Rotary in The South West Peninsula: Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly 

Welcome to the website of Rotary International District 1175. Rotarians in the District actively embrace and exemplify the two main themes of Rotary International, namely “Service above Self” and “We’re for Communities”, and are active in their local communities and in overseas projects, providing support, assistance, advice, and guidance to the clubs and communities both in actively practical and financial terms. Many of these various projects are featured elsewhere in this website whilst others are undertaken without fuss or publicity by the individual clubs.

“Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

Rotary International welcomes as members of its various clubs any person of good standing regardless of gender, ethnicity, beliefs or politics. With its range of cultures and environments there is a choice of clubs within the District to suit most people within easy travelling distance of where they live. Accessing the various club websites will give you a flavour of what there is on offer and contact with the individual clubs is easy and without any obligation to commit at this stage. Should you need help in finding a suitable club then email join@rotarysw.info and our Chair of Membership will be pleased to help you.

Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have announced a further commitment of up to $450 million to support the eradication of polio.

The paralysing, life-altering scourge is on the verge of becoming the second human disease ever to be eradicated.

Rotary committed to raise $50 million per year over the next three years, with every dollar to be matched with two additional dollars from the Gates Foundation.

This expanded agreement will translate into $450 million for polio eradication activities, including immunisation and surveillance over the next three years.

This critical funding helps ensure countries around the world remain polio-free and that polio is ended in the remaining three endemic countries: Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. In 2016, fewer children were paralysed by polio than ever before, thanks to the dedication of Rotary members and their partners.

In a partnership spanning a decade, Rotary and the Gates Foundation, along with the other Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners, have led the effort to end polio worldwide.

Rotary, including matching funds from the Gates Foundation, has donated more than $1.6 billion to polio eradication.

“The vision of eradicating polio began with Rotary, and its support of that effort has been unwavering for more than 35 years,” said Gates. “Rotary’s commitment to raise $150 million over the next three years to end polio forever is a testament to the compassion, generosity, and kindness of more than a million Rotarians around the world.”
