Aims

To motivate fellow Rotarians and involve them in international projects
To identify suitable International projects and opportunities
To encourage fellowship through joint international projects
To monitor natural and humanitarian disasters worldwide, to provide information and suggest action (as        appropriate} to the club members

There are many schemes:
Aquabox:  a robust plastic tank packed with water purification tablets, each box can purify up to 1100 litres of polluted water
Literacy Box:  a box supplying essential school items
Shelterbox:  an emergency life saving box containing a tent, bedding, tools, cooking utensils, a children's activity pack,  etc.  One box and its contents  can provide shelter for up to 10 people.
Microfinance:  giving  a hand up not a hand out 
Send a Cow:  we help Families leave poverty behind by providing livestock,  training and on-going support
Swimarathon:  a sponsored swim which is an international Rotary initiative, with organised swimming events taking place simultaneously throughout the world, to raise money for End Polio Now
These are some of our schemes, but there are many more opportunities to serve the international community in Rotary
