A staple of Rotary’s volunteering, Service Projects address challenges and produce solutions that generate a benefit to the community, be it in Central Florida or around the globe
Rotary’s Service Projects can be as simple as picking up trash in a park where your children play and can be as complex as working with other Rotary Clubs around the globe to provide clean water to people you’ll never meet.
Rotarians often find their calling by getting involved in a Rotary Club’s Service Projects. Many people don’t know their full potential until they roll up their sleeves and put effort into a Service Project that serves the good of others in need. Some projects are easy and simply take time and effort, but others require the planning, funding and the knowledge and skill Rotarians can contribute.
When Rotarians get involved in a Service Project, they can make full use of their professional experience to ensure it can be completed and that its outcome reaches those it benefits. Volunteering means to serve with your heart and mind, giving other the best of your within your power and free time to ensure our world can improve one Service Project at the time.
Here are some examples of Service Projects our Central Florida Rotary Clubs have worked on in recent years:
- Building wheelchair access ramps for handicapped residents
- Delivering dictionaries to 3rd graders in schools across Central Florida
- Establishing water wells in the Dominican Republic and Haiti
- Supporting cleft-lip surgeries in Central and South America
