Rotary Community Corps

Two Clubs in our Zone 3 have shown remarkable dedication to establish the Rotary Community Corps...Rotary Club of Chandigarh and Chandigarh Central.
In our Zone 3, on August 9 the first RCC was set up in Colony No.5. And today, October 21, the second RCC has been set up in village Kishangarh.
My compliments to Rtn. Pres G.S. Lakhmna of Rotary Chandigarh and Rtn. Pres. H.S. Saggu of Chandigarh Central.
While RCC in Colony No 5 has seen active involvement of 20 RCC members in two massive medical camps organised by the Club in the colony.
The RCC Kishangarh is looking at bringing about improvements in garbage disposal, sanitation, paving the 'kutcha' streets, drainage system, and even expediting the construction of a High School-cum-playground-cum-community centre with the help of the Chandigarh Education Department and Administration.
Mr Nirmal Singh, the Principal of Government Middle School in the village is one of the key member and motivator with Sarpanch of the village Devender Lobana rearing to get into action with his plans.
While RCC at Colony No 5 (sponsored by Rotary Chandigarh) caters to nearly 40,000 population of slum dwellers, the village Kishangarh has a population of over 10,000.
RCC is the most innovative and highly effective concept that can engage the community in bringing about the change they want in their neighbourhood through their own physical and financial involvements with Rotary providing the leadership, direction, and resourcefulness.
I have no doubt other Rotary Clubs in our zone shall also follow suit and move ahead in this direction.
My congratulations to both the club presidents for their success with RCC.
