Inner Wheel is one of the world’s largest women’s voluntary service organisations with non governmental organisation status at the United Nations and has representatives in Geneva, New York and Vienna. At the moment the clubs have more than 103 000 members in over 103 countries.
The beginning of Inner Wheel was set on January 10th , 1924 in Manchester (Great Britain), when Mrs. Margarette Golding presided a club established by Rotarian’s wives . Every year this day is celebrated as the World’s Inner Wheel Day.
At this date the name of Inner Wheel was given to the club, to symbolize the connection between Rotary and the smaller wheel inside. To the end of 1967 Inner Wheel clubs were formed all over the world and it was decided to set up International Inner Wheel.
