Welcome to the Rotary Club of Taipei

 
The Rotary Club of Taipei (RCT) belongs to District 3481 and home to Past Rotary International President Gary C.K Huang (2014-2015). RCT was chartered on October 9, 1948.  The Charter Club President was C.K. Yen, Former President of the Republic of China. We are the FIRST Rotary Club in Taiwan and one of only three English-speaking clubs in D3481.

RCT’s Remote Online English Education Project links Taipei European School (TES) and Asia America International Academy (AAIA) with elementary schools in Pintung.
The junior mentors and young learners finally met face to face for the first time at the Meet & Greet in Pingtung last Friday after two years of Covid closure.
 
It was a long trip full of excitement and fulfillment. We were deeply touched when seeing the smiles of the students.
Helping others makes you feel more useful and happier!
 
The more you give, the more you get! So true is the Rotary motto: One profits most who serves the best!
 
 
IPP Andy, Rtn. Tea and Rtn. Tudor joined the CTBC Anti-drug Foundation and the DEA Basketball team to visit the Sanzhi Elementary School and introduce to the young kids, our future leaders, the dangers of doing drugs.
 
It was really impressive to listen to Andy's very powerful presentation. The key was not only to send the message, and ensure the kids where 100% tuned to it, but to make the kids think by themselves and help them to act right. For example, Andy gave them great ideas of how to answer when someone offer them drugs.
After the presentation we went to the kids to the gymnasium and the DEA Basketball team taught them some moves and played. Some of the quizzes were incorporated to the games to try to have a lasting impact!
 
Very meaningful program that we will continue to support!

This year, out of the initiative of P Museum, RC Taipei has organized a 5-minute "Rotary Story" session at each weekly luncheon to briefly introduce a topic on Rotary History. Welcome to check out the presented files and discover Rotary through time!
 
This week topic was presented by PP Building (Dennis Liao) on The History of Rotary in Taiwan.
We learned that the first Rotary Club in Taiwan was actually the The Rotary Club of Taihoku chartered in 1931. Together with some other clubs they stopped functioning in 1945 when the Japanese left Taiwan 
 
Our club, RCT was the First Rotary Club after WWII. It was chartered on October 9, 1948 (by help of RC Kunming) with 33 members. Charter president is C.K. Yen, past president of Republic of China (Taiwan).
June 2nd 2022 we had a special Guest Speaker, our own P. Andy.
In a breathtaking presentation he went through some of the lessons learned from his experience in the DEA.
 
1st We all have a choice!
Our character is made of the decision that we made. Most of drug trafficker act out of greed looking at instant gratifications without thinking at the consequences
2nd The most dangerous phrase in our language is “We’ve always done it this way”. Always prepare for the unexpected. “We don’t rise to the level of our expectations; we fall to the level of our training” (Archilocus)
3rd People need purpose! The best success is to see people succeeding and having a goal! A life without clear purpose is like driving with no destination and o directions.
