Colombo, April 12 (NewsIn.Asia) –
The Rotaract Club of Colombo is the first and oldest Rotaract Club in Sri Lanka. Established in 1969, the Rotaract Club of Colombo, with the guidance of the Rotary Club of Colombo, aims to develop effective leaders and promote responsible citizenship. They are a group of young professionals committed to personal, professional and community development. In the many years since it was chartered, the RCC has emerged as a premier service organization in Colombo.
Rotaract fosters leadership and responsibility and promotes international understanding and peace, staying true to the vision of the club – “Helping Yourself. Helping Others.”
On the 9th of September 2019, they will be celebrating 50 years of service!
“I strongly believe that we all need to be ready to make lives and the environment better in any way that we can. It will not be good enough to give only what we have extra or left over, but we must truly give of ourselves. And this is what the Rotaract Club of Colombo aims to do every day” – Amie Peiris (President, Rotaract Club of Colombo)
Rotaract club’s service projects address today’s most critical issues, such as poverty, education, violence, hunger, and the environment. RCC’s community service initiatives include interaction with our beneficiaries as far as possible, which helps members to understand better the needs of the community we live in.
They find ways to improve the quality of life of those in the community by addressing vital needs, help the vulnerable and marginalized in society such as children, the elderly and those who are differently-abled, create awareness about key issues and most importantly, fundraising to support worthy causes.

ROTARACT KARTING CHAMPIONSHIP
“Kart racing, or karting, is commonly viewed as the stepping stone to the more serious ranks of motorsports. This can be a fun and economical way for beginners to try racing. Karting is also a fully-fledged international sport in its own right with a devoted following. Karting can prepare the driver for high-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by helping to develop quick reflexes, precision car control, and decision-making skills. A large proportion of professional racing drivers such as Formula One champions Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, and Jensen Button began their career by racing karts, often at a very young age.” – Dushan Kumarasinghe (Rotaract Karting Championship Chairperson 2019)
