Rotary: ROCA's Cervical Cancer Awareness & Screening

I have been moonlighting as the online engagement lead for the Cervical Cancer Awareness and Screening campaign drive by the Rotaract Club of Adentan. The main aim of the drive is to get as many young women (usually in early 20 somethings to 45, who are sexually active) screened and to create general awareness about cervical cancer.

An innovative idea we had was to get as many Rotary & Rotaract members as engaged fund-raisers for the cause so they update their Facebook & Whatsapp profiles accordingly. For each target amount of money raised,  each participant becomes a Captain, Champion or Ambassador. In the first month we've been able to  6,500 + Cedis from this campaign. It is truly amazing what innovation coupled with a good cause can achieve.
