The Rotary Foundation and International Committee

Club members annually support Rotary’s own charity, The Rotary Foundation.  This is consistently rated to be among the most cost-efficient charities in the world.  It supports the needs of communities across the globe, gives grants to Clubs to carry out humanitarian work and supports young people through Peace Scholarships.

The Club also supports a range of projects locally and overseas.  We built a nursery and then a community vocational centre in an impoverished part of Sri Lanka.  We now support 20 children with scholarships to enable them to benefit from an education as well as continuing to purchase learning and teaching materials.  We annually support Rotary’s commitment to End Polio in the world – something we are close to achieving.  We also aid Shelter Box to be able to help people who suffer from natural or man-made disasters.  This year we began funding Lend with Care projects which supports entrepreneurs in developing nations through start-up funds to create mini-businesses.

The Club has a proud record of making a real difference in peoples’ lives near and far.
