THE ROTARY FOUNDATION [Our Charity]
and the only charity delivering our vision of a better world.
The Rotary Foundation is supported solely by contributions from the public, Rotary members and friends of the Foundation.
Those contributions, gifts and donations are transformed into service projects that change the lives of thousands of people at home and across the world.
With 91% of funds spent on the programmes and projects it delivers, The Rotary Foundation, is globally recognised for its financial efficiency, accountability and transparency. Based at the Rotary Headquarters in Illinois, USA,
Our eClub of Innovation charity activity is aimed at making our commmunities, both local and international, better places to live and work.
We are a global Rotary club and our reach is therefore in places where we are needed, to help make them better places to work and live.
100% of the net money raised from these cards goes to all our charitable endeavours.
We aim to improve and expand access to lowcost and free healthcare in underdeveloped areas. Our members educate and mobilise communities to help prevent the spread of major diseases, such as polio, and sponsor training programmes for health workers.
We believe education is a right. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy. As a member you can educate and uplift students from across the globe, reduce gender disparity in education and inspire the next generation
We carry out work that enhance economic & community development and create opportunities for productive work for young and old. We help strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, through microfinance, training and equipment provision.
Through our partnerships with several leading universities, Rotary Peace Fellows develop the skills to strengthen peace efforts, train local leaders to prevent conflict, and support longterm peace building in areas affected by conflict.
We provide immunisations and antibiotics to babies, improve access to essential medical services, and support trained healthcare providers for mothers and their children. Our projects ensure sustainability by empowering the local community to take ownership of health care training programmes.
Rotarians understand that the whole world is their backyard. We can see the effects of climate change in communities they care about and we come up with projects, using our connections to change policy — and planning for the future.
Water means life. Our projects give communities the ability to develop and maintain sustainable water systems and support studies related to sanitation and hygiene. We build wells, implement rainwater harvesting and improve sanitation facilities.s.
