Rotary Changes Lives
Most charities are formed for a specific purpose: Rotary is not. What is Rotary trying to achieve? Quite simply its overarching aim is to change people’s lives.
Where and how it does this is diverse.
· For twenty-eight years Rotary has been at the forefront of the worldwide programme to eliminate polio. There are now only four countries left reporting a small number of cases. That is changing people’s lives.
· Following the earthquake in Turkey the ShelterBox, charity, strongly supported by Rotary, immediately sent 5,000 ShelterBoxes to the stricken areas. Each provides essential items for shelter, warmth and clean water for ten people: 50,000 people benefited. That is changing people’s lives.
· Rotary clubs raise funds for many local charities helping them in their essential work. Through them Rotary is again helping to change people’s lives.
· Rotary has projects to help young people widen their experience, improve their life skills, and bolster their confidence. That is changing their lives.
· The voluntary work that Rotarians do in their own community helps to make a more pleasant environment for its residents. That, in a small way, is changing people’s lives.
Who are the men and women who call themselves Rotarians? Look at any disparate group of people and you are sure to be looking at a Rotarian. Look in the mirror and you could be seeing one there.
Why do Rotarians do it? Rotary has a motto ‘Service above Self’ :
· Meeting regularly, fellowship grows into friendship with like-minded men and women.
· Talks, visits and social activities is a feature at all clubs
· Rotary is family orientated; partners and friends are welcomed and involved.
· Rotary is a world-wide; Rotarians are welcomed at any club anywhere.
· Using one’s life-skills, in a less stressful environment, helping those who are less fortunate
is both satisfying and relaxing.
Rotary is fun.
Becoming a Rotarian could help change your life.
