What We Do
Supporting Women and Children
We extend our focus in providing quality health care, education, sanitation, and feasible economic opportunities so that women and children can live healthy and productive lives. Our decision to provide assistance is premised on the fact that 46% of women worldwide are suffering from all sorts of violence. With this desperate need for help, we the members of Rotary club in Birtley are working tirelessly to curtail this trend and protect victims across several vulnerable societies across the world.
Supporting Quality Education
Our vision is to strengthen the capacity to acquire quality education and entrench literacy among young people of school age, lessen gender inequality in education, and enhance adult literacy.
One of our strategies in achieving this aim is by focusing on training and mentoring teachers in our community schools.
We are deeply committed to fighting diseases such as measles, polio, and other communicable diseases, as well as enhancing easy access to quality health care to people in developing communities scattered across the world.
Our team of medical volunteers is professionally trained and are proudly kitted with our vests, going into every area in the community to administer medical treatment to people suffering some illness.
Providing Portable Water
As part of our commitment to promote a healthy living, we partner with relevant humanitarian bodies to provide portable water for our local community and others at large.
