As well as the ambition to eradicate Polio, the Foundation at the heart of Rotary International, supports many local and cross border community and humanitarian projects, by providing grants to match funds raise by local clubs. Devlopment is also supported by providing grants for internaional study exchanges and grants for research.
A major and fascinating aspect to the worldwide nature of Rotary is that any member is welcome as a visitor at any other club in the world. On your travels you can seek out a Rotary club to really make friends with the locals. We have two members who almost have a second club in Sydney, Australia! We also get some interesting visitors at MKGU.
There are no barriers based on gender, race or religion. Just warm firendly people trying to do some good in the world.
