and work with no play at all. The club service committee is responsible for the play and organizes TGIFs (Thank God its Friday) or TGISs (Thank God its Saturday) where the club members go to cool off the heat of the work and just have fun and get to know each other. House parties are common place as well as camping and relaxed afternoons at the club chatting away.
The other important activities in the club are PR and Fundraising and International Service which are in-charge of raising funds to keep the club running and networking with other clubs respectively.
