Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. This philosophy is embodied in the "Object of Rotary."

Rotary Clubs meet weekly to plan their activities and initiate community service projects that address today most critical issues, such as education, poverty alleviation and environmental protection, etc. The organization's dedication to this ideal is best expressed in its principal motto: "Service Above Self."

Rotary works to meet the changing needs of society, expanding its service effort to address such pressing issues as environmental degradation, illiteracy, world hunger, and children at risk.
