Rotarians are people of action, driven by a desire to create opportunities, strengthen communities, and find solutions to the tough challenges that affect people around the world.
Rotary is a community of 1.2 million men and women from all continents, cultures, professions, and experiences who connect through our local clubs. Rotary clubs tackle projects of every scale and inspire fellow Rotarians, friends, neighbors, and partners to share their vision, exchange ideas for lasting solutions, and take action to bring those ideas to life.
Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
Promoting Peace: Rotary fosters understanding across cultures. We train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict and help refugees who have fled dangerous areas.
Fighting Disease: We are resolved to rid the world of polio forever. We also educate and equip communities to stop other diseases and expand access to health care.
Providing Clean Water: We help bring sustainable clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away.
Saving Mothers & Children: We expand access to quality medical care, sanitation, education and economic opportunities so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.
Supporting Education: Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.
Growing Local Economies: We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old.
