Promoting Peace

Rotary encourages conversations to foster understanding within and across cultures. We train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict and help refugees who have fled dangerous areas.

Fighting Disease

We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene

We support local solutions to bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away. We share our expertise with community leaders and educators to make sure our projects succeed long-term.

Saving mothers and children

Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.

Rotary – I’ll Take Action


While there remains a potential for a fatigued, paralyzed, Polio positive case in the world… I’ll take action to eradicate polio.

While there remains unrest due to poverty, ethnic tension, discrimination, and lack of education, I’ll take action to be a promote peace.

While there remains children and fellow human neighbors with water that contains disease and is not safe to drink… I’ll take action to provide clean, potable water.

While there remains a person with insufficient reading abilities or are in despair because of their gender in various fields, I’ll take action to support education on all levels.

While there remains hurdles and obstacles for women and their children for quality care, I’ll take action to provide them nutrition and health support.

While there remains an individual unable to support their family or themselves because of their pay, I’ll take action to find a solution to the cycles of poverty.

While the natural resources and beauty of this world is taken advantage and the future is in jeopardy, I’ll take action to protect our legacy in the environment.

When a community is stricken with hardship after a disaster and deplorable effects, I’ll take action to rebuild our fellow man’s community and hope.

This is why I take action. Why do you?
