Growing Local Economies

Our service projects help communities develop and thrive.

We create opportunities and a chance for change.

Rotary carries out service projects that enhance economic and community development and provide opportunities for decent and productive work for people both young and old.

By focusing on economic and community development, we are able to break the cycle of poverty which cripples so many people around the world.

Sustainable projects not only create an initial impact through training and equipment provision, but allow for ongoing skills development to last for generations.

A crucial element of the work Rotary does is to strengthen the role of women and helping them become local entrepreneurs and community leaders.
