Business Information




Rotary was founded in 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney from Chicago, USA. Since then it has grown into the massive organization it is today with over 1.2 million stakeholders in 200 different countries. Rotary International could never have imagined that there would be more than 16 million hours volunteered by the public each year, a number that continues to grow.



Rotary International Stanford has many projects that they are faithfully committed to, which include:

Soup kitchens in Stanford
  • This ongoing project feeds over 500 underprivileged elders, children and unemployed members of the Stanford community at four different locations.
Bags Of Love

  • This generous project gives an estimated 300 Christmas grocery gift bags to families within the community who need a helping hand during the festive season when the soup kitchen closes for the year.
Winter Warmth
  • This project collects and then provides blankets and clothing which is handed out each May to the less fortunate who could do with a little warmth during winter.
Penguin Plunge
  • This an initiative where participants brave the cold water of the Klein Rivier for a good cause. There are two teams of participants in this charitable swimming event, namely the Plunging Penguins and the Cheering Chickens, where the main aim is to raise funds for the soup kitchens in Stanford.
Consol Solar Glass Jar Project

  • This project aims to light up the lives of those members of the community who live in informal settlements with no electricity. For some, this is the only safe source of light to study or cook with and greatly helps in preventing shack fires.
Swop Shop
  • Rotary International Stanford founded the swap shop and later handed it over to the community. The Rotary still remains a proud supporter of the shop.
