From their website:
Rotary is a worldwide network of inspired men and women who translate their passions into relevant social causes, to change lives in communities.
Made up of over 1.2 million Rotary members – known as Rotarians – in 34,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business, professional and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world – and form strong, lasting friendships in the process.
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI), as the name suggests, is the association of Rotary clubs within England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland, comprising 53,000 members – men and women of all ages and backgrounds – in 1,850 clubs.
Rotary clubs are based within local communities, with their members meeting on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking, and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others.
Rotary clubs depend on the skills, expertise and dedication of their members, who work hard to change the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.
If you would like to join the Rotary family, volunteer your time to a community project or make a donation, register your interest and your local club will contact you with details of how you can help.
