The Chariho Rotary Club is a network of neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change -across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. 

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs worldwide work together to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever. We do this by driving impact in seven distinct areas of focus. Our Chariho Club works to initiate and fund projects on both the local and international level that align with these focus areas.
