What We Do For Our World
Rotary partners with ShelterBox USA to help devastated communities. ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and tools to displaced families around the world. ShelterBox is always on the ground, working to help the most vulnerable, no matter how remote. It wants to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. It's helping in Ukraine, Syria, the Philippines, Haiti, Yemen, and more. “The partnership is absolutely fundamental to what we do,” Chris Warham , former chief executive said. “Ninety percent of our deployments involve working with local Rotarians. In almost every case, our first call is to the local Rotary club to see how they can help us as the teams start to deploy."
Mission Statement: FOWAC exists to improve the quality of life for women and girls affected by conflicts in Northern Uganda.
FOWAC is a woman run non-profit NGO founded in 2007 after the conflict (civil war) with LRA (Joseph Kony) subsided in Northern Uganda. FOWAC plays a pivotal role in reintegrating returnee mothers with their families and facilitating dialogue that encourages reconciliation between the parties.
Northern Uganda is home to an overwhelming number of these conflict-affected young women and youth who need support for basic skills training and economic opportunities in order to become self-sustaining members of the community
SoloGrid has formed a partnership with FOWAC and Rotary clubs in the US and Uganda to create self-sustaining community centers by providing renewable energy that enables community based economic opportunities and extended education opportunities.
Fight to End Polio

Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.
