Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. Having participated in Rotary for a number of years, it has come into its own throughout the pandemic and the foot has only pressed harder on the pedal on the move out of it. Whilst there is a myth that Rotary is for male professionals of a certain age who all sit round for a weekly meal, it really isn’t all that.
We are a groups of people loosely based on geographical locations, who want to do good for their communities, centered around 7 key themes:
- Promote peace
- Fight disease
- Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
- Save mothers and children
- Support education
- Grow local economies
- Protect the environment
We see differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.
We think differently: We apply leadership and expertise to social issues — and find unique solutions.
We act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance create lasting change.
We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.
