Come and Join us

1. Professional Networking:

A founding principle of Rotary was to provide a forum for professional and business people. Members are leaders in business and commerce, industry, the professions, the arts, government, sports and religion. They make decisions and influence policy. Rotary is the oldest, most prestigious service-club organization in the world.

2. The Opportunity to Serve:

Rotarians provide service at both the community and international levels. Service programs address health care needs, hunger and poverty, literacy, disaster relief, and environmental issues, to name a few. Members experience the fulfilment that comes from giving back to the community.

3. Personal Growth and Development:

Membership in Rotary ensures continuing personal and professional development. Leadership, public speaking organization and planning, communication, team-building, fundraising and teaching are just a sampling of the skills that can be exercised and enhanced through Rotary.

4. Friendship:

Fellowship was a primary reason Rotary was started in 1905, and it remains a major attraction. Today, with more than 30,000 Rotary clubs in over 160 countries, Rotarians have friends wherever they go. Rotary helps to build community as well as enduring friendships.

5. Cultural Diversity:

Rotary International is an association of local clubs in many countries. Clubs are open to members of every ethnic group, political persuasion, language, and religious beliefs. Rotary clubs contain a cross-section of the world's leaders. They practice and promote tolerance.

6. Good Citizenship:

Membership of Rotary promotes good citizenship. Weekly Rotary club meetings keep members informed about what is taking place in the community, nationally, and internationally. Rotary's expansive network of clubs and programmes provides wide-ranging opportunities for service and interchange.

7. World Understanding:

Rotary members gain an understanding of humanitarian issues and have a significant impact on them through international service projects and the exchange programs of Rotary International and its own charity
