THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES OF ROTARY

These principles have been developed over the years to provide Rotarians with a strong common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world.

    FEBRUARY IS PEACE AND CONFLICT PREVENTION/RESOLUTION MONTH

    Conflict and violence displaced more than 68 million people in the past year, and half of those are children.

    Rotary refuses to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.

    Through our service projects, peace fellowships, and scholarships, our members are taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

    Saving lives in Ghana

    What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

    India celebrates three years without polio

    Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
