"In my first years in Rotaract, it was just a hobby I shared with my friends from school on weekends. But my involvement grew, and over the past 13 years, I have served as club president, district Rotaract representative, director of marketing and PR of our district’s KidsCamp, and chair of Rotaract Germany. —Jan Ilzig, Rotaract Club of München-Bavaria, Germany

What a class act! 🎒 Rotary members in #Guatemala raised $10,000 for a local school whose students live in poverty. The improved conditions will help students to flourish with new desks, a computer lab, and plans for a new roof.

"When your family becomes a Rotary family, then you can achieve so much more. I am a living example: I joined Rotaract in 2011 as a student at Makerere University and became very active in the organization. In 2015, I enrolled at Uganda Christian University. I had to balance being a full-time student and serving as assistant district Rotaract representative and later as country chair for Uganda." —Jakob Ssendawula, Rotaract Club of Kampala City, Uganda

In Sri Lanka, #Rotaract members participated in a #scavengerhunt, in which 500 competitors went on a nine-hour scramble to take on more than 20 mental and physical challenges. One example was moving a heavy tire without rolling it. Entry fees and sponsorships generated money to provide rainwater harvesting tanks and reverse-osmosis water purification systems in rural areas of the country. 💧

Wild bees are responsible for pollinating more than 80% of our crops and wild plants but they are dying at an alarming rate. German Rotaract clubs are protecting the bee population by building more than 500 bee hotels to create new habitats.

One of Rotary’s causes is supporting education—strengthening the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy. A simple and easily replicable  project is starting a @littlefreelibrary in your community! 📚📖
