Community Service “the heartbeat of Rotary”, covers projects and activities that individual Clubs undertake to improve life in their communities through Rotary’s Third Avenue of Service. Projects are as varied as the Clubs that carry them out, but all address the needs of their own community.
Clubs have the central role in the determination, funding and execution of Community Service programs and projects. Effective Community Service projects:
  • Are relevant to the community
  • Anchor a Club to its community
  • Identify and understand the key issues
  • Involve other organisations and stakeholders for best outcomes
  • Provide opportunities for promotion of Rotary and membership recruitment. The Community Avenue of Service for District 9800 offers a range of District Endorsed, Managed and Supported Programs, each led by experienced program representatives who are willing to assist Clubs.
