Causes We Support

Fighting Disease

We believe good health care is everyone’s right. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care.

 
Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

Protecting The Environment

Rotary shares an interest in protecting our common legacy: the environment. We are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment. Rotary members are tackling environmental issues the way they always do: coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy and planning for the future.

Community Service

Rotarians believe in building resilient communities. We commit our time, energy, and a passion to improving the lives of others.  Whether it's a simple task like sorting food at a food bank, or a complex project like organizing a large fundraising event, Rotarians take an an active role in helping those throughout their community. Rotarians truly believe in 'Service above Self".  

Education

Rotary's support of education spans from bursaries to local high school students, to scholarships to Peace Fellows, to establishing and fund schools in the developing world and more.  We believe that universal education is an essential element of peace and prosperity. We develop and fund educational programs that give people the opportunity to reach their full potential.    

Providing Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

When people have access to clean water and sanitation, waterborne diseases decrease, children stay healthier and attend school more regularly, and mothers can spend less time carrying water and more time helping their families. 
 
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.
 

Youth Leadership

Rotary's commitment to developing tomorrow's leaders can be seen in its many youth programs.  Rotary's Youth Exchange Program, Rotary's Youth Leadership Awards, Camp Enterprise and INTERACT are leading examples of how Rotarians prioritize the importance of developing young leader in our local communities.

Promoting Peace

Today, over 70 million people are displaced as a result of conflict, violence, persecution, and human rights violations. Half of them are children.
 
We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts. 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

Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.

Growing Local Economies

Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 a day. Rotary members are passionate about providing sustainable solutions to poverty. Our members and our foundation work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.
We provide training and access to well-paying jobs and financial management institutions.
