W hat would it take to change the world?
Rotary International is the world’s first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
Thought about joining us?
For most people, being a Rotarian means being a member of a club in their local neighbourhood, or business community. The same reasons for people joining 100 years ago exist today – a desire to help people, give something back to their neighbourhoods and to make new friendships among likeminded people. Some people think about it. In D9910 more than 1300 people are doing it.
The women and men who become Rotarians agree to the principles of the following Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do:
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Thought about helping our work?
We always need a helping hand from people who may have the money, but not the time to give. When Fiji was hit by floods, it was the $2 and $5 donations, often from families with the least to spare, that added up to help the villagers cope and then rebuild their lives.
On the global front, for one example the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has entrusted Rotary with US$355 million for its End Polio project with UNICEF and WHO.
