What is Foundation?

Funds are used by Rotary Clubs for projects that specifically come within the headings:- Hunger, Health and Humanity.

The Rotary Foundation is an international trust whose trustee's are Rotarians. 

Our Foundation is 'Rotary in Action' as an international humanitarian and educational charity. 

Our purpose is to do good in the world. Our mission is to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the support of education, the improvement of health and the alleviation of poverty.

We are all aware of the Polio Plus programme and its objectives to rid  the world of Polio. Rotary International, thanks to Foundation, is one of the main sponsors of this initiative. Our contributions to Foundation are helping to finance this project. And it is going to happen!!. 

But alongside this many Clubs throughout the world are linking with others in countries where a humanitarian need is identified e.g. Need for clean water, education, teaching trades, providing tools, creating agricultural awareness
