Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:

  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease (Polio Eradication)
  • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Save mothers and children
  • Support education
  • Grow local economies

Every day, in our communities and around the world, our neighbors face tough challenges — conflict, disease, and lack of clean water, health care, education, and economic opportunity.

Rotarians have a vision of what’s possible for their neighbors. They mobilize community leaders and experts to take action and make a real difference.

  • For over a century, Rotary has united leaders of all ages and experiences, cultures, and professions, to strengthen their communities.
  • Through regular club programs, projects, and neighborhood activities, our members learn about the issues that face our communities and exchange ideas about how to take action to respond to them.
  • Members also connect through club events, outings, and visits to other clubs around the globe, giving them unique opportunities to forge personal and professional connections.
  • Together with our partners, neighbors, and friends, we’re:
    • Promoting peace, encouraging dialogue to foster understanding within and across cultures
    • Fighting disease, educating and equipping communities to stop the spread of life-threatening or preventable diseases.
    • Providing clean water, building local solutions to bring clean water and sanitation services to more people every day.
