RACKL story


Chartered on 29 September 1969, the Rotaract Club of Kuala Lumpur goes down in history as the second oldest Rotaract Club in Malaysia. We are under our parent Rotary Club of Kuala Lumpur Diraja and come under the territory of District 3300-Malaysia.

What do we do? Well, Rotaract basically has 4 main avenues and we usually organise projects, professional guest speakers, outings and parties in line with them. The avenues are:
> Community Service
Rotaract clubs carry out at least one community service project each year in an effort to improve the lives of the people around them. The possibilities for worthwhile projects are endless. To name a few, Rotaractors volunteer to assist at orphanages and homes for abused children, blood donation campaigns, organise community, literacy promotion, develop recreational areas and also working to improve and preserve the environment. To us, community service is very rewarding and we derive such satisfaction from seeing a child laughing, an old man smile, many happy faces and lots more wonderful things when we reach out to others. Helping the less fortunate helps us realise how fortunate our lives are.

> Professional Development
A club’s professional development activities can help to expand a members’ understanding of the work environment and business opportunities within their community. These activities highlight the Rotaractor’s role in the community’s economic development and illustrate how skills developed through service activities can help in resolving problems in the workplace and in any other environment. Under this avenue of service, Rotaract clubs organise activities that stress on leadership training and professionalism. Rotaract respects and recognises the value of all useful occupations as opportunity to serve. So, take advantage of Rotaract resources in training seminars, gain leadership skills and develop your career from various exposure.

> International Service
Because Rotaractors want to learn more about other cultures and do their part to promote world peace and understanding, they undertake at least one international service project each year. Such activities takes many forms. Rotaractors raise fund for international disaster relief programs, make exchange visits with Rotaractors in other countries and host similar visits from other Rotaract clubs, and volunteer their skills in international development and assistance project. The most interesting part is the once in a lifetime opportunity to forge lasting international friendships.

> Fellowship
We may work hard but we also believe in having our good time. Rotaractors have the chance to have loads of fun, try new things and make friends through the activities under this avenue including movie outings, camping trips, interclub gatherings, sporting events, themed parties and much more. Members have loads of fun getting together, working together and staying together. In Rotaract, there are ample hard work and effort, but the rewards are plentiful.
