About Rotary District 2451

Our Rotary district was established under the name of the "Eastern Mediterranean District", that was at the very beginning, 1929. The name was changed several times; on 1st of July 1935 changed to "District D", 1936 to District "83", 1949 to District "89" and 1957 to "District 195" In 1977 to District "245".

In 1991 the name of our district became District 2450. In the year 1996, Rotary has been stopped in Syria and the District remained with only nine countries; Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Cyprus, Georgia, Bahrain, U.A.E., Sudan and Armenia.

Being the second biggest Rotary International District around the world, consisting of nine countries from three different continents “Africa, Asia and Europe” with six spoken languages:- Arabic, French, English, Russian, Armenian and Greek, our District was characterized by being away of any racism or discrimination according to race, color, religion or nationality.

Finally and in the year 2013 Egypt became a separate District which was called “District 2451”.

Stephanie Urchick

Toward a greater vision Rotary is at its best when we foster a sense of inclusion and belonging in our clubs. In fact, I would go so far as to say that belonging is The Magic of Rotary itself.

With a focus on inclusivity and belonging, it is easier to be united in a common purpose. When we are committed to one another and focused on our goals, we are most effective.

Rotary’s Action Plan can help.

The Action Plan comes with tools you can use to collect feedback, assess your club’s strengths and weaknesses, and address challenges. The world is changing, and our clubs can’t afford to stand still.

Our Causes

Promoting peace

Rotary encourages conversations to foster understanding within and across cultures. We train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict and help refugees who have fled dangerous areas.

Fighting disease

We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene

We support local solutions to bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away. We share our expertise with community leaders and educators to make sure our projects succeed long-term.

Saving mothers and children

Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.

Supporting education

More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

Growing local economies

We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old. We also strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

Protecting the environment

Rotary members are tackling environmental issues the way they always do: coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy and planning for the future.
