What is Rotary?

Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas. These are dedicated people, men and women from business and professions, who share a common interest in helping others.

Founded in Chicago in 1905 as the world's first service organisation, Rotary quickly expanded around the globe. Rotary now is made up of nearly 33,000 clubs in 200 countries with more than 1.2 million members..

Rotary Club members are business and professional leaders who volunteer in their communities, encourage high ethical standards and carry out humanitarian projects to address issues such as poverty, health, hunger, education and the environment.
