Growing Local Economies: Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 a day. Rotary members are passionate about providing sustainable solutions to poverty. Our members and our foundation work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.We provide training and access to well-paying jobs and financial management institutions. We create opportunities to help individuals and communities thrive financially and socially. For example, agricultural opportunities and human rights. 

Another reason to join Mayfield Rotary. Disaster Response: With more than 1.2 million members worldwide, Rotarians are on the ground and ready to take action to help communities recover when disasters strike. For example Immediate response: Our local clubs and partners immediately offer helping hands and supplies. 

Fighting Disease. We believe good health care is everyone’s right. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care. We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases. Rotary members have hundreds of health projects underway around the world at any given time. 

Supporting Education: More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. That’s 17 percent of the world’s adult population. Rotary members fight adult illiteracy by working with local advocates to offer community literacy programs. 
Helping mothers and children: Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger. Clubs in Japan and Brazil used a Rotary Foundation global grant to equip a hospital with lifesaving neonatal equipment. 
 Rotary’s four roles in promoting peace: Rotary and its members are: Practicioners, Educators, Mediators, Advocates. In Nigeria, a university president and Rotary Club fight Boko Haram by educating and feeding victims

HEAL International was conceived from a vision of vibrant, healthy communities that:
 
- provides support to meet the basic needs of children, youth and families.
 
-promotes inclusion to enable all members to participate actively in social, economic, cultural and political life.
 
-promotes opportunities for the lifelong acquisition of knowledge and skills by all members.
Clean water: Rotary clubs partnered with local organizations to install a rainwater harvesting and distribution centre for 4,000 people in Madan, India. They also delivered training programs for women in the community and students in 35 schools.  
Continuing Education: Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep one informed about what is going on in the community, nation and world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers and a variety of timely topics. 
Public Speaking Skills: Many individuals who join Rotary were afraid to speak in public. Rotary develops confidence and skills in public communications and the opportunity to practice and perfect these skills.

The Opportunity to Serve: Rotary is a service club. Its business is mankind. Its product is service. Rotarians provide community service to both local and international communities. This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do something for somebody else and to sense the self-fulfilment that comes in the process and return of that satisfaction to one’s own life. It is richly rewarding. 

The Absence of an “Official Creed”: Rotary has no secret handshake, no secret policy, no official creed, no secret meeting or rituals. It is an open society of men and women who simple believe in helping others. 

Cultural Awareness: Around the world, practically every religion, country, culture, race, creed, political persuasion, language, color and ethnic identity is represented among members of Rotary. Rotary is a cross-section of the world's most prominent citizens who are aware of their cultures and have developed a love of working with people everywhere. They become better citizens of their countries in the process. 

Prestige: Rotary members are prominent people: leaders of business, the professions, art, government, sports, military, religion, and all disciplines. Rotary is the oldest and most prestigious service club in the world. Its ranks include executives, managers, and professionals - people who make decisions and influence policy.
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
