Rotary Club of Central Calcutta of Rotary International District 3291, was chartered in August 1984. The club has sponsored six Rotary Community Corps (RCC) situated in Hooghly & South 24 Parganas. The Club is proud to have a very active & supportive Inner Wheel Club. During the past 29 years, the club has initiated several rural village development activities, towards Swanirbharta (Self Reliance) through the RCCs. Several villages have been fully sanitized and have also been provided with safe drinking water. Vocational Training Centers have been set up towards self employment. The club every year distributes blankets, mosquito nets, agricultural tools & equipment and thousands of fruit tree saplings, which improve the environment, provide nutritious food and more importantly are a source of income, specially for the woman folk. Primary schools and education & training in modern methods of agriculture, pisciculture, poultry & animal husbandry is a regular feature. The club promotes Rotary’s Blindness Prevention projects by providing Light to hundreds every year through IOL cataract surgeries. The club through its RCC-Human Development Centre, has sponsored an eye hospital at Jaynagar and is setting up another at Kakdweep – deep in the Sundarban area, South 24 Parganas.
