CONNECT WITH ROTARACTORS IN ASIA PACIFIC
Join the 17th Asia Pacific Regional Rotaract Conference (Virtual) on March 13, 2021 (Saturday). Event is FREE but registration is required until March 10, 2021.
Expect whole day conference of inspirational talks from Rotary and Rotaract leaders, cultural sharings, and the Online Concert for a Cause.
Rotaract Clubs earn 2 GEAR Awards points for every validated Rotaractor attending APRRC.
SUPPORT FUNDRAISING PROJECT REACH
To celebrate World Rotaract Week with sustainable impact to Filipino communities, we launched a nationwide fundraising campaign to set-up radio-based learning delivery systems in five (5) schools in Tarlac, Philippines catering to indigenous Aeta students.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that suspended face-to-face classes, education has become even more difficult to Aeta students living in far-flung communities without gadgets and access to communication signals.
Donate any amount until March 13, 2021 and let us ensure that indigenous children will not be deprived of education that will help them reach their dreams. For every $10 donation accumulated, the Rotaract Club earns 1 point to qualify for the Pilipinas Rotaract Gear Awards for Exemplary Rotaract Clubs.
VIROFEST PHILIPPINE PERFORMERS
One of the highlights of the virtual 17th Asia Pacific Regional Rotaract Conference on March 13, 2021 is the Virofest, an online concert for a cause supporting Asia Pacific countries' COVID-19 response projects.
The Philippines will be showcasing eight (8) performances during VIROFEST.
One of the success measures of the VIROFEST is donations accumulated by participating countries. In this regard, we are encouraging Filipino Rotaractors to support our own fundraising project entitled Project REACH.
