International Service: Collaboration & Empowerment 

The International Service Committee endeavours to uplift the lives of those in need, by bringing:

  • education
  • health and sanitation
  • alleviation of poverty
  • small business development
  • food security
to six countries on three continents (Africa - Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda; Asia - Nepal; South America - Brazil).
Working in collaboration with Rotary Clubs worldwide, we form lasting friendly relations. Seeing a project’s successful results or becoming self-sustainable is highly satisfactory.
As there is an unending demand for help, budget restrictions can be a source of frustration. This is where the financial partnership and collaboration with other Canadian and foreign clubs comes in. Our aim is to access District Grants and RI Foundation Global Grants in the near future.
Please see the International Projects area for individual project details.
