This year is special because of a few significant occasions for Rotary and Rotaract in Lithuania. Not only history of Rotary started 80 years ago, as anniversary was celebrated together with the initiation of RI District 1462, but also Rotaract marks 20 years of outstanding service in Lithuania.Rotaract club Kaunasis the first club chartered in 1994.
Today there are 8 active Rotaract clubs within Lithuania which unite nearly 200 young perspective leaders eager to make positive change within the society and manifest values of Rotaract in their everyday activities. What is essential to mention, through the history of organization a number of former Rotaractors are now members of Rotary clubs and continue their mission on a wider scale while still participating in major annual projects they had begun in order to achieve continuity.
This wide society is the main reason why Rotaract in Lithuania has managed to maintain the practice of successful projects and now counts decades of great experience. A few to mention would be “Rubber duck racing“ of Rotaract club Vilnius, “Rotary academy“ – developed to be country wide project conducted by 6 clubs so far, tuberculosis prevention programs and many more. Serving for the society motivates us and makes us proud to know we help hundreds of people every year.
Considering ourselves as quite young but mature community of Rotaractors in terms of service and self-development, at this anniversary westart directing towards international experience. We encourage our members to participate in various Rotary events abroad, hosting and taking part in youth exchanges. In a few years we look forward to hosting one of Rotaract European Meetings and show you the beautiful country you probably have not been to – Lithuania.
