What is Rotary ?

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who unite and take action to create sustainable change around the world, in our communities and in ourselves.

What we do

At the heart of Rotary, is our CLUBS – we are dedicated people who share a passion for both community service and friendship. We have 35,000+ clubs around the world all working together to:

Who we are

We connect people

Through our clubs, members from all continents and cultures unite to exchange ideas, form friendships and professional connections, while making a difference in their local communities and around the world.

We think differently

Our diverse and multi-disciplinary perspectives help us see challenges in unique ways. Members apply their leadership and expertise toward addressing social issues — and finding unique solutions.

We solve problems

We connect continents and bridge cultures to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, save mothers and children, grow economies, and prevent disease.

We transform communities

Each day, members pour their passion, integrity and intelligence into club projects that have a sustained impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions to the issues facing our communities.

We transform ourselves

Through Rotary, members are exposed to new thoughts, professions, and opportunities to broaden their perspectives. From weekly meetings and club projects, to fundraisers and networking events, our members develop skills that help make them better individuals, community leaders and humanitarians.

We are people of action

Rotarians share a unique passion for taking action to improve their communities and the world. For 110 years, members have poured their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. 

Our new vision

“TOGETHER, WE see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

To realize this vision, we set four priorities that will direct our work over the next five years:

• Increase our impact

• Expand our reach

• Enhance participant engagement

• Increase our ability to adapt
