This week's meeting material

The Rotary Foundation

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Rotary Foundation helps fund our humanitarian activities, from local service projects to global initiatives. Your club or district can apply for grants from the Foundation to invest in projects and provide scholarships. The Foundation also leads the charge on worldwide Rotary campaigns such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Rotarians and friends of Rotary support the Foundation’s work through voluntary contributions.

Visit District 9820 Rotary Foundation page for more information. The information and application form can be found in the download section on the left hand side of the page


Rotary Club Project Spotlight - Rotary Club of Singapore

Established in 1930 the Rotary Club of Singapore was originally part of the Rotary district which covered seven countries: Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Brunei. After the Vietnam War, the District was narrowed down to Thailand, Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore.  Subsequently, Thailand became a new District, and later, our current District 3310 was formed with Singapore, Johore, Malacca, Sabah, Sarawak, Labuan, and Brunei. Currently, the Rotary Club of Singapore has about 140 members. 

Please look through their website Rotary Club of Singapore and at the great work that they do in the region
