THE HISTORY AND PURPOSE OF ROTARY

Rotary is the world’s oldest service club. Founded by Paul Harris in 1905 to bring together professionals from diverse background and professions, the name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members. Rotary has always sought to found business and social relations on a code of ethics and to exchange ideas, foster friendships, and give back to the community.

Today, it is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Rotary has three interlocking parts: the clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation. Together, they work to make lasting change in communities around the world. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take build sustainable projects. Volunteers work locally, regionally, and internationally to:

  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease
  • Conserve the natural environment
  • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Save mothers and children
  • Support education
  • Grow local economies

THE ROTARY ETHIC - THE FOUR-WAY TEST

Applicable in all business and social relationships the FOUR-WAY TEST:

       "Of the things we think, say or do:

  • Is it the TRUTH?
  • Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  • Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

Support Orphans in Nepal!
RAW supports three orphanages in Nepal. Over the years we have supplied them with school clothes, school notebooks, computers, upgrades to their facilities (such as windows!), and during the Covid-19 pandemic, we paid for food that in Kathmandu was scarce and expensive.
