Rotary Project Fairs are a wonderful tool to learn about ways your club or district can expand its involvement in the Rotary world. Hosted by districts, zones, or entire countries, these gatherings feature ongoing cooperative projects or those in development. Not only can we find out more about these service activities and find projects to support, but we get to experience different cultures through these events. While many are virtual, requiring no travel, District grants can fund travel to attend in person and global grants can help share in the financial cost of making the project a reality. Any club representative or Rotary member who is interested in supporting an international service project can attend a project fair.
Now, when we’re planning for next year’s projects, is a great time to look at these opportunities and get them on the calendar. Upcoming fairs in the areas south of our border are already on the books, in the Yucatan peninsula, Honduras, and Columbia.
