What is Rotary? 

Rotary is a global network of over 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders as well as problem solvers who see the world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. 

What does Rotary do? 

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 25,000 clubs work together to help others, across the globe, in our communities and in our self. 

Rotary Mission 

Rotary clubs provide service to others, promote integrity, goodwill and peace through our fellowship of business and community leaders. 

Rotto Motto - Service above Self 

One achieves great things not just through service, but through extraordinary service. When someone goes out of their way to help you, it makes all the difference in the world.
