Social projects

Rotary members have a shared responsibility to take action in our world's most persistent issues. They focus opon:

  • Promoting peace
  • Fighting disease
  • Providing clean water and sanitation
  • Protecting mothers and children
  • Supporting education
  • Growing local economies

With the basic philosophy of Rotary International in mind, Rotary Club Brussels International is involved in the following activities:

Johan Cruyff Foundation:

Promoting sports by building a Cruyff football field as a means to give youth in Molenbeek a safe playing environment and where themes such as respect for each other, health, integration, development and team building are central. Those themes are based upon Johan Cruyff's 14 rules. It is not a coincidence that these same themes are the essence of a successfully integrated community. They can be found on each and every one of the Cruyff Courts worldwide:

1 Teamplayer: to accomplish things, you have to do it together, 2 Responsibility: Take good care of things as if it was your own, 3 Respect: Respect one another, 4 Integration: Involve others in your activities, 5 Initiative: Dare to try something new, 6 Coaching: Always help each other within a team, 7 Personality: Be yourself, 8 Social Involvement: Crucial in sports, and even more so in life in general, 9 Technique: The basics, 10 Tactics: Know what to do, 11 Development: Sports develop body and soul, 12 Learn: Try to learn something new every day, 13 Play Together: An essential part of the game, 14 Creativity: The beauty of sports.

End Polio Now!

Rotary, along with partners such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and many others, has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since its first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need to finish the job.

Rotary Club Brussels International is one of the contributors to this worldwide campaign and has committed to continue funding the polio eradication program.

Local initiatives:

Rotary Club Brussels International is committed to supporting local initiatives with a specific link to our capital city and therefore selects projects in a sustained manner that typically lasts for three consecutive years. After selecting a project, our social affairs commission stays involved and closely monitors the effectiveness of the funding effort. A reassessment is made every year before prolonging the financial support of the local projects.
