What is Rotary? Is a question we are frequently asked and one which has as many different answers as there are people who respond.
We could tell you that we have many programmes and projects designed to educate young people, bring clean water and sanitation to people who need it, have health projetcs that range from Cataract surgery to artifical limbs.
We could tell you of the playgrounds we have built in our home town, of the public gardens we have built, of the efforts to remove invasive weed species from public parks or of the competitions we run to display the talents and skills of young people.
We could tell you of our Peace Fellows Programme in six universities around the world that helps people gain a Masters level qualification and sets them up to work in many different areas helping to bring about change and reductions in conflict.
Or we could tell you about how Rotary International are the driving force behind ridding the world of Polio, a programme that has seen cases reduce from 1000 per day in 1985 to less than 100 in 2020.
And we still would only have covered a fraction of what Rotary does.
Our members have a wide range of backgrounds in businesses, professions and public service roles. We are a group of men and women who have different personal backgrounds but one aim - to help others and do good in the world.
