  • (1888PressRelease) November 19, 2010 - This year the event is organized with the target of educating 1 million children in India.

    Round Table is an organisation of non-political and non-sectarian young men between the age group of 18 and 40. The aim of the young men is to promote service, fellowship and goodwill in National and International affairs. The unique feature of the organisation is that it always remains young, because the ‘tablers’ retire when they turn 40, giving way to younger people.

    Men’s Cook Out Nite: Cooking for Education!
    Out of 186 million children in the age group of 5-14, 100 million are not in school. Of the rest 86 million, out of every 10 children who start in grade 1, only 4 reach grade 8. Illiteracy is a self-fulfilling curse that perpetuates the change of poverty, degradation and child labour. To promote education Round Table is organizing this unique event.

They will also discuss to undertake many plans and various projects to teach and help underprivileged children of the society.

    In the “Men’s Cook Out Nite”, the ‘tablers’ who are celebrities from different walks of life will cook and interact with the youth.

    The event is aimed at developing the fellowship of young men through the medium of their business, professional occupations and community service activities. Forming a group of five, each with four tablers, will be given a specific menu who will compete with each other. The menu for the event will be provided at the venue 30 mins before the competition.

    Round Table India believes in community service through the fellowship of its members. Round Table's motto is "Adopt, Adapt, Improve". This motto was taken from a speech by the Prince of Wales, in which he said: "The young business and professional men of the country must get together round the Table, adopt methods that have proved so sound in the past, adapt them to the changing needs of the times, and wherever possible, improve them”. The vital aim of RTI is to encourage active and responsible citizenship by cultivating the highest ideals in Business, Professional and Civic Traditions. They also aim to Promote and further International Understanding, Friendship and Cooperation and the extension of the association throughout this event.
