About Rotary Service
Rotary International as a worldwide organization of some 1.3 million members in 33,000 clubs, in 200 countries is well described by its motto:
‘Service Above Self’.
Service is channelled through the 4 Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of all clubs’ activities. They are:
- Club Service
Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs
- Vocational Service
Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process.
- Community Service
Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.
- International Service
International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace.
