New Rotaract club sees potential

Felix Chaudhary
Monday, March 03, 2014

SOCIAL media played a big role in developing an interest among youths in Nadi to revive a civil society organisation and assist the less fortunate in their community.

Rotaract Club of Suva president Kristyn Lobendahn said a training program followed by the induction of 15 youths into the newly-formed Rotaract Club of Nadi New Horizons was brought about in part by the powerful imagery and messages displayed on the popular social media platform, Facebook.

"Young people saw the work we were doing in Suva through our posts on Facebook and there were many requests for the club to be revived in Nadi," the 29-year-old said.

"As a result of this, we managed to get 15 people together who underwent training on what Rotaract is all about and how we operate.

"These youths are the revival of an organisation that used to exist up until 2004 and I am proud to say that they are very enthusiastic and want to play an active role in society."
