In this area, Rotarians strive for the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
International Service Projects are designed to meet the humanitarian needs of people in many lands, with particular emphasis on the most underprivileged children and families in developing countries.
Through International Service programs, Rotarians provide millions in funds and donations-in-kind each year.
There is no one-way to carry out a International Service project. When it comes to implementing a project, creativity and imagination are the keys to success. Projects may be as diverse as assisting in a donkey-breeding program in order to provide a less expensive means of farming to helping build a medical complex that will serve more than 25,000 people or to drilling potable water wells for entire villages.
Rotary International encourages Rotary clubs to develop projects that address priority needs identified by the communities they serve, to help people help themselves, and to ensure projects are environmentally sustainable.
