Mission San Jose Rotary Club


Rotary Clubs in Fremont, Newark, and Union City work together to support community service projects around the globe. By pooling our clubs’ international project funds and raising funds together, we are able to make a greater impact around the world. We have funded hospitals in India and Kenya, supported education in the Honduras and in rural India, helped generate oxygen for hospitals in Ethiopia, and provided eye surgeries to people in need. Our next project will bring clean water to a town in Uganda.
General funds raised from the campaign will go towards supporting this good work.
