EVENTS - Fareham Rotary in Action
Rotary Club of Fareham celebrates its 70th Anniversary
Adding value to Communities
RI President Ravi has asked Rotarians to "Be a Gift to the World". Someone gave each Rotarian a great gift when they asked him or her to Join Rotary. Collectively we improve lives and enjoy ourselves at the same time. What a powerful combination that is!
Working with others we achieve more than working alone. We are forming partnerships and working relationships with other organisations and we will continue with this development.
Rotary started a drive to rid the world of Polio and we have stuck with the task through many challenges. We cannot relax until the job is complete since if we don’t, there is the chance the disease will return.
Through our own charity, The Rotary Foundation, we are able to get much more done for the money we raise for international Rotary projects aimed at promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children and growing local communities. The need for work in theses crucial areas will not diminish in the foreseeable future.

With Rotary being an International organisation we sometimes receive funds contributed by overseas Rotary Clubs and on occasions we support a humanitarian project of an overseas Club such as a hospital in an outlying location in India.
Our primary overseas focus has for many years been on ridding the World of Polio and we are almost there.
