What makes a Rotaract project outstanding?

Service in Action

By Molly Friend, Rotary Programs for Young Leaders Staff

Rotaract clubs bring together people ages 18-30 to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. In communities worldwide, Rotary and Rotaract members work side by side to take action through service.

Every year, Rotaract clubs around the world develop innovative solutions to community challenges. Rotary annually recognizes these high-impact, sustainable projects with the Rotaract Outstanding Project Awards.

So what makes a Rotaract project outstanding?

1) Change

1Last year’s Outstanding Project Awardee, the Rotaract Club of Bugolobi in Uganda, aimed to support a rural community with the highest impact possible.

Everyone has a value. You are paid not by the time you give but what you bring to the market place.”

-Jim Rohn

I believe it is a dream of most of us to be good at our jobs although in reality it is a small percentage of us who really achieve that. I am blessed to have a cousin sister who is the Head of Recruitment and Career Services in arguably the largest Recruitment Company in the country. One month ago I invited her to come and speak to my Rotaract Club on career development. In her presentation, she gave an emphasis on developing soft-skills which can help a person achieve greatness in his/her career. Continue reading “SOFT SKILLS AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT”

Last year I came across an African saying which made me re-think my life. The saying, “if you stand in the sun when you are young, you will sit in the shade when you are old” made me question my quest of leadership and if at all I am making any move towards what I presume to be my ultimate desire. Many of us young people today, especially those of us called the millenials are taken to despise the leadership role that the society “bestowed” on us. The reasons for this assumption may be many. But I am one of the few believers who believe that even we millenials have a chance of becoming great and transformational leaders.
