Interact is an international organization of service that fosters leadership and responsible citizenship and promotes international understanding and peace. Interact is a club for youth ages 12 to 18 who want to connect with others in their community or school.
Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. The name “Interact” was created by combining the words “international” and “action.” Interact clubs are sponsored by Rotary clubs, and they organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves and are included in Rotary International’s “Youth Services” Avenue of Service.
How We're Making a Difference
Interact 5150 in California is running a campaign with One World Play Project to raise ultra-durable One World Futbols for communities in Tanzania.
The One World Futbol is a soccer ball that never needs a pump and never goes flat, allowing children to play on without worrying about finding a pump or breaking the ball. This unique ball will enable the children who receive it to continue playing and experiencing the transformative power of play for years to come.
The One World Futbols raised through this campaign will create sustainable avenues for entertainment and stress relief for Tanzanian youth.
Through this campaign, Interact 5150 raised 50 One World Futbols for communities in Tanzania and $250 USD to improve the group’s events and publicity to help improve Bay Area communities and those around the world.
