Charity Work Overseas 

There have been four major Projects

  • Support for the Wulugu project providing education to combat poverty in northern Ghana
  • Teaching English using specialist computer education programmes in India
  • Providing equipment for a charity in the Congo
  • Providing relief to communities suffering through the Nepal Earthquakes

Service Through Rotary Foundation

Rotary Foundation provides a means for the 1.3 million Rotarians world wide to work together on projects of International importance
  • Thanks for Life:  Polio Eradication.     Twenty years ago Polio was still endemic in many countries in Europe as well as in most other countries worldwide.   Thanks to Rotary,  the number of countries is now down to 4 with just around 1000 cases a year.    There is a major drive at present to finally eradicate Polio from the face of the earth.    

  • Group Study Exchange.    To promote frienship and understanding,  groups of 4 non-Rotarians led by a Rotarian Leader participate in a 4 week exchange with a similar group from a different part of the world.    This is done on a District basis (the Rotary Club of Wymondham is in District 1080).    Recent exchanges have been with Argentina, Turkey, Australia, Philipines, India, and  Illinois.

  • Ambassadorial Scholars.   Rotary International supports students from one District to study in a District in another country.
