We are people of action, motivated to improve our communities by making a direct and lasting impact through service.

We are problem solvers, working together to find solutions to global challenges.

We promote integrity through our fellowship of business, professional, and local leaders.

Together we transform communities, ourselves, and the future of Rotary in many ways.

Our Causes

Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

PEACEBUILDING AND CONFLICT PREVENTION

Rotary encourages conversations to foster understanding within and 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 educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

WATER, SANITATION, AND HYGIENE

We support local solutions to bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away. We share our expertise with community leaders and educators to make sure our projects succeed long-term.

MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH

Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.

BASIC EDUCATION AND LITERACY

More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old. We also strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

Rotary members are tackling environmental issues the way they always do: coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy and planning for the future.
