Home Page Stories
On September 4, 2021, the Rotary Club of Tortola completed its first youth service project at the St. George's Primary School.  Members of the club found an innovative way for students to learn and enhance their mathematics skills. This was done by turning their old stairway into multiplication stairs.
 
School resumes on September 6th 2021. As students enter their school campus this new stairway will help students visualize and be a constant reminder towards advancing their mathematics knowledge as they walk around campus. 
 
 
August is the time of the year when we celebrate the heart of the club, its membership. Being in Rotary you learn about one another and develop deep connections with each other. We learn about people skillsets, cultural differences and their passion for service.

At this moment, there are over 1.2 million Rotarians in over 35,000 countries worldwide. Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta’s call for action is “Each One Bring One”, his goal for this Rotary Year is to increase the membership to 1.3 million by June 2022.

During the month, the Rotary Club Of Tortola took a fun initiative in highlighting and remembering its dynamic members by sharing their Rotary story. I am a Proud Rotarian profile was created to highlight the uniqueness of each member. In addition to this, the profiles aim to change the mindsets of others within the community, inspiring them to join the club and commit to “Serve to Change Lives”. (visit the national tab for all proud Rotarian profiles)
 
During the month, the club acknowledged its rich history, important achievements and membership succession that transcended through generations. Our Together is better: Family within Rotary highlights those moments.
 
EARTHQUAKE IMPACTS HAITI - AUGUST 2021.
 
PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ROTARY HELP HAITI RECOVER?
 
BVI Rotary Family has once again come together in organizing relief and recovery assistance, this time to the persons impacted by the devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti.  As an initial response, the BVI Rotary Clubs has a local Bank account to support this initiative.  Experts both in Haiti and in Disaster response report that cash is the most effective and efficient way to aid those who are in need immediately. Understandably, those in Haiti need our help and as such, we are asking for the public to open their hearts once again and assist in this secure way.  Please donate if you can.
