The programmes and projects listed on this site are those being offered through the districts and their clubs.  These have been catagorised into:
  • Local Community
  • International Community
  • Youth & Young Adults
  • Social / Fellowship & Networking
but programmes / projects listed might fit within more than one catagory but are only listed once.  For example, Trees for Survival could fit both in Local Community and Youth.
A Rotarian is a member of a world-wide network and there is nothing stopping them offering to participate in any Rotary project elsewhere in the world (at the discretion of the organiser).
In addition within Rotary there are a number of Rotary Action Groups that any Rotarian, and in many cases family and friends, can participate in.  A Rotarian Action Group is an autonomous group of Rotarians, family members, program participants and alumni who are experts in a particular field, such as microcredit or water and sanitation. Group members share their expertise by collaborating with clubs and districts on service projects.
