What is Rotary?

Rotary is a global organization that unites business and professional leaders in a shared commitment to humanitarian service, ethical standards, and goodwill worldwide. It is a diverse community of individuals who come together to make a positive impact on the world.


Rotary's core mission is service. Rotary clubs across the globe undertake a wide array of service projects. These initiatives include community development, supporting local schools and hospitals, organizing fundraisers, addressing environmental issues, and providing disaster relief, among others.

Youth, International, Vocational, and Community

Rotary strongly supports youth through leadership programs, scholarships, mentorship, and exchange opportunities, empowering young people to develop valuable skills and contribute to their communities. Rotary's international efforts foster goodwill and peace through various projects and cultural exchanges. Additionally, Rotary places a strong emphasis on vocational service, which focuses on improving professional and leadership skills among its members while serving local communities. Community service is at the heart of Rotary, as clubs work tirelessly to address the needs of their local areas, promoting positive change close to home.

Rotary's impact extends worldwide, transcending borders and cultures, making it a powerful force for positive change on a global scale.
