Community Service Projects

Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation have ad­opted six areas of focus as organizational priorities and many of the community service projects fall in one of these categories:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development

Why do clubs coordinate community service projects? Ultimately, it’s to improve life in the community.

Effective service projects do more than just offer a quick fix for problems. The most effective service projects:

  • Respond to real issues
  • Improve community members’ lives
  • Incorporate the abilities of those who are served
  • Recognize the contributions of all participants as important and necessary
  • Are based on a realistic assessment of available resources
  • Aim for specific goals and objectives with measurable results
  • Build effective networks
  • Empower people and communities
