 Rotary Club of Awka Hybrid has held it's first edition of all-new project tagged "Charity Hangout" and raised over $3000 for the foundation.

The Charity Hangout was  aimed at providing a unique timeout for quality persons to meet Rotary Leaders.

The event which took place  at X-Fit Luxury Centre in Awka, Anambra State of Nigeria and simultaneously anchored online attracted  quality people worthy of becoming members of Rotary as well as Rotarians alike that  met and received the Guest of the Day, District Governor-Elect of Rotary International District 9142, Rtn Grace OKARO. 

Governor OKARO led the "Share My Story" Session to engage and  enlighten the people present on different topics ranging from benefits of Rotary, personal fulfilling experiences and importance of living a life of charity.

She commended the Rotary Club of Awka Hybrid for the innovation behind the Club's model which enables members to participate in Rotary activities, both physically and virtually; while urging members not to relent on their noble efforts.


As a result of her charges and appreciation of the impact of the Charity Hangout 1.0, participants raised the sum of three thousand one hundred dollars in support of the Rotary Foundation with assurances of fulfilling all commitments before the formal Inauguration of the Club scheduled to hold in December, 2021.

In attendance were the District Secretary, Rtn Christian Chinedu AGALA; Club President of Awka Central, Rtn Mike ONYEKA; Rtn Charles CHIKA; Rtn Chido OBIUDU (IPP of Awka); Rtn Chika IBENEME; amongst others.



Also Some Club Members present were Rtn Emmanuel NNAGBO (Chair, Rotary Foundation), Rtn Kodinna ANEKWE (Chair, PolioPlus), Rtn Alochukwu OBIANUMUO (Public Image Chair), and Rtn Chijioke ANIAGOR (Sergeant at Arms).

The donations came from everyone present including Chileta OZODILE, a friend of Rotary who was on transit but decided to breeze in and have experience of Rotary atmosphere.
