What is a Rotarian?
• A Rotarian is a person who digs wells from which they will never drink,
• A person who vaccinates children they will never meet,
• Who restores sight for those they will never see,
• Who builds houses they will never live in,
• Who educates children they will never know,
• Who plants trees they will never sit under,
• Who feeds hungry people, regardless of race, religion or politics,
• Who makes crawlers walk half a world away,
• Who knows real happiness, which as Albert Schweitser said, can only be found by serving others.

Immersion in another country’s educational system enhances their academic and personal growth. Host clubs and families and the entire community are enriched by extended, friendly contact with someone from a different culture
