Nazilla Jamshidi, founding member of the Rotary Club of Herat, Afghanistan, shared her story and passion as a Rotarian in establishing a Rotary Club in Afghanistan. From five original members the RC of Herat has grown to 25 members and is active in environmental education, homeless and health projects in Herat and its surrounding areas. Nazilla continues to focus on gender awareness and educational issues in Afghanistan and developing countries.
The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill looks forward to supporting Nazilla in her efforts and welcomes her to the RCCH family.

The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill teamed with the Raney-Moss Group (RMG) and friends to create and deliver care packages to homeless students in DC. This is an ongoing effort by Rotarians and partners to serve segments of the student body in local colleges that require day-to-day support. Working with college Outreach programs, RMG and its partners provide monthly personal care items. Thank you for your donations!

Volunteer your skills with local nonprofits to achieve higher impact with your service work/hours.

Non-Rotarians can participate too and are welcome to join the teams that will be formed to advise each participating nonprofit.
