The Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project was formed in 1989 by members of the Rotary Club of Los Altos, USA with a goal of alerting and educating Rotarians worldwide about the AIDS pandemic. A 30-minute video, The Los Altos Story, was produced, translated into six languages and distributed worldwide to encourage other Rotarians to initiate AIDS awareness projects of their own. The award-winning film with its message of compassion and understanding has now been seen by millions of people throughout the world.
Now more than a decade after the Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project was founded, members of the Rotary Club of Los Altos are still working to promote AIDS education and awareness. In addition to continuing to distribute “The Los Altos Story” to call attention to the AIDS pandemic, one of the most important goals of the Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project is to motivate Rotarians to become involved in the global fight against AIDS.
It is the belief of the Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project that Rotary International has the opportunity to take a leadership role in the global fight against a lethal disease by promoting AIDS awareness through education and information to its members and others throughout the world.
In its role as a catalyst, the Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project offers a way for Rotarians to make important connections with others who are interested in doing something about addressing the global AIDS pandemic.
With over 1.2 million members in 176 countries, Rotary is an international service organization of business and professional men and women who conduct humanitarian projects, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and work toward world understanding and peace.
