Rotary International (RI) was founded in 1905, it now consists of 35,000+ clubs with 1.2 million members across the globe. RI is committed to building international relationships, improve lives and create a better world to support its peace efforts and end polio forever. RI’s actions are directed towards 7 areas of focus:
Providing clean water and sanitation
Growing local Economies

Protecting the environment
Our Club which was founded in June 2004, enjoys a diverse membership, including Jamaicans and members from North America and Europe with different professional backgrounds. Members are committed to helping our community grow, in particular through childhood education and providing opportunities for the youth. Although a relatively small club, our impact is increased by working with overseas Rotary clubs, with other like-minded organizations here and abroad, and with the local community.
We meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 6.30 pm at The Boardwalk Village, Norman Manley Boulevard, Negril. However, for the duration of COVID restrictions, we will continue with virtual meetings, at the same time on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, please check with the Club Secretary (Jim Bok, 876 881 1763) for Zoom meeting details.
