SERVICE ABOVE SELF
Join Leaders. Exchange Ideas. Take Action.
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
People of Action
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary’s people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Peace and conflict prevention / resolution
Rotary fosters understanding across cultures. We train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict and help refugees who have fled dangerous areas.
Disease prevention and treatment
We are resolved to rid the world of polio forever. We also educate and equip communities to stop other diseases and expand access to health care.
Water and sanitation
We help bring sustainable clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away.
Maternal and child health
We expand access to quality medical care, sanitation, education and economic opportunities so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.
Basic education and literacy
Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.
Economic and community development
We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old.
Protecting the environment
We are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment.
