One of Rotary’s greatest stories is its global reach for good! Sometimes its hard to see how YOU, as an individual, can change the world. Rotary helps people get involved at a global level, starting from home! Local Rotary clubs can partner with an overseas Rotary club through a global grant project in one of six areas:
 
  • Promoting Peace
  • Fighting Disease
  • Providing Clean Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
  • Saving Mothers & Children
  • Supporting Education
  • Growing Local Economies
Every 5 years, Gaylord Rotary Club does a global grant with financial funding from five District 5950 clubs and Rotary International. Through Rotary’s commitment to building a better world and fostering international relationships, the Gaylord Rotary Club has provided clean water wells to a community in Haiti, purchased washing machines for an orphanage in Brazil, acquired a mobile clinic and ambulance in Uganda and most recently, purchased and helped build 210 all-terrain wheelchairs for the disabled in Sierra Leone.
