Welcome to Rotary District 5890, composed of sixty-five vibrant clubs across the greater Houston metropolitan area.  The Rotarians in our area truly exemplify Rotary's motto of ''Service Above Self'' with projects in local communities as well as international projects around the world.  Rotary International is working diligently to cross the finish line of eradicating Polio worldwide and District 5890 is working hard to aid in that effort.  So whether your passion is in water projects, literacy, hunger, health, or peace, Rotary has something to offer you.

I encourage you to explore our website for local events and service opportunities as well as information about District 5890.  There are a variety of clubs that meet for breakfast, lunch, and happy hour; and we even have an e-Club for those people who travel for work or have limited time for weekly meetings.  There is a place for you in our Rotary family.

The 2014 District 5890 Rotary Foundation Seminar, held on September 20, 2014, was a celebration of the many International and Local Service Projects which were larger in size and scope due to funding from Our Rotary Foundation and was also a celebration of giving by our District’s Rotarians!

 I started off the Seminar by saying “If you are one of those Rotarians who think Rotary is still an old man’s organization which never changes – or is changing too slowly – you are in the wrong place, because today, you will see a new face of Rotary and will see how Rotary is changing the world!”

They say that there are moments and experiences that change your life, they challenge you, they teach you, they open your eyes and ...they shape you into a new person.  My Ambassadorial Year with Rotary proved that to be true. While I knew it would define a lot of things about my future and bring about many changes I must say that I got a lot more than I bargained for and I am glad I did.

Indian Clerics offer to Help Fight Polio in Pakistan - noting that "India is not safe until neighboring Pakistan is Polio-free" , members of India's Rotary Muslim Ulema committee have come forward to offer their assistance in dispelling the myths surrounding Polio vaccinations in Pakistan. Religious leaders have administered Polio drops to their children in front of cameras and they now believe the magic (of zero Polio cases for over 2 years in India) could be repeated in Pakistan.
