Rotary Clubs are service organizations. Their purpose is service to others through efforts to improve community, to promote high ethical standards in business and professional life, and to advance the cause of world peace by building bridges of knowledge and understanding among peoples of different nations.


These efforts are exerted through Four Avenues of Service:

  1. Club Service

  2. Vocational Service

  3. Community service

  4. International service


The Rotary motto is “Service above Self”. The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business and community life; maintaining high ethical standards in business and occupations; and the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peach through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
