┬áRotaract is Waldorf University’s service learning club. It has close ties to the community and Forest City’s branch of Rotary International.

The clubs have collaborated to raise money for a well in Uganda. Members of Rotaract came up with an idea to do a big sale to raise money, and they did so for four days in the Waldorf atrium.

Many of the members baked goods and worked the bake sale, trying to encourage other Waldorf students to aid their cause.

The well is being purchased through a program called Hope For Kids. Hope For Kids helps children internationally, and has many opportunities such as international trips, volunteer opportunities, children sponsorships, boarding school programs, water initiatives, constructive projects and other community programs.

At the moment, Rotaract is involved with Water For Kids international to restore hope to those who have been suffering from dysentery and drinking dirty water. Raising money will help provide them with clean water and better hygiene.
