Rotary provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts and prevent violence, which displace millions of people each year.

We are committed to global health programmes for control, elimination, eradication and prevent re-emergence of infectious diseases.
Community Economic Development
Providing vocational training, assistance in further education, guidance in self employment and perhaps material support to improve quality of life.
Basic Education and Literacy
Every child has a right for basic education and literacy. Our programmes are aimed at providing scholarships and infrastructure support for them.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
We undertake sustainable community projects to improve drinking water and the sanitation infrastructure.
Maternal and Child Health
Educating mothers in healthcare and child nutrition have helped many families to bring up their children with care and responsibility.
We are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment.

The birth and growth of Rotary club of Trincomalee had been unique and remarkable. It began with the transfer of an enthusiastic Rotarian from Batticaloa to Trincomalle Kachcheri in 1978. He was no less a person than the additional government Agent Rtn. N. Pathmanathan, who now hails as the Past District Governor of our RI District 3220.
With the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Batticaloa, Rtn. N Pathmanathan as the Special representative who was fully dedicated towards Rotary, lost no time to team himself with a selected group of professionals, visited the residents of prospective members, briefed them of “What is Rotary” and had convinced them to fall in line with his ideas. It resulted in the formal inaugural meeting of the club held at the social service centre on the 12th November, 1978 at 5.30pm. Rotarians from the sponsoring club Batticaloa, special invitees and distinguished guests graced this occasion. There were 26 charter members.
The club received its charter on 03rd May, 1979.
