Ro­tary’s main ob­jec­tive is ser­vice – in the com­mu­nity, in the work­place, and around the globe. The 1.2 mil­lion Ro­tar­i­ans who make up more than 34,000 Ro­tary clubs in nearly ev­ery coun­try in the world share a ded­i­ca­tion to the ideal of Ser­vice Above Self. Ro­tary clubs are open to peo­ple of all cul­tures and eth­nic­i­ties and are not af­fil­i­ated with any po­lit­i­cal or re­li­gious or­ga­ni­za­tions. Ro­tary is a world­wide or­ga­ni­za­tion of busi­ness and pro­fes­sional lead­ers that pro­vides hu­man­i­tar­ian ser­vice and en­cour­ages high eth­i­cal stan­dards in all vo­ca­tions.
