Rotary clubs engage in service projects in thousands of communities all over the world. Rotary club members form a diverse, global network of volunteers united through a common commitment to the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through service.
Representing a cross-section of professionals and business leaders in their local communities, Rotary club members tend to be knowledgeable about the local needs, priorities, customs, and resources that contribute to effective service projects. Effective projects, however, require more than an understanding of the community. They also depend on the club’s ability to effectively evaluate the community’s needs, plan relevant projects, and manage project resources.
