Rotaractors around the world have a unique opportunity to learn about other cultures and foster goodwill through the global family of Rotary. Partnerships can involve establishing a pen- pal/e-mail relationship, arranging Rotaractor visits, exchanging project ideas, and undertaking small international or community service projects
Rotaract clubs considering such a venture can choose a partner that shares similar interests, challenges, or language capabilities. Rotaractors can also correspond with clubs located in an area of geographical interest.
The International Service Officer organises events with an international theme to broaden the horizons of Club members.
These include: Themed evenings e.g. Dinner at an International Cuisine restaurants. Cultural Explosion which showcases food and attire from different countries. Quizzes about other Cultures.
Your club may want to find out more about another Club in another part of the world. This can lead to joint projects, newsletters, visits, Gift exchange
This involves two clubs from different Rotary International (RI) countries that have established strong ties and have agreed to team up to complete a special program. It may be an International service project, friendship exchange or cultural exchange. Clubs are invited to register as a part of this activity and are encouraged to undertake a joint program or project in developing the international understanding.
Besides using Facebook, Twitter, and even Google. One of the best places to find interesting clubs are at international Rotary events. For eg: District Conferences, RI Convention, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), etc. These provide good opportunities to make contact, as they are attended by persons from all over the world.
