   The purpose of the Rotarian Action Group for Blindness Prevention is to bring together, in fellowship and service, those Rotarians who have an active interest in the prevention of blindness and the promotion of eye health and vision worldwide; to provide both a platform and a forum to discuss ideas and develop appropriate cooperative programs to further our shared goals; and to promote international understanding and peace through common purpose and efforts.

 

   Like most Rotarian Action Groups, members of the group will help Rotary clubs conduct community assessments, identify international partners, incorporate sustainability components into their grant applications, and secure funding for global grants. They’ll also provide advice on global grant application, help create a plan for monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the grant, help promote an ongoing/completed project, and provide subject matter speakers at a meeting or event.  Find this Action Group here: http://www.rag4bp.org/
 
   Rotary Action Groups are independent, Rotary-affiliated groups made up of people from around the world who are experts in a particular field, such as economic development, peace, addiction prevention, the environment, or water.

   Action groups offer their technical expertise and support to help clubs plan and implement projects to increase our impact, one of Rotary's strategic priorities. This support includes helping clubs find partners, funding, and other resources. Action groups can also help clubs and districts prepare grant applications, conduct community assessments, and develop plans to monitor and evaluate their projects. Read more about these activities in the .

Anyone who wants to share their expertise to make a positive difference can join a Rotary Action Group. Only Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Rotary Peace Fellows can serve in leadership roles.
