Interact District 9212

Interact provides an opportunity for young people to work together in a world fellowship dedicated to service and international understanding. 

What is Interact?

Interact is a club for young people aged between 12 and 18 who want to work together to tackle the issues in their community. Clubs benefit from sponsorship by individual  Rotary and Rotaract clubs or can be co-sponsored by Rotary and Rotaract clubs, which provide support and guidance.  

Interact clubs are self-governing and self-supporting and can be either institution or community based. The name Interact is a combination of the words international and action. With clubs in over 120 countries and geographical areas, Interact is truly an international phenomenon.

Interact in Rotary District 9212 covers Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan and currently stands at 155 clubs both institution and community based.

Interact is Both Work and Play!

Interact is a service club, which means you will do work. It gives members the opportunity to work with other individuals, clubs and countries for a greater cause.  In Interact, members learn to depend on each other, share ideas, and build leadership skills. Although there is work involved, it should be emphasized that there is fun for all as well, the social and service aspects of the club blend together.

What does an Interact Club do?

Interact provides an opportunity for young people to work together in a world fellowship dedicated to service and international understanding.  Interact clubs organize a variety of projects and activities, depending primarily on the interests of the club members.  However, within the Interact program, all clubs undertake activities to enhance leadership skills, serve their community, and expand international understanding. Together, these activities ensure a balanced club program and provide important experience and opportunities for the personal development of each member. Each club carries out local service projects that benefit its community or school, such as fundraisers for a variety of causes, blood drives, benefit concerts, and visits to nursing homes, and homeless shelters. Members also develop international service projects that expand their understanding of the world and promote goodwill such as cultural exchanges.
