About Rotary

Rotarians are ordinary people who work together to achieve extraordinary things.

Rotary International is a volunteer organisation of business and professional people who provide humanitarian service locally and internationally. Its goal is to help build goodwill throughout communities and to promote peace and conflict resolution. Rotarians are committed to service above self.
