As a Rotary Club and Tanzanians nationals, we are deeply rooted in our communities. This is where we work, we raise our children, meet our friends and also enjoy our lives. We believe that in order to make a difference in the lives of others, the community is the first address to get active. And what kind of difference we make here, eventually defines our legitimacy as Rotarians. This is the reason, the Rotary Club of Dar es Salaam Oyster Bay has started the Rotary Community Corps in 2017.  
What is a Rotary Community Corps?
A Rotary Community Corps (RCC) is a team of non-Rotarian men and women who are committed to their community’s long-term development and self-sufficiency. An RCC is sponsored by a Rotary club and, like Rotaract and Interact clubs, is one of Rotary’s partners in service. The main principle of the program is to enable RCC members to personally address and solve problems in the area where they work or live.
How does it affect the community?
RCC is part of the community. It therefore helps to mobilize the community and bring people together in common case. They ensure that local needs are met. And most significantly, a Rotary Community Corps has a vested interest in its own success. Their members have to live with the results of their work; their commitments are the basis for sustainability.
What has Rotary Oyster Bay done so far?
In understanding the importance of involving the community in our active projects, we are working on forming RCCs in the areas of our annual Medical Camps in Kerege and Msasani. Organizing events like this where a thousand people are provided with medical care are not thinkable without the support and literal help of the people living in the villages. Therefore, we have had several meetings with the respective communities with the objective of understanding their individual needs and challenges. We also made sure our projects were well received and we created awareness of the community potential (manpower and different qualities) they had. Lastly, we wanted to show that our Club is ready to partner with them in their service projects. We are very much looking forward of getting the first RCC to start soon.
