Rotary Community Corps
What is a Rotary Community Corps?
A Rotary Community Corps (RCC) is a group of non-Rotarian men and women who share Rotarians' commitment to service. Under the guidance of a sponsoring Rotary Club, dedicated RCC members put heir own skills to work to improve the quality of life in their community.
Since 1985, the Rotary Community Corps programme has been spurring economic development and self-sufficiency in communities around the world. The programme promotes grass-root self-help projects, develops local leadership abilities, maximises local resources, and uses appropriate cost-effective technologies.
The Goals of Rotary Community Corps
All RCCs share four major goals:
To encourage individuals to take responsibility for improvement of their community, village, or neighbourhood.
To recognise the dignity and value of all useful occupations.
To mobilise self-help activities and collective work to improve the quality of life.
To encourage the development of human potential to its fullest, within the context of the local culture and community.
The Goals of Rotary Community Corps
Rotary Club of Kuala Lumpur DiRaja established the Rotary Community Corps of Kampung Sungei Lui during Keow Hock Sneah's presidency (2002 / 03), the charter certificate having been signed by RI Past President Bhichai Rattakul of Thailand. The village is located in Hulu Langat, Selangor.
Puan Zahara, the daughter-in-law of RC Kuala Lumpur's 1965 / 66 President, the late Tan Sri Dato' Abdul Jamil Rais who was also District Governor RI District 330 in 1975 / 76, is the driving force at RCC Kampung Sg. Lui. She is ably assisted by a team of volunteers - including her husband - to spearhead RC Kuala Lumpur DiRaja's effort to improve the lives of the villagers and provide education enhancement to young students.
Since the RCC's establishment, a general health screening campaign was carried out under a joint project with Siemens Malaysia and Gleneagles Hospital, Kuala Lumpur; under RI's 'Read to Me' programme, cassette recorders, pre-recorded English language tapes and reading material were donated in a joint project with the Inner Wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur; computers were also donated; the latest and most significant project was the construction of a library and resource centre in the centre of the village. This was fully funded by RC Kuala Lumpur DiRaja and the initial supply of books was donated by RC Yeovil, United Kingdom.

What are Probus Clubs?
Probus clubs are organisations for men and women who have retired from their profession or business and want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests. Each Probus club is sponsored by a Rotary club, although the latter's involvement varies from country to country and the Probus clubs enjoy autonomy once formed.
Probus clubs were first formed, as an acronym of Pro(fessional) and Bus(iness), in the early 1920s in Canada and USA. However, the name was fused into a different type of club in England, and the first non-sectarian Probus club was formed there in 1966.
Today, Probus claims to have more than 300,000 members in thousands of clubs worldwide, the largest concentration being in Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.
Probus Club Activities?
Probus club members are largely active volunteers in many community organisations and many have formed smaller interest groups under the Probus umbrella. This include groups for hobbies such as fishing, sports, entertainment, bridge playing, travel, etc.
Probus clubs typically meet once a month for fellowship and to hear guest speakers. There are no attendance or service requirements.
Probus Club of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor
The Probus Club of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor was chartered during the presidency of Dr Hardeep Singh (1993-94) with Rtn Louis Cheah providing the inspiration, motivation and the necessary ground work. Two of its members are Rotarians of Rotary Club of Kuala Lumpur DiRaja - PDG Dato' (Dr) Haji Mustapha Ma and PP Dato' Haji Kamarulzaman bin Mohamed.

KL Rotary Charity Foundation
It was circa 1958 that the Kuala Lumpur Rotary Charity Foundation was first mooted. Members of RC Kuala Lumpur had complained that since the club had a large membership, the Sunshine Box collections through the fining sessions that were the norm in those days took too much time. It was reasoned that the setting up of the foundation would ensure that each and every member would contribute to the Charity Fund for which he would be given a tax exempt receipt.
Subsequently, during the presidency of Len W. Kaye (1959 / 60) the foundation was duly registered and tax exempt status obtained from the Treasury. Fixed annual contributions were determined by the club to be paid separately to the Kuala Lumpur Rotary Charity Foundation at the same time as the club dues.
The Kuala Lumpur Rotary Charity Foundation incorporates various charity funds and other designated funds established during the terms of various presidents of the club, the earliest probably being the Gammans Memorial Scholarship Fund, which goes back to PP L. S. Sodhy who was club president in Rotary year 1963 / 64.
Monies for the Kuala Lumpur Rotary Charity Foundation have been and are received via outright donations, through charity functions organised by the club and of course, the annual KLRCF dues paid by the members.
Generally speaking, the various funds generate yearly income which is then used for the execution of selected projects in compliance with the corresponding fund rules and Malaysian tax exempt laws.
The Kuala Lumpur Rotary Charity Foundation is managed by the KLRCF management committee which comprises members of the club and the incumbent club president.
Individual funds are targeted towards scholarships, vocational training, emergency relief, youth and handicapped children.
During the presidency of Attan Akmar (2007-08) an amalgamation exercise was carried out to group together funds of similar objectives, reducing the number of funds to a more manageable number. This result is shown below. Since then, however, a new dedicated fund has been established.
