Cycling for Trees 2022
 

RCPI members are committed to service so naturally that they found new ways to serve through Fellowships. Many fellowships take on service projects leveraging their networks and resources. And so did the group of RCPI developing a charity programme Cycling for Trees - turning their miles into Czech crowns and also seeking sponsors from the club who are not pedaling to support their activity. The finances raised support environmental projects in a form planting trees alongside cycling alleys in cooperation with Nadace Partnerstvi (https://www.nadacepartnerstvi.cz/Co-delame/Projekty/Sazime-budoucnost). 

In 2021, we raised CZK 100,000 to plant an alley near Příbram, and in 2022, we aim for the same amount to plant the alley in Račiněves (Říp area). It will be a big event under the auspices of Czech Prime Minister and attended by many distinguished guests taking place on October 28th, 2022. The alley will be named - Nick Winton Alley - to commemorate a heroic deed of Sir Nicolas Winton saving 669 Jewish children back in 1939. There will be a public debate reflecting refugee issues then and today - taking place on Oct 27th in the Municipal Library, Prague. The son of Sir Winton Nicky Winton will take part as well our fellow Ukrainian refugees who live in Prague and are supported by our Club. 

Date: Annually; April through October

Rotary Dragon Boat Charity Challenge 2023
 
Dragon Boat Charity Challenge is an event which is is fast becoming the premier charity event of a Prague spring. It’s an event that combines team-building, corporate social responsibility, live entertainment and family fun in one great program. The sight of teams of highly motivated paddlers going all out for the finish line makes an exciting spectacle that draws big crowds.
 
In the past years we raised about CZK 500,000 each year.

Speechless Reconciliation 2023
 
This program is referred to as „Speechless Reconciliation“ because not all of the participants have a common language. Although translation will be available, the focus is on young adults (15-21 year) from six different countries finding common ground and comprehending each other without language in common, through body language, facial expressions, tone of voice and other cues. We believe that an initial encounter that is coupled with a longer-term continuity of contact between several groups of these youth can be an engine that helps transform the way they live and think about each other, and contribute to a more stable region.
 
Date: Annually, August

End Polio Now
 
In 1985, with the launch of its flagship PolioPlus program, Rotary became the visionary organization to take on the ambitious goal to end polio worldwide. At that time, polio crippled more than 350,000 children per year in 125 countries. Over the next 35 years, we have mobilized other partners, governments, and communities to immunize the world’s children against polio. We’ve kept our promise to work toward eradicating this disease, and the leadership, commitment, and generosity of Rotary members has brought the world 99.9 percent of the way there.
RCPI contributes regularly to End Polio Now through meeting collections, Vesela Koruna.
 
Date: On-going
