Rotary's Areas of Focus

For more than 100 years, Rotarians have joined together from all continents, cultures, and industries to take action in our communities and around the world.  With a commitment to achieving lasting change, Rotarians work together to empower youth, enhance health, promote peace, and most importantly, advance the community.  While Rotarians can serve in countless ways, Rotary has focused it efforts in six areas, which reflect some of the most critical and widespread humanitarian needs:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
