It is said that every minute of every day Rotary will touch the lives of millions somewhere in the world.
By combining their skills and resources, members of Rotary are able to make a real contribution to the lives of others.
In local communities alone, each club raises tens of thousands of pounds for community projects and local charities, often more. Members also volunteer their time - supervising community events, running a host of projects aimed at promoting the achievements of young people, coordinating educational programmes, and supporting local businesses.
Because Rotary is found in more than 200 countries and regions worldwide, we are in the unique position of being able to reach people in need all over the planet, from running life-changing projects in developing countries to making an immediate response to disaster-hit regions.
In addition, Rotary also has its own charity - The Rotary Foundation - which funds the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty throughout the world.
