World Community Service projects address six areas of focus identified by Rotary International as critical humanitarian issues and needs:
1.    Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
2.    Disease prevention and treatment
3.    Water and sanitation
4.    Maternal and child health
5.    Basic education and literacy
6.    Economic and community development

These six areas align Rotary with other international development efforts and strategically further the Foundation's mission : to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
