rotaryHere in Belize the Rotary Clubs are under the umbrella of Rotary District 4250, which comprises of clubs from Belize, Honduras and Guatemala. Here at home the oldest club is Rotary Belize which houses the Belmopan, Corozal, Dangriga, Orange Walk, Placencia, and San Ignacio clubs.

The members of each club take pride in serving their community by carrying out projects and vocational commitments but there is always more that needs to be done but not enough hands to get the job done.

And that is the problem that the Rotary Club of Corozal is currently facing, a shortage of membership. Wanting to turn things around, today the club launched a campaign to recruit more members.

“What is the main role of Rotary or Rotaract in the community and how is it that you go along providing these services that you all do?”

“Rotary first of all in an international organization and basically our Rotary Club of Corozal helps with humanitarian efforts in this areas but we are also a global thing and we help with world peace as well as fighting polio, we do scholarships for the young kids so that they can go to school to get a better education but we are basically out Moto is to service about self, so anything that we can do to help others and our community and that is what we do so it is all about humanitarianism and wants to help themselves to help others.”
