RVCC Rotaract club students had a great opportunity to discover new culture, and an opportunity to be a truly global citizen as part of the Youth Exchange program with the Rotaract clubs in Nepal. These Rotaractors were sponsored by the Rotary club of Branchburg and the Asha Project, USA-Nepal.
During my 2014 visit to Nepal to attend my high school friend PDG Dilendra Shrestha’s District Conference in Pokhara, I had an opportunity to meet with the Rotaract club of Newroad Pokhara members and we discussed about starting an exchange program to unlock their true potential to:
Develop lifelong leadership skills;
Learn about new culture;
Building ever lasting friendships with Rotaract students from Nepal and to become a true global citizen.
As the world becomes a small global village, people have opportunity to learn about other countries and people through internet. But having a real opportunity to meet, and greet is different experience.
During our 2016 visit, we met again helped to facilitate leadership session and finalize the exchange program. Our 2017 Rotaract team had a great time in this second Annual Youth Exchange and Humanitarian service mission to Nepal. We hope to host the students from Nepal in near future.
