This not-for-profit organization works to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace. Using Rotary Foundation grants, Rotary's 34,000 clubs across the globe develop and carry out sustainable humanitarian projects and provide scholarships and professional training opportunities.
One of its biggest initiatives aims at eradicating polio through its PolioPlus program, launched in 1985. Since then, Rotary and its partners, including the World Health Organization and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have immunized more than 2.5 billion children, reducing the incidence of polio by 99 percent and eradicating it from all but three countries.

The first Rotary District 1145 Conference was a great success and took place over the weekend of 1st - 3rd October 2015.  The first of many!

Tuesday, 23rd February, 2016, marked the 111th anniversary of Rotary International. On this day in 1905, Rotary founder Paul Harris formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.

Since then, Rotary has continued its commitment to service by providing clean water, improving maternal health, awarding scholarships, fighting diseases, and improving lives around the world.

To celebrate 111 years of Rotary, Rotarians from all over the UK climbed across the top of the 02, formerly the Millennium Dome, where the End Polio Now emblem will be raised to celebrate the incredible efforts of Rotarians across the globe in the End Polio Now campaign, which continues to be a key priority for Rotary.

Cllr Mukesh Malhotra, Rotary Club of Hounslow and Steven Kirupai, Rotary Club of East Grinstead Meridian were among those who took part.

"Around the district in the next 30 days..." lists some more exiting 1145 Club Events!
