Rotary Connects the World

Building connections, friendships, and unforgettable experiences across the world

Rotary International unites more than 1,000,000 people taking action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. Whether its immunizing more than 2.5 billion children in the fight to eradicate polio, empowering entrepreneurs with microloans and mentorship in Africa, or providing clean water to schoolchildren in developing countries, Rotary International is at the forefront of meaningful action and lasting change.

Taking Action Locally & Globally

Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.

In addition to the serving the Downtown Los Angeles Community, our members design and lead initiatives that make sustainable impacts around the world. To date, our members have improved the lives of more than 1,500 schoolchildren and community members in Kenya through the funding and development of clean water sources, provided STEM education services to thousands of students in South Africa, and funded the development of a fair-trade gold mine that provides an African community with hundreds of sustainable jobs.
