Developing Leaders of the Future
All Rotary Club encourage young people up to the age of 30 years to improve their life skills to ensure a better future, while recognising the diversity of their needs.
Many Rotary projects support the fundamental needs of our Youth,
namely, health, human values, education and self development.
