About Rotary

Rotary is a worldwide volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders, united to help build goodwill and peace through humanitarian service.   More than 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries and territories conduct projects to address today’s challenges at home and abroad.


Rotary’s flagship program for more than two decades has been PolioPlus. Partnering with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and others, PolioPlus is close to helping eradicate this disease from the planet. Rotarians will have donated more than $1 billion toward this humanitarian and public health initiative.


Rotarians support humanitarian projects through The Rotary Foundation, the charitable branch of Rotary International. Individual clubs can leverage their own funds with matching grants to support projects at home or abroad.

Projects focus on six areas: clean water and sanitation, maternal and child health, disease prevention and treatment, community and economic development, basic education and literacy, peace and conflict prevention/resolution.


Rotary provides an extraordinary network of talent, financial resources, and collaboration to accomplish humanitarian goals—including RotaryforNorthernTanzania.
