A little taste of what Community Service do
'WE'RE FOR COMMUNITIES'
Service defines Rotary's character; whether local or international, it promotes Rotary's appeal and visibility in the community, and is the reason Rotary continues to grow.
Rotary is at the heart of every community. In just about every town and city, there is a Rotary club, and its members are passionate about the community in which they live and work.
Members of Rotary are community champions. They stand up for what is right and positive within their local community and in communities overseas; they support those who need help; they strive to improve lives; they fight injustice and challenge wrongs within society. They bring about positive change in their neighbourhoods by fostering and building strong communities.
Every event, initiative or project we run is rooted in the notion of 'Community'. Because we believe that society works better when we work together.
Rotary's mission is simply to serve others; to give something back; to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace by utilising the skills, talents and energy of our members collectively.
- We want to bring about positive change in our neighbourhoods by fostering and building strong communities.
- We want to provide opportunities that will improve lives.
- We want to help eradicate poverty, hunger and preventable disease across the world.
Our motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of Rotary members worldwide to serve the community and put its needs before the member's own. Around the world, our main focuses are:
- Economic and community development
- Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
- Disease prevention and treatment
- Water and sanitation
- Maternal and child health
- Basic education and literacy.
