Our health is everything. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care. We believe good health care is everyone’s right.

The Rotary Foundation is changing the world by providing grants for projects and activities around the globe and in your own backyard.

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.

In the month of October, Rotary will celebrate the Area of Focus "Economic and Community Development". Rotary members train people to become resources for their community, offering networking activities, advice on new business development, and mathematics and financial management training.

Rotary members make amazing things happen, like:

 
The Rotary Club of New Kingston partnered with the Rotaract Club of New Kingston and the Interact Club of St. Georges College in making it a true Rotary family affair as they embarked in planting thirteen trees in accordance with the Rotary International President's mandate of planting 1.2 million trees.
 
This hands on project afforded the family the opportunity to bond and fellowship as they executed the project. The Principal of St. Georges College was elated to host the Rotary Club and looks forward to more joint ventures in the future.
 
Special thanks to the Rotaractors and Interactors who participated and make the project a success. The club also donated white boards to the school.

The Rotaract Club of New Kingston was chartered in 2004 and sponsored by the Rotary Club of New Kingston. They meet 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month at the Liguanea Club at 7pm.
 
On September 7, 2017 President Bill Aiken was in attendance to inducted 4 new Rotaractors.
 
Join us in welcoming the world's newest Rotaractors!!!
 
 
Members of the Rotary Club of New Kingston making a donation to the New Kingston Police Post
 
During the last Rotary year, the Rotary Club of New Kingston started a project with the New Kingston Police post where an assessment was done on the needs of the unit.
 
On September 1, 2017, the club donated two refurbished computers which were acquired from Guardian Life Jamaica Limited. A much needed water dispenser was also donated to the post, as the high volume of traffic handled each day ranks them as one of the busiest on the island.
 
The scores of civilians who visit the post each week and the officers who service them can be kept hydrated as reports are received and processed.
 

In our Rotary calendar the month of September is Basic Education and Literacy. The Rotary Foundation supports education through scholarships, donations, and service projects around the world. 

Rotary members make amazing things happen, like:

August is Membership Month, which means it’s time to celebrate your Rotary club, your members, and the good you do in your community and around the world.
 
There are many ways to join in the celebration, but here are a few activities to get you started:
 
The staff of the Harrison Home for The Aged in Kingston were all smiles as Manager Blondell Caines (third left) accepted a sphygmomanometer from Dr William Aiken (third right), president of the Rotary Club Of New Kingston. The club also donated several batches of disposable supplies to assist with the day-to-day care of the elderly residents of the home.
 
The Rotary Club of New Kingston welcomes President William Aiken who will lead the club during 2017/18.  He reminds us that RI's strategic priorities and the club's are closely interwoven. The overriding strategic priorities of the incoming RCNK 2017-2018 administration are 1) To increase the visibility of the RCNK in the New Kingston area and beyond 2) To improve the level of fun, fellowship and friendship among members 3) To target all 6 areas of focus in our projects.
 
 
The Rotary of New Kingston donated chairs to the New Kingston Police Post on June 2, 2017.
President Rose-Marie Gibbs has challenged the club to be more visible in the New Kingston Area and this project is the beginning of a series of visits to the New Kingston Police Post. President Elect William Aiken has also pledged that the relationship will continue throughout his presidential year. A needs assessment will be done and the club will see how best it can engage it's members as well as Corporate New Kingston to join forces in assisting the Post.
 
Rotary Fellowships are independent, social groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world.
 
How do I join a fellowship?
Fellowships are open to Rotarians, family members, and program participants and alumni. You can contact a fellowship directly by using the information listed in the Rotary Fellowships directory. Or search our discussion groups to find Rotary and Rotaract members with similar interests.
 
How do I form a fellowship?
Start by finding others who share you interest.
 
Join a discussion group or start a new one. It's a great way to share your interest with other members.
Use Rotary’s presence on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to promote your idea.
Ask your district Rotary Fellowships chair for assistance. Reach out to district Rotary Fellowships chairs in other countries to build membership by emailing us.
Be sure you meet the criteria for a fellowship and apply for official recognition.

Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.

We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented. Rotary provides education, immunizations, birth kits, and mobile health clinics.

Women are taught how to prevent mother-to-infant HIV transmission, how to breast-feed, and how to protect themselves and their children from disease. The Rotary Foundation reaches mothers and children in need by giving communities the help and training they need to take control of their own maternal and infant health care.

Clean water and sanitation is a human right. When people, especially children, have access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, they lead healthier and more successful lives.

We don’t just build wells and walk away. Rotary members integrate water, sanitation, and hygiene into education projects. When children learn about disease transmission and practice good hygiene, they miss less school. And they can take those lessons home to their families, expanding our impact. 

 

Building sustainable peace projects requires holistic thinking and a community-driven approach.  Rotarians are uniquely positioned to foster healthy, resilient and more peaceful communities.

Violent conflict can devastate a country’s society, economy and political governance. Coordinating projects that prevent or resolve conflict requires a tailored, sensitive approach. Rotarians can play a vital role in the peace building process by galvanizing members of their communities to identify and address the underlying causes of conflict.
