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.
 
 
 
 
The Online English Learning Project launched by RCT has as mission to Facilitate growing Mindsets and Stimulating Interest in Learning
 
We are putting together 2 Bilingual High Schools and 3 Primary schools to help the elementary school students to learn and practice English.
 
This year more than 60 high-school students from Taipei European Schools and Asia American International Academy volunteered to be the teachers!
Dan Lu Elementary School, Da Guang Elementary School and Yong Gang Elementary School from the more disfavored region of the Southern part of Taiwan participated in the exchange, with more then 66 students involved.
 
Our project is structured in a continuous learning mode
The conexion is built around the RCT Website where Students can connect and deliver/receive classes. We have created automated processes to ensure attendance and correct connection between mentors and students
 
What counts are the children, to give them an opportunity to grow!
For the mentors, it is also a great opportunity to experience that they can make the difference in the life of others!
 
 
 
On October 7 -9, The Rotary Club of Taipei led by Mr. Andy Malanga, the 2021-22 president of the Rotary Club, went south to Mudan Township, Pingtung County the southernmost tip of Taiwan. The entourage included Professor Hwa Kuoyuan, Dr. William Choi, and Chairman Lin Junhong, Mr. Tomas Lutovsky and others.  We were received by Secretary Tsai Chongren.  Later that day and the next the entourage met indigenous people from that area.
