ROTARY AT A GLANCE
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to tackle
the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members from more
than 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and
international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a
polio-free world.
Rotary also offers expanded service opportunities including:
• Interact: a service organization organized and sponsored by Rotary clubs for young adults
aged 12-18. There are more than 12,300 Interact clubs in 133 countries.
• Rotaract: groups organized by Rotary clubs to promote leadership, professional development,
and service among young adults aged 18-30. There are more than 8,000 Rotaract clubs in 167
countries.
• Rotary Community Corps (RCCs): groups of non-Rotary members who work to improve
their communities. There are more than 7,500 RCCs in 80 countries, all organized and
sponsored by Rotary clubs.
Membership Snapshot
Who: Rotary brings together the kind of people who step forward to take on important issues for
local communities worldwide. Rotary members hail from a range of professional backgrounds;
doctors, artists, small business owners and executives all call themselves Rotarians. Rotary connects
these unique perspectives, and helps leverage its members’ expertise to improve lives everywhere.
Where: From Haiti and Greenland to Nigeria and Singapore, Rotary unites a truly diverse set of
leaders from across the world. Currently, the largest number of clubs comes from the United States,
India, Japan and Brazil. The fastest growing Rotary regions include Southeast Asia and Africa.
What: Rotarians contribute their time, energy and passion to sustainable, long-term projects in local
communities across the globe. Projects focus on important issues like peace and conflict resolution,
disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic education
and literacy and economic and community development.
Polio Eradication Rotary is close to eliminating the second human disease in history after
smallpox, with a 99.9 percent reduction in polio cases worldwide since 1985, when Rotary launched
its PolioPlus program. In 1988, Rotary spearheaded the creation of the Global Polio Eradication
Initiative with the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. Polio eradication remains Rotary’s top priority. To date, Rotary has contributed more
than US$1.5 billion and countless volunteer hours to help immunize more than two billion children
against polio in 122 countries. Currently, Rotary is working to raise $35 million per year through 2018
for polio eradication, which will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

For years, Rotary's commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through the Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity. To get started on a project, think broadly about how your club and its members could contribute within each avenue.

Club Service

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs. Learn about effective club service in Membership and Training.

Vocational Service

Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process. Learn more.

Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity  Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.
Learn more about community service and assessing your community.

International Service

International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

Learn more about participating in World Community Service.

Youth Services

New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLA, Rotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.

Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
