OUR PROJECTS AND CAUSES WE SUPPORT
European Cluster Project
We are a founder member of a European Rotary Club Contact group consisting of the Funkturm Rotary Club in Berlin, The Rosengarten Rotary Club in Bern and the Maribor Park Rotary Club in Maribor, Slovenia, in addition to our Club. Together, we work on global projects throughout the year and share fellowship at least once a year at our Cluster Club weekend.
To date, we have jointly sponsored two programmes within this projects, one involving raising considerable funds for needy children in the Maribor area and the other supporting the creation of a vocational education and training center for young adults in North Thailand, with the aim of helping reduce youth unemployment and break the vicious circle of poverty, drugs and prostitution.
The Rotary Club of Westminster East is the sponsoring club of the Westminster Rotaract Club. Rotaract provides an opportunity to be part of a fun, dynamic and unique International organisation for people aged 18-30. Rotaract offers a wide choice of social activities, actively supports your local community, raises money for charity and gives you the opportunity to develop your personal skills and gain new life experiences in the UK and abroad. There are about 100 clubs in Great Britain and Ireland, and more than 7,600 in 158 countries around the world. Each club organises its own social programme and service projects.
