Welcome to the CMIRC website!
Wow, it's hard to believe it has already been a month since taking on my role as President and I must say I am truly honored to have been entrusted with this role. From working with kids in the Water Safety Project, to hearing member stories, to meeting new people and making new friends, Rotary truly has enriched my life and made me realize how important it is to give back to my community. We'd love to have you join us and experience this for yourself!

Chiang Mai International Rotary Club!(CMIRC)
What we are doing:
Currently our ongoing service projects include our Children’s Water Safety (Drown Proofing) project with the goal of reducing the drownings of young Thai children, our Children’s Sight Project, providing eye examinations and spectacles to poor children in Chiang Mai province. We also support The Mae Tao Clinic. We have been chosen by One World Play Project to distribute their “indestructible” footballs to poor and disadvantaged schools and learning centers. The BaBar Project helps teach young children to respect life. Each year we conduct a Winter Clothing Appeal supplying warm clothing to hill tribe children.

CMIRC was chartered as club # 85590 on 21 February 2014. We are group of women and men, from many nationalities, committed to the Rotary guiding principle of “Service Above Self”. Membership is open to all, regardless of gender, religious affiliation, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or nationality. Our members convey “Community Service with a Smile”

We are a small friendly group dedicated to protecting children through our service projects. With you we can do even more! Rotary meetings are open to members, visiting Rotarians and invited guests.
