I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

I will rise to the challenge and try and keep it brief.

There are 1.2 million men and women world wide. They actively seek members and people can apply. They support charities and run projects locally and world wide.

As an example they run projects at least one club in the donor country and a club in a receiving country. The latter Rotarians are responsible for delivering the project. The whole, especially financial expenditure, is then monitored by Rotary in Chicago. The funding model has NO OVERHEADS for administration and all monies go to delivery of the project.

It flag ship programme is eradication of Polio.

The point? It brings people with ideas and vision together with others who can deliver the ideal.
