About Rotary - We're for Communities
Rotary is a worldwide network of business men and women, professionals and community leaders - men and women who are passionate about social causes, who want to change lives for the better in their communities. There are over 1.2 million Rotary club members in some 34,000 Rotary clubs spread across 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. This huge global network of Rotarians volunteer their time and their talents to serve their communities - locally, nationally and around the world - and form strong, lasting and powerful friendships in the process.
Rotary clubs are firmly based within local communities, with their members meeting on a regular basis to enjoy friendship and networking, and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others. The video below sums it up rather well!
Rotary clubs depend on the skills, the expertise and the dedication of their members, who work hard to change the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.
We are 1.2 million neighbours, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.
How did we get here?
We've been making history and bringing our world closer together for well over 100 years.
Since forming in 1905, we've taken on some of the world's toughest challenges and helped a wide range of international and service organizations.
