What are Rotary projects?
Rotary clubs participate in a broad range of humanitarian, intercultural and educational activities designed to improve the human condition.
Members of the Rotary Club of Nairobi – just like other Rotarians the world over – conduct projects to address today’s challenges including illiteracy, healthcare, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, youth development, job training and environmental concerns.
Rotary is a spearheading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, along with the World Health Organization,UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
