What We Do

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility
to take action on our world’s most persistent issues.

Rotary’s 46,000+ clubs all work together to:

> Promote peace;
> Fight disease;
> Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene;
> Save mothers and children;
> Support education;
> Grow local economies; and
> Protect the environment.Rotary’s

We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Polio Plus

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 45 years.
By working together with our partners, governments, and communities around the world, we’ve immunized over 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.
Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we’ve reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
