Community Services

The pulse of Rotary Club of Bangalore is the Service it has provided to the less fortunate in society for over 8 decades.

“ I expect to pass through this life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show ,or any good thing I can do to any fellow human being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it,as I will not pass this way again.”

William Penn

The pulse of Rotary Club of Bangalore is the  Service it has provided  to the less fortunate  in society for over 8 decades.

2 areas of people’s lives where RCB strives to make the most  difference are Health and Education.
The Rotary TT Blood Bank , The Rotary Mutthappa Attavar Memorial Hospital, the Rotary Bangalore ICICI Prudential Dialysis Centre,   Stem-Cell Registry are a few of   the many major health initiatives of Rotary Club of Bangalore.

It goes without saying that the Club is a  front runner in Rotary’s fight to eradicate Polio. Now that it has been eradicated from India , RCB continues the  vigilance and efforts regardless, to maintain this status.

An array of  ongoing health initiatives include Blood Donation Camps, Paedriatric Heart Surgeries,  the limb –a-day programme and many more. Use Pictures and text from the RCB brochure).

Rotary Club of Bangalore    considers education for underprivileged boys and girls its  moral duty  to fulfill. Towards this it owns and manages its own High school,  Rotary Bangalore Vidyalaya which educates  around 500 boys and girls. Situated in Nagadevanahalli , Bangalore ,the spacious and fully equipped  school  with its experienced staff is a symbol of good  education.

Around 200 scholarships are also offered to poor students by the Menda  and Hyagriv Education funds.

Besides its own school RCB has built  20  Primary schools in Bangalore and 20 in the rural area of Malur , close to Bangalore.

The Light-for-education project donates solar lamps to rural school going children. The project is also providing solar lighting to Government Girls Hostels in Karnataka.  A very successful project,it has seen the attendance and academic results of students  improve dramatically.

Taking the Matching Grant and Global Grant  route of  Rotary International’s force multipliers,  the club has increased its financial ability many fold  to  undertake bigger projects like constructing Toilet Blocks, donating ambulances and providing school infra structure..

Besides Health and Education, Rotary Club of Bangalore has expanded its scope of Community Service to now cover Rotary International’s 6 Areas of Focus.
