Interact Club

 

Interact-Club-Montage-2021

Raffles Institution’s Interact Club is the first Interact Club set up in Singapore by the Rotary Club and since its beginnings, it has continued to be a club where we nurture the heart and soul of like-minded Rafflesians through service. By providing students with the opportunities to spearhead and participate in meaningful service-learning initiatives, interactors learn to develop a better understanding of the community’s needs and a deeper respect for others through their interactions with the underprivileged elderly and children in Singapore.
