Fellowship Session with Rotaract District 2760 (Aichi Prefecture, Japan)

Rotaract District 3300 Malaysia had organized a fellowship session with Rotaractors from District 2760 of the prefecture of Aichi in Japan on the 18th of February 2017. District 3300 played host to approximately 20 Rotaractors from Japan. The Rotaractors got acquainted with one another and bonded over lunch. Following the lunch session, there was a sharing session, where representatives from each club present at the event gave an insight into past service projects. A cultural workshop was also held, which gave the participants the opportunity to play various traditional games of both of Japanese and Malaysian origin respectively. Besides participating in this cultural workshop, the Rotaractors also got the chance to go on a sightseeing tour in various places in Kuala Lumpur such as Bukit Bintang and KLCC.

Despite being exhausted at the conclusion of the event, the Rotaractors enjoyed themselves, relishing the rare opportunity to be acquainted with people from another country and learn about cultures they have not previously known. Despite the language barrier between Malaysian and Japanese Rotaractors, the participants made the effort to forge new friendship and build camaraderie between one another. This event was a success as the objectives were achieved: to expand social networks, and to build camaraderie with Rotaractors from other countries. It is hoped that this bonding session would pave the way for a collaboration with Rotaract clubs from other countries for future events and projects.
