Overview



ITHF exists to promote and facilitate regional, national, and international "connections" between its members. ITHF members visit other members of the Fellowship and have the opportunity to host Rotarian members from other countries. Our lives are enriched by these connections and cross-cultural exchanges, but don't take our word for it, see what our members have to say:



Medicare and Linda Hsu
Taipei, Taiwan

ITHF President, 2015-17
Since joining Rotary in 1986, we have more chances to travel than I used to have in business, and find ITHF is the greatest Rotary Fellowship and makes us busier! ITHF tours not only give us an opportunity to explore the country hosting RI Convention but also allows us to interact with local Rotarians. Besides the tours, ITHF also helps build a global network of Rotarians and families. Through the ITHF website and CONNECTIONS, ITHFers can establish and deepen their friendship with members of different lifestyles and cultures. Finally, I would like to encourage members to think about organizing their own exploration tours to introduce their county to ITHFers.

Vice President
A World Traveler and a passionate one, I have been indebted to ITHF for lifetime connections in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and parts of Asia. I’ve been a volunteer to teach Communicative English in Taiwan only because of ITHF. This Fellowship has changed my life forever. Many projects also happened due to ITHF. The tours have been a great success and the experience has been most fulfilling. I’ve been hosted more in comparison to hosting but always looking for an opportunity to host. I enjoy ITHF so much! 
Rick and Mary Ellen Harned
Louisville, Kentucky, USA

Administrator, 2017-2020
ITHF makes possible our preferred mode of travel, which is to learn about a new city or country through the lens of those who live there. In turn, we enjoy introducing our city of Louisville to visiting Rotarians. After superb hospitality in Argentina and Japan, and then friendships evolving from the pre-convention Portugal Tour, Rick agreed to serve as the group’s Treasurer, and then berween 2017 and 2020, he served as Administrator. A recent trip to Australia and New Zealand was enriched by ten ITHF homestays or shorter connections.

Members planning travel can refer to the Members Only database on the ITHF website to identify other ITHF members living in the areathey play to visit. Prospective hosts should be contacted 30+ days in advance and they can consent to a "connection" subject to their own convenience. "Connection" details are worked out between the members.


ITHF "connections" are self-paced, subject to individual preferences and can coincide with business or pleasure travel. Membership in the ITHF implies a desire and intent to accommodate other ITHF visitors; however, such "connections" are always subject to the convenience of the hosts.

As an enrichment, the ITHF frequently offers "tours" led by dedicated and experienced Rotarians, and packaged at the lowest cost possible. These tours most often coincide with Rotary International Conventions and are limited to ITHF members and partners only.

The ITHF is NOT a bed and breakfast organizatio nor is It a home hotel association. There is no obligation to accommodate visitors in your home; however, your connection" will be richer for having hosted fellow Rotaries from around the world.​​​​​​​
