A lot of people may have heard these names being talked about: the Interact Club of the school or the events that the Rotary or Rotaract clubs organise for different fundraisers, but what is the Interact Club [A.A.] exactly and why are we a part of it?
It is an opportunity to meet people from any nationality, religion or race – but all wanting one common thing: to socialise together and to help the community by fundraising, organising events and helping our communities to be a better places.
Being part of the Interact Club gives you so many opportunities and experiences without you even realising. First of all, meeting fellow Rotaract and Rotary members who have been through the exact same situations as you and can guide you and advise you; meeting people that have come from different backgrounds can give you a different, more versatile view of life and finally, just the opportunity to be part of something bigger than you are; to be able to help and actually do something that you know will make a change. For example, a recent event of the club was a Christmas festival where all proceeds will go towards the Multiple Sclerosis Association. This, of course, does not come easy – it needs people, dedication, time and motivation and if people are not willing to help this would not be possible, but through a lot of hard team work the Rotaract, Rotary and The Interact club are able to increase and hopefully have more events to help as much as possible.
