Interota Service Project – Bata Cleanup

Interota Service Project – Bata Cleanup


Rotaract originally began as a Rotary International youth program in 1968 and has now grown into a major Rotary-sponsored organization of over 7,000 clubs spread around the world. It is a professional service, leadership and community service organization for young men and women between the ages 18–30. Rotaract focuses on the development of young adults as leaders in their communities and workplaces. Clubs around the world also take part in international service projects, in a global effort to bring peace and international understanding to the world. Interota, a worldwide Rotaract meeting held every three years, is organized and sponsored by Rotaractors. It provides Rotaractors with a forum for sharing ideas, concerns, and experiences with other Rotaract club members around the world. This year the Interota was held in Makadi Bay from the 18th-22nd of November. Part of the conference was a service project which had been organised together with HEPCA. On the 21st of November more than 100 people from around 30 different countries did a cleanup in Bata, a residential area in Dahar (Hurghada). Part of the service project was also the installation of new bins in the area and an awareness campaign teaching the locals more about environmental protection and the necessity to dispose their rubbish correctly. HEPCA would like to thank the team of Rotaract for their great work and their exemplary commitment. It was a real pleasure meeting you!
