Club History

After the weekly meeting of Rotary South West, President Dr.Shankarnarayan, Vice Chancellor of Bangalore University, Dr.Sunderarajan ex- UNESCO, chairman Vijaya Educational Institutions, Mr.Srinivasan, industrialist and educationist, S Vishwanath, past presidents of South West and V K Parthasarathy, sec. of Rotary South West met for fellowship.

During the discussion it was felt that each Rotary club should concentrate on serving the community in and around it and should have a strong presence in its own community. All of them belonged to JP Nagar. So a thought crossed their minds.” Why not a rotary Club at JP Nagar”?

The founding fathers were clear in their minds about the Panchasheela which should be the basis for all activities of our club. They are :-

  • The spirit and ethical values of Rotary should be our ideal
  • The 4-way test should be our yard stick
  • The motto SERVICE ABOVE SELF should be our Beacon Light
  • Having true Rotarians and not just members, should be our bench mark
  • Thinking globally and acting locally should be our routine

In the last 25 years our club has achieved a lot due to this commitment of our Rotarians. Within a decade our club sponsored Rotary Metro, Rotary Kengeri Upanagara, Rotary Southeast. Before reaching our teens, Rotary J.P.Nagar was a proud mother. We fulfilled one of the most important ideal of Rotary – “EXTENSION”.

The club has also become synonymous by implementing many community based projects on a regular basis. Some of them include :

Drinking Water Project

We adopted a village, Sampigehalli, constructed an over head tank and a bore well. Pipes were laid to each street in the village and taps were provided in each street. 6000 villagers were benefitted.

Under R I Matching Grant the club has taken up a mega project by providing drinking water for more than 10,000/- residents at Kothanur Dinne, 9th phase, JP Nagar.

A water storage tank project for the benefit of the residents of Madhugiri has been implemented jointly with Rotary Club of Madhugiri.

A water purifying filter has been provided for overhead tanks at Jade village, in Shimoga District which serves the villagers with pure drinking water.

Comfort Station Projects

We adopted Sarakki Govt School in 1991 and provided two comfort stations helping 800 boys and girls.

At Sarakki Govt High School we provided comfort stations exclusively for the staff of the school.

At Kalkunte village, Bangalore Rural we provided a comfort station for the girl students of Sri Ranganatha Rural High School

At Geeta Public School, Jayanagar, we provided 3 comfort stations exclusively for slum students.

At Throlakki village , Malur Taluk we provided three comfort stations each to two Govt schools.

Health Care

Our Flagship Project , is the ROTARY LALITAMMA HOSPITAL – Which is also our Rotary centenary project. We started a hospital at Agara Village. The hospital is catering to 19 villages in and around Agara, comprising 10,000 villagers. The Club also provided an Ambulance to the hospital. The Eye care Hospital at Agara Village is the Silver Jubilee project of our Club, The total cost of this project was 26 lakhs.

Apart from these major projects, the Club also recently provided an Ambulance to the CSI hospital and Bangalore Institute of Oncology.

Keeping in mind the current health trends and needs of the community, we also established a Rotary Diabetes Diagnostic Center at Jnana Sanjivini Hospital, 2nd phase, JP Nagar, which is also a RI Matching Grant Project.

Last but definitely not the least, we have actively involved in Polio Eradication program which was a landmark International program and our efforts have contributed towards making India a polio free country.

Vocational Training Projects

A vocational Training Center has been setup at Kothannur Dinne, JP Nagar to impart computer and tailoring skills for economically backward women. This project is paving the way for many women to be empowered financially.

Literacy Projects

At Rani Sarla Devi School we have set up a Computer lab. We have adopted Govt. High school Sarakki, and provided Computers, Dictionaries, School Benches, Note books, Lockers and other equipment. We have also planted trees within the campus.

Our club always remains busy with many ongoing projects year round, such as organizing RYLA’s, conducting Blood Donation Camps, Medical Checkup camps, Dental Checkup camps, contributing to old age homes, orphanages, and the physically challenged. The club has not stopped its journey of serving the community and has lined up many more projects for the future.

The Club never lags behind in hosting several district events such as Dist. Assembly, ICGF’s , PET’s, and also in taking active part in District Conferences year after year and has done a commendable job.
