Although polio has not been seen in Great Britain and Ireland for many years, it is vital that we continue our efforts to eliminate the disease worldwide in order that it can never return. Rotary clubs in Great Britain and Ireland have so far donated over £20 million (€24 million) to End Polio Now.
The Rotary Foundation is Rotary’s own and only charity and in 2016/17 will be celebrating its centennial anniversary. We tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities.
We direct our efforts in six areas to enhance our local and global impact. Our most successful and sustainable projects and activities tend to fall within the following areas:
Providing clean water
Saving mothers and children
Growing local economies
