Our club has initiated various successful projects supporting children from underprivileged backgrounds who are living in the Netherlands. Two reoccuring events in our Rotary year are Breaking the Ice, which gives children from different backgrounds living in 't Gooi region a morning of skating fun, and the Pony Event, where children spend an afternoon at the stables to tame and care for ponies and enjoy pony and wagon rides.

From our chairman

Johanna Martinez, chairman RCHI

“To do all what is in our hands to make a difference”

Rotary Club Hilversum International is a very unique club, all our members share an international background either by work experience or by origin. Though we are different, we have a lot in common. What joins us is our interest to make an impact in the lives of others and the fact that we are all in a very productive stage of our careers, though a young club, we have built a strong social bond that allows us to work effectively together. 

As this year’s club president, I carefully chose a symbol and a slogan that would represent us and our motto to accomplish our projects and grow as a club. As a symbol, I chose our hands, because with our hands we create, and by working together, we have more hands on the job. Therefore, our slogan is: “To do all what is in our hands to make a difference”. 

Internationally our projects look to support empowering women and locally we are focused in making a difference in the lives of those that come to this country in search of a better life. If you share our vision and projects, we would be happy to welcome you in our team.

Johanna Martínez, chairman RCHI

People with a Passion

This Rotary year we are presenting the series "People with a Passion", a series of speakers that visit our club to tell about their exceptional initiatives and inspiring stories.  In 2018 we had the pleasure of welcoming Lukas Grosfeld of Wakulimarket, Mark Schneiders of the KIT-SDG House and Bert Bruns of Bridges2Beyond to our club evenings.

Our 2019 got off to a very musical start with a concert at de Nieuwe Jurk in Huizen, with musicians from another wonderful cause, Stichting Appeltaartconcerten.   In initiating these sorts of events our club hopes to continue to support our local community as well as organizations that are focused on contributing to our society in a very positive way.
