Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. There are 33,000 Rotary clubs clustered in Districts in more than 200 countries and geographical areas under the umbrella of Rotary International (RI).
Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, 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. Rotary is essentially a grassroots organisation, with most of its service efforts being carried out at the club level.
The district and international structure is designed to support clubs and help them provide more service in their local communities and abroad.
