Apart from the enthusiasm and serviced-mind of the Rotaractors, other distinctive features of this 1st Rotaract Club of the Rotary Club of Hong Kong South include its formation was only completed within 6 months. One important note is that it is chartered by the son of a Rotarian of the Club, nurturing the second generation to embark on his Rotary journey – Service Above Self.
Service Above Self
Prior to the official inauguration, both clubs already actively participating in the service projects active participation of the Rotaractors in the service projects at both District 3450 level and Club level namely, the –“Preserve Planet Earth – Sustainable Seafood Ambassador Programme” and the “Single Elderly Visit” respectively.
In addition to helping these young Rotaractors to provide service to the needy, a number of sharing sessions have already been lined up to provide exposure to these Young Members. Our Club members are also prepared to mentoring them for both their career development and seeding them as future pillars of the society.
It is hoped that we will turn them all to Rotarians in the near future.
