International Links

The Rotary Club of Taunton is proud to support a number of international activities and links with Clubs worldwide.

One of the key objectives of the Rotary movement is the "advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace... in the ideal of service".

 

Our activities include charitable donations to the international Rotary charity for the eradication of polio across the world, support for a local Rotary charity to provide disaster hit communities with Water Survival equipment and our own Clubs sponsorship of educational opportunities in Zambia and Himalaya.

 

The Club also fosters international understanding and fellowship in supporting and participating in international exchanges in the United States and France. We also host international visitors from Rotary Clubs around the world.

 

This rich array of Club activities is a tribute and testament to our commitment to reaching out to communities beyond our own. Read about our projects and links.
