WHAT WE DO

Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime.

A guiding philosophy of The Vocational Sevice Team at RCB.The Rotarians at RCB realise that there are millions in the country who are unable to earn a living wage.due to illetracy,insufficient education and lack of  skills and is determined to break this demeaning cycle of poverty which leads to grievous health issues, crime, substance abuse,and other anti social  activities. Though the task may seem insurmontable,RCB’s Vocational Service Committee relentlessly pursues its mission to educate and impart skills  training at the lowest levels.

A permanent VocationalTraining Centre has been built in the premises of Rotary Bangalore Vidyalaya in 2013 with facilities for training in computers, garment design and tailoring, facility management , retail and health. Regular programs are conducted here for adult literacy,written and spoken English,geriatrics, nursing,career & empolymemt counsellingResponding immediately in 2014 to the  Prime Minister’ s call to Make in India, RCB signed an MOU with National Skill Developement Corporation , New Delhi, ,to synchronise its own efforts with   Indian industry’s most required skills. The Vocational Service Committee has  also instituted  awards  to  recognise and symbolically raise the self esteem of  people who serve society at the grassroot levels. One such award is the annual Pride of Workmanship Award which has been awarded to   committed and dedicated workers like Manhole Cleaners,Police Constables and Artisans among others.The NGO Award and the Corporate  Citizen Award on the other hand are awards that recognize and give an impetus to NGO’s and Corporates in Bangalore who like Rotary provide selfless service to the needy.
