International Service

Rotarians support overseas projects

International Service covers our efforts to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the world. It includes everything from emergency relief to areas hit by natural disasters to longer term efforts to develop communities' ability to sustainably help themselves.

Rotary International encourages Rotary clubs to develop projects that address priority needs identified by the communities they serve, to help people help themselves, and to ensure projects are environmentally sustainable.

Supporting Rotary run projects is the most effective way that we can provide humanitarian aid, Rotarians give their time and expertise for free with little or no overhead costs thus ensuring that more of the funds donated go to those in need.

International Service Projects support the main Rotary focus areas of: Peacekeeping and conflict prevention, Disease prevention and treatment, Water, sanitation and hygiene, Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy, Community economic development and Environment.

Please click on the focus area icons to the right where you will find a selection of Rotary run projects for consideration.
