Rotary in Africa started as a Rotary International committee called Reach Out to Africa or ROTA. The purpose of ROTA was to enhance Rotary in Africa with an emphasis on service project development and partnerships with Rotary clubs and districts in other countries. In keeping with current trends ROTA ceased to be a Rotary International committee in the Rotary year 2016-2017 and, as ROTA has established a continent wide network, it was decided to continue promoting Rotary in Africa through this this website, other social media platforms and using the resources of Rotarians throughout Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. We invite you to browse this website to learn more about Rotary activities in Africa.
