OUR MOTTO

SERVICE ABOVE SELF

For more than 110 years, our guiding principles have been the foundation of our values: service, fellowship, diversity, integrity, and leadership.

Rotary Club of Barking was chartered on June 19, 1929. We have been serving the borough for more than 85 years. It was established with the objective to facilitate meeting new people, having fun, putting something back to the community and enjoying new experiences. Our main activities include a variety of projects in the areas of community, kids with special needs, health, literacy etc.

Throughout the year we organise events that either directly help a cause or raise money for it. Our club gives you an opportunity to join leaders to take action on important issues affecting our community, our nation, and the world. We also have a lot of fun — whether we’re socializing or working together on service projects.

ROTARY FOR ALL AGES

Rotary club members are men and women of all ages, ranging from the young professional (a rapidly growing membership segment!) to the more experienced (including retired), and professional backgrounds who use their talents, skills, and energy to improve the lives of people in communities at home and around the world. The clubs encourage young kids 7-12 years of age to make a difference in the society and generate new ideas. They are involved in small fund raising programs in local schools and sponsored events.

Interact clubs programmes are organized for young people aged 12 to 18 years by involving them in fun and learning activities. Such programmes are conducted in secondary schools / colleges and organized with an annual frequency of two projects.

Rotaract is a unique international service organization for people of age groups between 18 and 30 and gives an opportunity to young adults to meet new people, make friends and contribute in social cause which will be beneficial for entire society. This gathering also gives a chance of personality improvement and promotes better relations between people worldwide between people and service. Rotary regularly conducts youth exchange programs, which in turn gives thousands of young people the opportunity to visit various places around the world, meet new people, experience different cultures and discover various aspects of life. Students get a chance to rediscover themselves and experience a different way of life, learn a new language and make new friends.

Rotary Club is actively involved in scholarships for graduates and post graduate students at overseas universities aligned in the six areas of focus.
