Rotaract is a worldwide non-profit organization made up of young professionals between the ages of 18
and 30 years old. There are over 7,000 clubs in more than 163 countries with membership exceeding 180,000. In Jamaica, there are about 20 Rotaract Clubs, of which the Rotaract Club of St.
Andrew is a community – based service organization, sponsored by the Rotary Club of St. Andrew. It is comprised of young professionals committed to the commonality of improving inner-city communities and creating opportunities for promising individuals within the Kingston Metropolitan Area. Rotaract provides opportunities for Personal and Professional development of its members as well.

Last week was World Rotaract Week. Every year, Rotaractors and Rotarians around the world celebrate World Rotaract Week with various activities during the week of 13 March to commemorate the founding of the first club in 1968. It was a time for celebrating the success and importance of the Rotaract programme.

Last Thursday, March 14th, the Rotaract Club of St. Andrew donated Professional Wear to Dress for Success Jamaica as a part of their World Rotaract Week celebration.

Dress for Success Jamaica is also a non-profit organization. They empower women by providing them with work attire, training and support so that they can achieve economic independence.

Kudos to both organizations on the charitable work they continue to do to help build a better Jamaica. For more information or to become a part of these organizations, please see their information below.
