Community Projects

 
For decades, Rotary has been something of a “quiet achiever”, working painstakingly behind the scenes to get some of New Zealand’s most iconic charities off the ground.
 
With the support of clubs throughout New Zealand, over the decades, Rotary has helped launch organisations ranging from Plunket, Health Camps and the first Karitane Hospital to Outward Bound, Youth Exchanges and a programme to combat cyber-bullying.
 
Today, we continue to support numerous Community Projects, enriching thousands of Kiwi lives every year.
