RFPD supports its vision by educating 1.2 million Rotarians and Rotary leaders on Population Concerns, and by promoting Rotary humanitarian projects that directly address the population and development issue. Rotary serves over 200 countries around the world.
Create Awareness of critical Issues related to world population growth and sustainable development and implement relevant projects.
Working Goal: To encourage Rotary clubs and districts, working as appropriate with government agencies, non-governmental organizations and local leadership, to increase awareness and undertake even more projects that directly impact population growth and sustainable development. Projects would include those that promote education on the issue of population, access to family health care, adequate nutrition and enable individuals to make informed and responsible decisions about issues such as child spacing in a way that is in keeping with their personal values and cultural and religious considerations.
