The specific purpose for which the Rotary Corporation was organized, as written in articles of incorporation, is to provide opportunities for Rotarians in the United States and throughout the countries of Caribbean and North Atlantic to become better educated as to our respective cultural similarities and differences, and to develop relationships, share knowledge, ideas and interests that would result in Partnered Clubs which provide for worthy community needs, assisting individuals in need with the basic necessities of life, advancing education and literacy, eliminating prejudice and discrimination, and as always, advancing peace through fellowship
Caribbean Partnership Inc. is a Program of Rotary International, Zones 33 and 34’s, 29 Districts, representing 125K Rotarians. Rotary is a (501)c3.
