Rotary Club Of Poovirundavalli

Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. It is a secular organization open to all persons regardless of race, colour, creed, religion, gender, or political preference. There are 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. The members of Rotary Clubs are known as Rotarians. Members usually meet weekly for breakfast, lunch or dinner, which is a social event as well as an opportunity to organize work on their service goals. Rotary’s primary motto is “Service above self”; an earlier motto, “One profits most who serves best “The object of Rotary is to encourage & foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society; The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life; The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

This objective is set against the “Rotary 4-way Test”, used to see if a planned action is compatible with the Rotarian spirit. The test was developed by Rotarian and entrepreneur Herbert J. Taylor during the Great Depression as a set of guidelines for restoring faltering businesses and was adopted as the standard of ethics by Rotary in 1942. It is still seen as a standard for ethics in business management

The 4-Way Test considers the following questions in respect to thinking, saying or doing:

Is it the truth?

Is it fair to all concerned?

Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

Will it be beneficial to all concerned? IACT is joint venture with Rotary Club of Pooviruntha Valli does its social service to all walks of life, in PSBB school Run by our trust it has Young Rotarians club called Inter-act club in that it has impacted by the students volunteers one who help themselves as well as in our school services to co-work with Rotarians events , Disciplining students, help the teachers and management in their various needs every year they celebrate the Inter act club day.

Women development

Promotion of self help groups:

Poverty is not just material deprivation but a continuous process of “Disempowerment” that includes denial of choices/rights/opportunities, discrimination, disparity, domination, displacement, de-humanization etc. Alleviating poverty does not end with meeting individuals’/people’s material needs.

Details of financial transaction the bank manager / field officer assesses the performance of SHG based on guidelines issued by NABARD and if found fulfilling the criteria, the SHG is sanctioned with credit facility. The credit is given to the group at substantially lesser interest rate. A repayment schedule is drawn up with the SHG and the loan is to be repaid regularly in small and frequent installments. The loan is the collective responsibility of the members. Self Help Groups movement was promoted by our Trust Indira Arumugam Charity Trust, as an empowerment body. Women are a vital part of Indian economy and major contributors to the survival of the family. The poorer the family, the greater is independence on women’s income.

Facilitating income generation activities

Women in rural areas of India suffer both economically and socially. As a result of their general status as second class citizens, development programmes do not take into account the aspirations of women, and are not effective in achieving their objectives. Rural women in our project area suffer from being invisible, both economically and socially. Economic invisibility stems from the perception that women are not relevant to waged or self employment. However, they have in fact been playing a very important and significant role. They have been engaged in a variety of occupations such as tailoring, beautician training live stock vending, nursery plants growing, small trading and vending. There is a need to empower these women and to strengthen their economic security.
