On October 28 Interact celebrates its 20th anniversary


On October 28 Interact celebrates its 20th anniversary. Interact was formed in 2003 and its first meetings were held in Secondary School #17. Since 2009, Interact has changed its location to First City Gymnasia. Since then, the main program of its activity has been volunteering on the basis of the Cherkasy Regional Center for Social and Psychological Rehabilitation of Children, located in Cherkasy in Khimselyshche district.

Every Sunday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the members of Interact conduct service with the children of the institution: they organize leisure, entertainment, joint projects, etc. In addition, those who wish can work in the city animal shelter “Drug” (“Friend”) and in a geriatric boarding house. The club is actively engaged in international activities, the most successful was the RYLA project with Israel in 2012-2013 and a partnership with Interact in the Polish city of Jelenia Góra in 2010-2013.

Currently, there are 5-6 Interact clubs in Ukraine, some of them are relatively new and they are in a state of development.

Interact Club was created by the local Rotary Club "Cherkasy-Center", which takes care of its members. For its service Interact was awarded Certificate of the City Mayor and Certificate of the Department of Education and Humanitarian Policy of Cherkasy City Council. During the entire existence of Interact-Cherkasy, its activities did not stop for a single day.

On Saturday, October 28, representatives of all 4 city Rotary Clubs, the school administration and the public will congratulate the members of our Interact Club.
