Supporting the environment becomes a new area of focus

Eco

 

The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: supporting the environment.

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

Supporting the environment becomes Rotary's seventh area of focus, which are categories of service activities supported by global grants. It joins peacebuilding and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and community economic development.

Grant applications for projects will be accepted beginning on 1 July 2021. Gifts and commitments from Rotarians and others will be sought to provide global grant support for the new area of focus.

    koma 03  For me, Rotary is a willingness to give themselves, their time, effort, and money to serve the people, for the sake of hope in the eyes of the victims, the smile of a sick child, improvement the lives of people around you. This, together with Rotary international fellowship, allows you to do the impossible and fills your life with special meaning.  koma 07

    koma 03  When joining Rotary, you think it will be the social component of your life, besides family, work, hobbies, etc. But over time you begin realize that Rotary is a way of life in which all your life choices are made according to the Four Way Test. Four simple questions...but how they change your life!  koma 07
