About Us

Rotary Missions and Values

The collective leadership and expertise of our 1.2 million members helps us tackle some of the worlds biggest challenges, locally and globally. We are united by common values and vision for the future as we sharpen our focus with targeted specific causes that will reach communities most in need.

As an international organization, we direct our efforts in six areas of service to enhance our local and global impact. Our most successful and sustainable projects and activities tend to fall within the following areas:

·       Promoting peace

·       Fighting disease

·       Providing clean water

·       Saving mothers and children

·       Supporting education

·       Growing local economies

Guiding our values is the Rotary Four-Way Test of the things we think, say and do. The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:

Of the things we think, say or do

·       Is it the TRUTH?

·       Is it FAIR to all concerned?

·       Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

·       Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
