Rotaract Club of Karachi Cosmopolitan - Open Day

Hello People! Rotaract Club of Karachi Cosmopolitan, one of the many Rotaract clubs formed around the world, has announced that their next Open Day will be on July 9th, 2011. It is open (and free) for anyone who lives in Karachi and wishes to join the club. E-mail (Rawr) me if you want to come, I'll send you the details (address and timings).


Our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rotaract-Club-of-Karachi-Cosmopolitan/274055017886


Our Club has four basic portfolios:
1. Community Services - we are working hard to make our city and our country polio free and to achieve this we train and send people for immunization drives around the city whenever the Government announces National Immunization Days. We are also working to provide more and better education opportunities to the less privileged. Twice a year we hold blood drives in which blood donors are sought for hospitals, they are also registered in case they require blood in future. We are trying to extend our hand to the society as much as possible in as many ways we can. (I am the Director of Community Services)


2. Professional and Leadership Development - we try and develop professional skills and leadership qualities in our club members and in the general public, mainly students. Any club member can suggest an event/project and take lead on it and the whole club supports and helps the project lead. For any club event, work is divided equally between all the members and new members are encouraged to take up leading positions so that they learn professionalism. This is not it! We also organize annual Speak Up! and RYLA. Speak Up! is a speaking platform divided into three categories: ROTSKY (basic speaking techniques for primary school students), ROTATE (parliamentary debates for Intermediate, A level and University students) and ROTMUN (Model United Nations for Intermediate, A level and University students). RYLA (Rotaract Youth Leadership Awards) is a 3 day long event in which we try and teach basic leadership ideas and theories through different activities, games and workshops.


3. Club Services - club services include fundraising events,  appreciation ceremonies and essentially it is all the party and fun.


4. International Understanding - we are trying to develop better international relations through sending our members to events organized by Rotaract clubs in other countries and inviting their members to our events.


Club registration is a simple process. You have to attend four meetings (including Open Day) and participate in one event, at least, to be a permanent member of the club. There is an annual fee of Rs. 1000 which is a tiny fraction of what the club spends on you throughout the year.
