History of RCRLC
The Rotaract Club of Rizvi Law College was born in the year 2008 under the aegis of Rotary Club of Nariman Point. Rotarian Adv. Kamlesh Kharade, the then President of Rotary Club of Nariman Point infused us Rizvi-ites with the spirit of service above self and urged us to have a Rotaract Club of our own. The 1st programme after the installation was a Blood Donation drive at Churchgate. The same year, the college also participated in the RYLA camp and Miss Marina Sheikh, our immediate past President was crowned as RYLA Queen.
Subsequently, under the Presidentship of Rotaractor Ms. Ranak Patel, more programmes were organized along with routine Blood Donation camp. Under the leadership of our next President Mr. Aditya Mohan, the Rotaract Club of Rizvi Law College organized a “Recycle Day” wherein we collected used papers and recycled it. Several programmes were organized in collaboration with other Rotaract Clubs. On 1nd October, World Elder’s Day was celebrated in collaboration with an NGO, “Silver Innings” at Dadar where a special talent show for senior citizens was organized. The unique effort proved to be a huge hit.
Under the Presidentship of Gurdeep Sachar and later Bharathy Palaniappan, the Rotaract Club of Rizvi Law Law College scaled new heights with programmes which were better organized and attracted a good crowd to the events. The cultural event of the older citizens called Umag became a hit. The Rotaract also participated in rallies for the rights of children under the ageis of Save The Children Fund.
Under the Presidentship of Siddharth Jaiswal, the activities expanded to include tree plantation in Nilshi with the YMCA Mumbai Central and also around the College in Bandra.
Our president for academic year 2011-2012 started a new initiative by celebrating world youth day to spread awareness about smoking. The day was marked as non-smoking day and was indeed enlightening. The Rotaractors visited an old age home named Kisan Gopal Rajpuria Vanprasthashram, situated in Bhayandar(w). The rotaractors enlightened the senior citizens with the laws made for their benefit. They spent memorable time with the “ajobas” and “aajis”. The senior citizens sang and even the rotaractors sung a song for them. We gifted them with some basic necessities.
The journey of our Rotaract Club has been long and memorable and there is more on the way.
