WHAT EXACTLY IS ROTARY?
Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.3 million business, professional, and community leaders in 200 countries, who want to make a difference in the communities in which they live. Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Clubs are non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service – in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
