Rotary is harnessing Virtual Reality

Rotary is harnessing the immersive power of virtual reality to create a more connected, stronger world.

Virtual reality connects with people on a visceral, personal level in a way that words simply can’t. Rather than tell you how Rotary is changing lives, let us show you.

Get the Rotary VR app

By combining the power of Rotary’s virtual reality app with a VR viewer and smartphone, you can immerse yourself in some of Rotary’s most meaningful work. 

To experience virtual reality, download the Rotary VR App to your smartphone. For optimal viewing, use a VR viewer and noise canceling headphones to immerse yourself in any of Rotary’s VR films.

You can also view a 360° version of our VR films simply by watching them on your computer or smartphone.

For more information on what Rotary is doing with Virtual Reality please visit https://www.rotary.org/en/virtual-reality

Below is a 2D trailer version of one of the VR films available just now. It travels with Patience Asiimwe and her fellow Rotaractors to a remote region of Uganda to vaccinate children who otherwise would be missed against polio. See how far Patience will go to make sure every child in her country is protected from polio.

Awards & Recognitions

Supporting Integration in Sweden – through music

RCSI gives Ron Pavellas Award to DJ Maytan, founder of the George Graham Foundation.

The Rotary Cub of Stockholm International strongly supports efforts to integrate immigrants into Swedish society. Each year we provide the Ron Pavellas Award, with SEK 10,000, in honour of our Charter President, to an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to integration in Sweden. This year we award the prize to DJ Maytan who established the George Graham Foundation in Sigtuna, Sweden. The foundation supports integration through the universal language of music and song. It recognises everybody’s individual contribution and provides a place for people from all backgrounds to meet, learn from each other and create something beautiful together using their own skills and cultural backgrounds.

Anidan Project Fundraiser – A resounding success!

Thanks to all who attended our fundraiser event for Anidan that was held on Friday 5th October. We are so pleased to announce that not only did we reach our target goal of Euro 6000 but we exceeded it by a further Euro 3000+; this additional amount will now go towards providing additional support to the students at Anidan in 2019.

So on behalf of RCSI we would like to thank all of you who attended our fundraiser and for your generosity and help in making the event such a fun and resounding success. 103 primary and secondary school students at Anidan Shelter in Lamu, Kenya will now benefit from your kindness.
