Over the years, the Rotary Club of Kandy has cooperated with the Rotary Foundation and with Rotary Clubs across the world to provide clean water and good sanitation to poor rural communities and schools. The focus on schools not only ensures that students have adequate sanitation and safe, hygienic conditions but also encourages basic education, especially for girls who are usually more disadvantaged than boys by not having appropriate toilet facilities. Encouraging better hygiene also helps reduce the spread of communicable diseases among school children and gives them an appreciation of the importance of cleanliness.
Rotary International is an organization of service clubs located all over the world. It is a secular organization open to all persons regardless of race, colour, creed, gender, or political preference. There are more than 32,000 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. The members of Rotary Clubs are known as Rotarians. The stated purpose of the organization is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Members usually meet weekly for breakfast, lunch or dinner, which is a social event as well as an opportunity to organize work on their service goals.
