Making Time

 

 

Even with his busy work schedule, Rehan has always gone out of his way to serve the community, be it in Topeka, or his country of birth Bangladesh.

He is a firm believer of the famous quote by Martin Luther King Jr, " What are you doing for others?"

Rotary Club Downtown Topeka

Rehan joined the Downtown Topeka Rotary Club in 2007. Initially he felt it was a good networking platform and a chance to travel to participate in the annual conventions held in different cities around the world. But it turned out to be more than that. Over the years he became more involved with the Club's community projects that took him to Panama City as well as initiate projects in Bangladesh. Currently he the Secretary  and Chairman of the Club's  International Committee.  

 

In Bangladesh his Rotary Club has donated an ambulance to the Naryanganj Diabetic Center. It has also installed twenty deep water wells in rural areas in Bangladesh, which provides clean water to thousands.  Currently the Club is in its 3rd phase of Water Well Project.

 

Recently, Rehan has been invited to join the District to bring some diversity with the Rotary Club.
