RCA Meeting 08 Dec. focused on intercultural dialogue, rotary support for health care and building bridges between global youth leadership structures - Rotaract and AIESEC
At the charity evening of the Rotary Club of Almaty, we met
They discussed the unique work of the Italian architect Marco Bravura, who creates masterpieces from mosaics around the world and the author of the magical fountains of Beirut and Ravenna. For our project of the year Almaty Fountains is a very tempting area of cooperation.
We got acquainted with the international student association AIESEC - the de facto sister city of Rotarakta. In 2.5 minutes, Sabina Akhmetov, President-Elect of the Almaty Office of Ice Checkers, told us about the huge contribution of AIESEC to the formation of leadership, volunteering and educational exchanges for students around the world.
It can be said that AIESEC is rotary-run RYLA non-stop.
We believe that Rotary's structure for youth affairs - Interact (schools), Rotaract (students and working youth) - Rotary fits perfectly into AIESEC graduates who can find their place in Rotaract for a phased transition to the mature stage of Rotarians.
President of the Rotaract Club of Almaty Zhangir Tuyakov spoke in detail about the actions planned by the revived rotarators for pupils of orphanages and registration on the qazvolunteer.kz platform.
We got acquainted with the problematic aspects in the work of the city Mental Health Center in pursuance of the Memorandum with the Almaty City Health Department. Sapar Kuttybayevich showed us a short fragment of a film about what serious potential for social adaptation of patients of the Mental Health Center remains untapped and what socially responsible businessmen and patrons of the arts can do to correct the situation.
We learned about a very advanced and promising startup from Yakutia RERAD - uniting radiologists and neurologists from around the world on a single digital platform for consultations and mentoring. Thanks to my friend Rotary from Yakutia Leonid Klarov.
