The Rotary club is a global network of 1.2 million friends, community leaders and businesspeople who work together to affect a positive and lasting change on communities at home and abroad.
Solving real problems requires a true commitment and vision. For over 110 years, members of the Rotary Club have employed their passion, energy and intelligence to work on sustainable projects. From working towards literacy and peace, to ensuring drinking water and health in communities, it has always worked towards improving the life of communities, and has enabled them to know and work with other, high-impact altruistic organisations.
The Rotary Club works on projects that promote peace through its Rotary Foundation by creating a unique programme of international studies such as its Pro-Peace Grants, set up in the six leading world universities through a rigorous programme that gives around 50 high-achieving young students and professionals the chance to study International Conflict Resolution.
The Rotary Club believes in the role of the new generations as catalysts for peace, preventing and solving conflict in their communities and around the world.
