What is Rotary?

Rotary is a service organisation with the motto “Service above Self”. A very simple yet powerful statement.

The great mathematician and philosopher Albert Einstein said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” 

The famous US civil rights activist, Martin Luther King Jr. stated “Life's most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?”

The great Mahatma Gandhi, liberator of nations, said “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

President John F Kennedy in January 1961 at his inauguration challenged the world, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country”

And Mother Teresa, helper of millions around the world, that tiny, giant of a woman said “Love cannot remain by itself -- it has no meaning.  Love has to be put into action, and that action is service”.

Here is a short video that outlines what it means to be a member of Rotary:
