Welcome to the Rotary Club of Ferney-Voltaire!

The Rotary Club of Ferney-Voltaire, gathers men and women of all ages, different nationalities and various professional sectors. Our members are business leaders, representatives of the professions or the public sector, entrepreneurs, craftsmen, members of international organizations but also retired! The purpose of Rotary is to serve others without expectation of return, without calculation. This spirit motivates all club members who volunteer their time to help those in need at the local, national, and international levels. Identifying needs, developing projects and carrying them out effectively are what motivate us; we devote most of our time to this, rather than to esoteric discussions, administrative formalities and protocol...... 

Here are some of the concrete achievements made in recent years.

At the local level:

  • Fight against digital poverty in favor of the association Atout Tattes. Donation of 2'000€ for the purchase of computer equipment.
  • Donation to the Accueil Gessien, for the purchase of furniture for their shelter. The sum of 6'000€ was collected through various sales actions: chocolate, oranges from Portugal and olive oil from Greece.
