What is the Orphan Train Project?
The Orphan Train Project is made possible by the Madison West Towne-Middleton Rotary Foundation, Inc.  It seeks to assist children living in foreign orphanages in a variety of ways, and has been doing so for twenty-two years.  Over the past two decades, more than fifty children’s homes, in ten different countries, have been helped. Some of the assistance has been for a number of years. However, help has sometimes been given once, with a single goal in mind.

The Rotary Friendship Exchange program gives Rotarians (including a spouse or significant other) the opportunity to host and visit Rotarians around the world. In addition to experiencing other cultures and making lasting friendships, an exchange provides a strong foundation for carrying out other international activities and service projects.
The primary goal of a Friendship Exchange is to build greater international understanding and goodwill. In addition, exchange participants can learn how their vocations are practiced in other parts of the world, observe new customs and cultures, and promote an appreciation of cultural diversity worldwide.
