Our members and our foundation work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.
We provide training and access to well-paying jobs and financial management institutions. We create opportunities to help individuals and communities thrive financially and socially. For example, Rotary International and Heifer International are teaching farmers to extend their growing season and help residents eat healthier, local food.
Together with partnering financial organizations Rotary Clubs assist local entrepreneurs to obtain and use microloans to become street vendors, rickshaw drivers, weavers, and tailors.
