“Service Above Self”
The Rotary Club of Beirut Cosmopolitan (RCBC), sponsored by Rotary Club de Beyrouth, received its charter from The Rotary Foundation International on June 21, 1995. RCBC covers the Greater Beirut area. As a cosmopolitan club, RCBC adopted English as its official language in order to accommodate non-Arabic speaking expatriates and guests.
With 25 charter members at inception, RCBC now has some 44 active men and women dedicat- ed to “Service above Self” and community support. Arising from the deep concern of its members since inception about the traumatic effects of a 15-year civil war on the Lebanese population, RCBC service projects have been dedicated to community support, as well as displaced people and refugees in fields such as child education, elderly support, and donations to reduce the finan- cial burden of medical treatment. RCBC continues to contribute to improving the quality of life of the Lebanese population through vocational service projects aimed at increasing national wealth through higher productivity.
The Club’s contribution to the Community exceeded USD 5 Mio in global grants and service projects.
For the Rotary Year 2019-2020, between July 2019 and June 2020, the value of the delivered global grant projects was USD 328,000. The projects submitted to the Rotary Foundation are valued at USD 314,000. The value of the projects in the pipeline is USD 225,000. The value of Service Projects is USD 15,000. The total value of the projects for the Rotary Year 2019-2020 is around USD 900,000 covering multiple areas of focus.
