Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change.

Together, we see a world where people unite to create lasting change across the globe.

A new Rotary year always gives us an opportunity for introspection and self-appraisal. We chose our District’s rallying cry of ‘Visionaries’ this year to help us overcome the challenges ahead. This rallying cry complements our theme for the year, ‘Serve to Change Lives’. Can we chart a course of growing Rotary rather than crises that threaten our clubs and district?
Our core values are Integrity, Fellowship, Service, Diversity and Leadership. These make up who we are and we must live these values together with the Four-Way Test. If we do not, then we would have sounded the death knell for our District.
Our new Rotary year resolution must therefore be hinged on the need to re-energise ourselves with this test. It is time to do the right things; time to accept that we may have been wrong in our past actions; time to seek and offer forgiveness to one another; and time to put our District first before ourselves. After all, are we all not volunteers? Is our vision statement not that, ‘Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves’?
- Okey Okonkwo (District Governor)

Rotary's 7 AREAS OF FOCUS:

Rotary is dedicated to seven areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

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.

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.

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.

Supporting education

More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

Supporting the Environment

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

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.

Growing local economies

We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old. We also strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.
