What's Rotary?

Rotary is an international membership organization made up of men and women who share a passion for and commitment to enhancing communities and improving lives across the world. Rotary clubs exist in almost every country. Our members help change lives locally and connect with other clubs to work on international projects that address today’s most pressing challenges. Membership provides an opportunity to take action and make a difference. Engaging in this kind of service is personally rewarding and creates lifelong friendships in the process.

Rotary was founded on principles that remain at the heart of the organization today. These principles reflect our core values — integrity, diversity, service, leadership, and fellowship, or friendship.

September: Basic Education and Literacy Month

 

Basic education and literacy is one of Rotary’s six areas of focus.
 
We know that basic education and literacy are essential for reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging community and economic development, and promoting peace.
 
Consider these facts:
  • If all women completed primary education, there would be 66% fewer maternal deaths.
  • A child born to a mother who can read is 50% more likely to survive past the age of five.
  • If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty, which would be equivalent to a 12% cut in world poverty.
The world is making good progress in this area. According to a 2014 United Nations Millennium Development Goals progress report, literacy rates among adults and youths are on the rise and the gender gap in literacy is narrowing. But pressing global needs remain:
  • 58 million children worldwide are out of school.
  • Even after four years of primary schooling, as many as 250 million children cannot read and write.
  • 781 million adults are illiterate.

Cheering for The Rotary Foundation

“I became a true Rotarian. It was that GSE experience. It was a defining moment. I came back and realized that the Foundation was my charity of choice and that I had to convince others that it should be theirs also.” 

The visit to a makeshift school during a Group Study Exchange in South Africa helped to change Rotarian John Tomlinson from Canada. He learned that real teaching is about the love of teaching; he also learned what it meant to be a Rotarian. As the team leader of his GSE team he was already a dedicated Rotarian but what he saw in South Africa made him not just a Rotarian but a cheerleader for the Rotary Foundation. He saw first-hand the importance of the Rotary Foundation’s programs and the impact they have on the world. Through John’s efforts and the Rotary Club of Bolton, ONT, Canada that makeshift school he visited has now benefited from two Rotary Foundation grants. Meanwhile John is busy telling everyone about The Rotary Foundation and why Every Rotarian, Every Year is his charity of choice.

 


 

Global Grants

Rotary clubs in Honduras and Pennsylvania, USA partnered together to receive a Rotary Foundation Grant to provide eye and vision care to needy people in Honduras. During a 10-day long mission, Rotarians from both clubs worked to provide a wide variety of vision services through clinics held at local schools and neighborhoods. Over 1,200 individuals were evaluated and 600 received prescription eyeglasses. A local non-governmental organization will continue to provide eyeglasses and medications to those in need. Improved eyesight can translate into improved educational or occupational opportunities, contributing greatly to improved quality of life. 

To be a Rotarian means to give of our time, talent and financial resources. Will you make that sacrifice so others may have a better life?

In 2017-18, we’ll answer the question “What is Rotary?” with RI President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

 

The heartland of America—from Montana to Texas—has people who give from the heart. This rich land still has people who are homeless, but Rotarians help build houses. This breadbasket of America still has people with food insecurities, but Rotarians serve in soup kitchens, pack backpacks, and stock food pantries. There are people who are abused, or abuse drugs and alcohol, but Rotarians work in shelters, and educate with awareness and treatment campaigns. Rotary Has Heart. Rotarians serve their communities
