Rotary in Action

Rotarians and Rotaractors worldwide unite in service to improve communities near and far. Together, we promote peace; provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene; support education; fight disease; save mothers and children; grow local economies; protect the environment; provide disaster relief; and eradicate polio. This work takes commitment, knowledge, leadership, and above all, determination to take action.

We are guided by our Action Plan, which reinforces our vision, charts our future, and provides a strategy to steer us toward success. Our plan has four strategic priorities: increase our impact, expand our reach, enhance participant engagement, and increase our ability to adapt. Through this lens, we improve lives through service projects, community outreach, and personal and professional growth.

Rotary is about the power to connect, partner, and create change. Our work is methodical and steady, generating long-term results, like our decades-long commitment to eradicate polio. And when urgent needs arise, Rotarians respond — whether it’s by providing food and shelter after disasters or getting protective equipment to health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
