We Are One Country, One Rotaract

The Pilipinas Rotaract Multi-District Information Organization (MDIO) was formed by all the ten Rotary International districts in the Philippines to serve as information, communication and learning resource center for Rotaractors in the country.

WHAT IS ROTARACT?

Rotaract is a service club for young people ages 18 to 30 who are dedicated to finding innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges while developing leadership skills and making friends from around the world.

Rotaract clubs decide how to organize and run their own clubs, manage their funds, and plan and carry out activities and service projects that are important to their communities. Rotary clubs that sponsor Rotaract clubs offer guidance and support and work with Rotaractors as partners in service.
