Rotary is 1.4 million passionate individuals in 46,000+ clubs worldwide. We are both an international organization and a local community leader. Together we lead change in our own backyards and across the world.
Local Rotary groups are inclusive of all cultures, races and creeds. Individual Rotary groups are unique but, in broad terms, they usually focus on:
local community projects,
addressing such issues as literacy, drug abuse, environmental concerns,
helping the elderly,
helping the disadvantaged
stimulating young people
an agreeable progamme of social activities.
Rotary, world-wide, supports programmes for youth, educational opportunities, international exchanges for students and other professionals, and address critical issues in many communities around the world, including health, literacy, clean water supply and the eradication of polio. Rotarians voluntarily undertake projects locally & globally, using their skills and talents to help create a better world.
Being part of that global organisation, called Rotary International, we are welcome to visit any Rotary group meeting anywhere in the world. Individual groups hold regular gatherings and social events to involve families and create the fellowship which gives rise to programmes of projects and social events.
