Rotary is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace around the world.
Membership of Rotary develops leadership, public speaking, social, business, personal and vocational skills as well as improving cultural awareness. Clubs organise programmes and weekly meetings to keep members informed about what is going on in the community, the country, and the world.Rotary is a non-political, non-religious humanitarian organization. Each Rotary club uses its own judgment in conducting its meetings in a manner that reflects Rotary's principle of tolerance and emphasizes shared Rotarian service ideals and projects.
