‘Speak Up!’ is an initiative by the club under the ‘Professional Development’ avenue which aims at imparting basic communication and public speaking skills for secondary school students to provide these students with an important skill set which may not be a part of their school curriculum.
The speak up module covers topics like elocutions, debates and group discussions.
The project is divided into TWO phases:
Train the Trainers – Where the volunteers will be trained by a professional trainer on aspects of public speaking for the students of 8th and 9th standard.
Training – Where the students will be trained by the volunteers in basic aspects of public speaking through interactive games and other activities for 4 sessions.
Talent Fiesta is an event that gives individuals with disabilities a platform to showcase their talents through various forms of performing arts and fine arts.
Over 300 students from various parts of Mumbai participate in the event.
It’s a competition wherein everyone who participates, wins, because we believe that each and every one of the participants is a winner in their own right. Details of the event are given in the attached event letter.
We believe that Talent Fiesta will enable participants to display their creative potential, be it through Performing Arts or Fine Arts.
Some of the reputed institutions that are a part of this project are NASEOH, Rochiram School for Hearing Handicapped, Sevadaan, Visions Bhandup and Borivali to name a few.
Many of us feel joyous in the beginning of the month when our salaries kick in. However, with privilege comes responsibilities to give back to the society and the community that has nurtured us and helped us grow.
We at RC Deonar conduct monthly donation drives for the less privileged around us and try to lighten up our surroundings with more smiles. Toys, books, ration, sanitary napkins, umbrellas and many more seasonal drives are a part of the initiative.
Who said serving the community is only about service to others? A service to self is a service to the society too. Hire me is a professional development initiative that includes speaker sessions about getting yourself prepped for the bigger world.
From resumes to exploring various disciplines of study and the role of emotional intelligence in work force, Hire Me focuses on market trends and attempts to prepare youngsters for a better tomorrow.
RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards that are conducted by the Rotary and the Rotaract Clubs in order to encourage the youth in forums of “Leadership”, “Communication”, “Confidence” and “Self Development”. This platform is meant for pushing the youth out of their comfort zone in order to test themselves, learn and gain as much as possible from opportunities provided.
Deonar RYLA is a two day leadership camp that includes speaker sessions and activities for the youth. We assure self growth in every participant. Not only is RYLA a life changing experience, it motivates and challenges each individual to the fullest.
Festives meaning celebrations for Deonar. Gala night and secret santa is our own club service way of half yearly celebrations. A fun, homely night and a few gifts is all it takes to bring smiles.
A single pint can save three lives, a single gesture can spread a million smiles. With that being said, we begin the year with an endeavour to save lives. This initiative of blood donation camp lead by Rotary and Rotaract District 3141 is a combined effort of Rotary and Rotaract club of Deonar and has been adopted for many years.
