WHAT IS ROTARY?

What would it take to change the world?

Rotary International is the world's first service club organisation, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide.

 

Rotary club members (known as Rotarians) are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.

 

Rotary is a family of 1.2 million passionate individuals who together lead change in our own backyards and across the world.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective.
Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.
Rotary is recognised worldwide as one of the driving forces in the decades-long campaign to eradicate polio – a campaign that is very close to victory.
 
Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities' toughest challenges.
Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world.
Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organisation's mission and values in their elected roles.

WHY ROTARY?

Exchange ideas.

Friendship

Service

ROTARY MEANS BUSINESS NETWORKING

Whilst Rotarians work together for service and fellowship, ­ushering in transformation in communities, there is one more reason for them to network.

The Rotary Means Business (RMB) Fellowship returns to the roots of Rotary and encourages Rotarians to support the success of their fellow Rotarians by doing business with them, and by referring others to them.

ROTARY WORLD WIDE INITIATIVE

- GLOBAL POLIO ERADICATION

In 1985, Rotary International started planning the largest immunisation program in world's history, the goal of eradicating Poliomyelitis worldwide, and now Rotary is very close to achieving that objective.
From hundreds of thousands of reported cases a year in 1988 when immunisation began to only 412 cases reported in 2013. 
In 2017, thee are only three cases left in the world.
