Sixty million people are displaced by armed conflict or persecution, and 90 percent of armed-conflict casualties are civilians, half of them children. Through service projects, fellowships, and other Rotary-sponsored campaigns, members train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict, and aid refugees who have fled dangerous areas. Members also pursue projects to address the underlying structural causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

“Just as Rotary itself can never keep its place unless it is constantly growing, so each individual Rotary club cannot afford to stand still while the stream of life moves onward.”— EverForward!, THE ROTARIAN, February 1941
Rotary is a worldwide organisation of business, professional and community leaders. Clubs are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Richly rewarding, the Rotary Club of Phillip Island and San Remo gives you the opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ and to have a positive impact in our community and internationally.
A highly active and prosperous Club, we raise money and provide support for many local, national and international projects that seek to improve the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. We work within the Phillip Island and San Remo communities, alongside other charitable organisations, schools, individuals and businesses to make a difference in the world.
We are an active Club within the wider Rotary network and we are proud of the work we do. You can find out more about or Club and projects by clicking on the images below. You are welcome to attend any of our Monday meetings and we delight in growing our membership so if you want to make a difference in the lives of others, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
