Rotary Community Corps (RCCs) are teams of men and women who work in partnership with Rotary clubs to improve their communities. RCC members may be farmers, teachers, shop owners, or even retirees, but they all share a commitment to their communities’ long-term development. They bring enthusiasm, creativity, and sustainability to the projects they design and carry out.
There are more than 8000 corps in 90 countries. Some examples of their work include:
- The RCC of Alexandria Sunrise in Egypt provided new toilets, drinking faucets and an improved playground to the local school in their community.
- The RCC of Chowbaga in India provides free medical checkups and treatment to women and children from poor communities
- The RCC of Chandi-Bhanjyang in Chitwan assisted with post-earthquake relief efforts in Nepal by providing food supplies to families in the community.
