Rotary International Partners with Habitat for Humanity and Toastmasters International
Rotary International and Habitat for Humanity International announced the two organizations’ formal partnership (https://www.rotary.org/en/rotary-partners-habitat-humanity) in October 2017, as the two reputable humanitarian organizations’ values are very much aligned in serving our communities around the globe. A win-win for both organizations, the collaboration yields numerous benefits at the local level.
 
Another partnership has emerged in 2020 is with Toastmasters International.  The ongoing relationship between the two organizations will begin at the grassroots level with local club members learning and working together. Additionally, Toastmasters will create a set of eight structured communication and leadership development courses for Rotary with a phased roll-out that will be available in English in 2020, and in more languages in 2021.
 
“Collaborating with Toastmasters will provide our members with even more opportunities to develop and improve their leadership and communication skills,” said John Hewko, general secretary and CEO of Rotary International. “In turn, members of Toastmasters can connect with more people, take advantage of new speaking and learning opportunities, and make a difference in their communities through Rotary.”
