World Community/Internat'l Service

Rotary Club of Seaburn works with communities overseas, mostly through The Rotary Foundation.

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

We work particularly with Lynne Symonds and the Wulugu Project in northern Ghana, which is involved in the education of children, providing schools and equipment as well as accommodation for teachers.
