International Service

To support communities, to alleviate hunger, to improve education, to respond to disasters world-wide and to help people help themselves.

Helping Around The World

Rotary, as an international organisation, is committed to working in partnership across national, racial and religious divides to support those in need everywhere.

Some of the international projects we have been involved with include:


  • Support for Kirume School in Kenya 
  • Street collections and other fund raising for Shelterbox - a Rotary initiative
  • Polio eradication - in partnership with the World Health Organisation and the Gates Foundation
  • Practical Action - an organisation that seeks to support community development in very practical and locally sustainable ways

We wish to support projects that help those around the world less fortunate than ourselves. If you would like to tell us about a project, please use the contact link below.
