How does Rotary work?


The Rotary way is to recognise a need, marshal resources, and implement a solution in the most effective way, calling on the skills and networking abilities of club members.

In fact, Rotary invented business networking as a means of getting things done in the community. It came out of a meeting between Paul Harris and three business friends - a merchant, an engineer and a coal dealer - to take a stand against the corruption and poor business ethics of the day. They soon realised that they could use their networks to help the community, and the service club ethic was born. Today, Rotary remains the world's largest business networking organisation but puts "Service Above Self".
