For a group of about 500 Victoria-area business, professional and community leaders from Sidney to Sooke, that’s a monumental feat worthy of celebration!

GO INTERNATIONAL WITH ROTARY

The Rotary Clubs of Greater Victoria support causes around the world including life-saving and empowerment projects. The work of Rotary begins in the community, and every community has its own unique needs and concerns. While we serve in countless ways, we’ve focused our efforts in six key areas to maximize our impact. These areas encompass some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian needs, and we have a proven record of success in addressing them:

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