The Rosini Lens Project

Change Lives and See the Beauty of Grand Bahama!

Ready for a fun and rewarding adventure? Join fellow Rotarians from Rotary Clubs of Fleming Island and Orange Park Sunrise on a service weekend to Freeport, Grand Bahama in February 2025!

Make a Difference:  We'll be partnering with the Rosani Lens Project to provide vision care to those in need. Imagine the joy of restoring sight and empowering lives through the gift of glasses!

Explore Paradise: Beyond the meaningful service project, discover the beauty of Grand Bahama. Connect with fellow Rotarians and the friendly Bahamian community. Add a few days to the trip and relax on pristine beaches and soak up the local culture.

Don't Miss Out! Previous participants called it "life-changing." Sign up by December 1st and secure your spot on this unforgettable journey.

The Rosini Lens Project's mission is to empower lives and communities by restoring sight. This global project brings kits to overseas locations where optometrists and affordable glasses are unavailable. The Rosani Lens Project is a Jacksonville-based 501C3. www.rosanilensproject.org

2025 will be the 3rd time we will travel to Grand Bahamas to provide approximately 250 pairs of eyeglasses using the Rosani Lens Project kits plus over 400 reading glasses. We are partnering with the Grand Bahama and Freeport Rotary Clubs and local public health officials. The Bahamian Rotary Clubs will provide the venue and attract the population that will be served.
