Variety of Rotary Service to international communities
The District International Resource Group wish you a successful and enjoyable Rotary Year, and welcome you to the Committee pages of our District Web site.
Within the current committee we have a wealth of expertise in international projects. Please contact the committee if you require advice or assistance with a project as we are a District resource and are delighted to assist. We are also pleased to come and present to your Club as a speaker on international topics , Sand Dams, Mary's Meals, Micro-Finance, DisasterAidUK, Rotary Shoebox, Jaipur Limb & Hope & Homes.
This year, we will be especially promoting DisasterAidUKI and Rotary Shoeboxes. Also following a very successful multiclub 100k mealpack to Stop Hunger Now (led by Warrington Rotary), the International committee is planning to launch a series of mealpacks. We started with a showcase event at the RotaryGBI conference in Manchester in April 2017, and then a 55k mealpack in Bolton and Wilmslow in the April 2018.
Our District Web Site, along with those of RI and RotaryGBI, provides a very valuable resource in choosing projects and taking them forward, as well as keeping us informed of what Rotary is doing in World Community Service, of which our own local club projects are an integral part, no matter how large or small.
Many International projects are done in conjunction the Rotary Foundation, Rotary's own charity which often will provide matching funding to enable larger projects to be undertaken across the world.Disaster Aid UK & Ireland
