Our work overseas

Our clubs in Great Britain and Ireland are able to work directly with clubs in disaster hit areas across the world to assess what aid is needed and we can be sure that money raised goes directly to those in need. Projects range from providing water and sanitation, disease prevention, literacy projects, education, building schools, hospitals, water wells and growing local economies through sustainable development.

When disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons or floods occur around the world, we are quick to respond through our support for survival kits such as ShelterBox, AquaBox and Water Survival Box, which provide the basic essentials required in an emergency situation.

Rotarians from the medical professions use their expertise to run overseas clinics. These include providing much needed hearing aids, glasses and prosthetic limbs to those in areas of the world where these items are in short supply.

In Rotary we also have our unique peace programme. We select some of the world’s most dedicated and brightest professionals to receive fully funded fellowships to study at our Rotary Peace Centers. In just over a decade, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 900 fellows globally for careers in peace building. Many of them go on to serve as leaders in national governments, NGOs, the military, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and World Bank.

“You can walk into any club anywhere in the world and be made welcome. We are an international family of people whose common goal is to help others.”
