RCPI has a number of charitable projects active at any one time. If you would like to participate in a fundraising activity please contact us at projects@rcpi.club.
 
The most significant projects are listed below:
 
 
 
BLUE MAMMOTH 2
 
Modry Klic o.p.s. (“The Blue Key”) is a non-profit, non-governmental institution located in Prague 4. Since 1991, it provides social and specialized therapy and school services to mentally and physically disabled clients. Today, MK counts a community of 115 clients, aged from 3 to 70 years old.
 
About 75% of the day-to-day clients need special transportation from and back home because of the complexity of their handicaps. For these clients, it is the only possibility to reach Modry Klic every day, while they can still live at home within their family environment.
 
In 2009, Rotary Club Prague International purchased a minibus for MODRY KLIC with an electric lifting rear platform for wheelchairs. This success was made possible thanks to the generous support of individual Rotary Clubs worldwide, the Rotary Foundation, corporate sponsors and private donors. This blue bus received a nick name: the BLUE MAMMOTH, and has provided invaluable help to the clients and their families ever since.
 
With 540,000 km at the beginning of January 2024, this minibus is at the very end of its life span. Maintenance costs are skyrocketing and urgent replacement is needed. Total estimated cost: 120,000 euros.
 
RCPI will hold a Charity Gala Evening in favor of Modrý Klíč o.p.s. on Saturday, 9 November 2024 at the superb 5-star hotel NH Collection Prague CARLO IV, Senovážné náměstí, 13 (Prague 1).
 

 
 
Ukraine Crisis Relief 
 
In March 2022, right after the Russian military invasion to Ukraine, we have received a first donation of CZK 300,000 to support the war refugees that started fleeing from Ukraine. A discussion about how we as a Rotary Club can help started, more donations came, and in April we were able to rent the first house for 12 refugees. In the course of the year, further accommodation was added and, in the meantime, we have been able to accommodate more than 30 people.
Some refugees have gone back to Ukraine and new have arrived. Besides the accommodation, we also provide basic needs such as food, clothes, school items, including computers, and toys. We have many members who actively support the project, be it with monetary donations, donations in kind or with active help such as e.g. deliveries, purchases or administrative work.  
 
Date: From March 2022 until now
 

 
 
End Polio Now
 
In 1985, with the launch of its flagship PolioPlus program, Rotary became the visionary organization to take on the ambitious goal to end polio worldwide. At that time, polio crippled more than 350,000 children per year in 125 countries. Over the next 35 years, we have mobilized other partners, governments, and communities to immunize the world’s children against polio. We’ve kept our promise to work toward eradicating this disease, and the leadership, commitment, and generosity of Rotary members has brought the world 99.9 percent of the way there.
RCPI contributes regularly to End Polio Now through meeting collections, Vesela Koruna.
 
Date: On-going
 
 

 
 
Cycling for Trees 2024
 

RCPI members are committed to service so naturally that they found new ways to serve through Fellowships. Many fellowships take on service projects leveraging their networks and resources. And so did the group of RCPI developing a charity programme Cycling for Trees - turning their miles into Czech crowns and also seeking sponsors from the club who are not pedaling to support their activity. The finances raised support environmental projects in a form planting trees alongside cycling alleys in cooperation with Nadace Partnerstvi (https://www.nadacepartnerstvi.cz/Co-delame/Projekty/Sazime-budoucnost). 

In 2021, we raised CZK 100,000 to plant an alley near Příbram. In 2022, we raised 120,000 CZK for the alley in Račiněves (Říp area) to commemorate Sr Nicholas Winton.

Date: Annually; April through October
Registration: open

Besides direct services for clients, all facilities offer professional consultations and internships for experts and students.
