WELCOME TO THE INTERNATIONAL SERVICE COMMITTEE

Every time a Rotary club in one country helps a Rotary club in another to complete a local project, it's an example of International Service.

 
 PURPOSE: To stimulate and assist clubs or groups of clubs to undertake International Service to improve lives and meet human needs, and thus advance world understanding, good will and peace.
 
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
Our International Service Committee (ISC) offers all Rotarians  an opportunity for international fellowship through humanitarianism.  As we embrace these opportunities, we can also gain professional development and join networks of other Districts  memberships supporting our programs beyond  local borders.
 
With the call from Rotary International to be an inspiration- to open up new vistas globally where we can help those in need- we have the ability to inspire and focus a new , younger generation of Rotarians and Rotaractors. From our global quest to eradicate polio, to last years planting of trees or our District’s quest to address malnutrition in children under the age of 5 in Pakistan, planting breadfruit trees in Jamaica, digging water wells in Haiti, the Gift of Life for children around the world, programs in Ethiopia, Peru,Tanzania,Uganda, South Africa,Niger,Kenya and beyond, our committee continues to grow and address global issues.
 
Rotary International encourages Rotary clubs to develop projects that address priority needs identified by the communities they serve, to help people help themselves, and to ensure projects are environmentally sustainable. Let us expand  and encourage all clubs in District 7090 to use their imagination,  to encourage the younger generations  and through our collective  help- hopefully encourage peace and well being  around the globe.
