Our Projects

Rotary, to borrow from the pages of Rotary International, is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad. We, as a very small wheel in this network, do our best to do our share to affect positive and lasting change locally and globally.

On the pages in this section you will find information on current and past projects that we have been involved in as a club.

Of course one major requirement to run successful projects is fund-raising. To do so – and to help you to help us do so – we have founded a charitable foundation:

Stichting Community Service Rotary Club Utrecht International
IBAN: NL51 ABNA 0423 5991 27

The Stichting is registered in the Netherlands as an Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling (ANBI)
RSIN/fiscaal nummer: 8157 93 170.
KVK number: 302121183
Contact address: A. G. Hearn, Huib van der Vechtlaan 5, 3981 WB Bunnik

NL Doet is the name of the annual volunteer day in the Netherlands. This day is organised nationally every year by the Oranje Fonds together with thousands of organisations across the country; the largest volunteer action in the Netherlands. NLdoet puts volunteering in the spotlight and invites everyone to roll up their sleeves for a day.

Nine RCUI members and three of their children braved typical Dutch weather (cold, rain and strong winds) to join the other volunteers at Maximapark Utrecht. Gardening was the order of the day; a great many unwanted weeds were removed from the fence line around the dog exercise and swimming area, enabling the young shrubs to flourish.

Hot drinks were delivered despite the winds to the workers! And afterwards hot soup and sandwiches were gratefully received at the office of the Máximapark foundation, followed up with chocolate brownie.

It is almost one year since the start of our Global Grant project so generously supported by the Rotary Foundation and our fellow International Rotary Clubs. Thanks to the enormous efforts by our grant partners in Kenya, RC Voi and the Beyond Innocence Foundation, we were able to quickly bring fresh drinking water to the people of Landi.

It has been a few months since our last update, but there is still much progress to report from the site of the well in Landi. While we in Europe complained about the freezing temperatures, it was the dry season in Kenya and the well really helped the local people.
