Members of the Rotaract Club of St. Andrew handing over their donation of Professional wear to Dress for Success Jamaica last Thursday, March 14, 2019.

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.

On January 12, 2019, the Rotaract Club of New Kingston started the new year the right way. They coordinated a Treat for the Homeless at the Marie Atkins Night Shelter on Hanover Street, Downtown, Kingston.

Suga Lifestyle was more than happy to be a sponsor for the event, along with Jamaica Producers, Kirk Distributors Ltd., Cari-Med Ltd., Best Dressed Jamaica Ltd. and Refresh Beauty Soap.

I saw the event through and it was a success once again this year. Persons that lived at the home along with other members of the surrounding community, came out in their numbers to receive various services and items offered such as Medical checks, Dental and Cleaning checks, HIV Screening, Personal Grooming, Eye screening by the Lions Club, Canned Food and Clothing Donations.

Suga was delegated the task of adding a personal touch to speak to attendees about proper Nutrition. Their options may have been limited, but points made by conversations with several of them were of great help. For instance, to choose boiled ground provisions instead of rice and peas or plain rice and to drink water instead of sugary, fruit punch or fruit juices.
