Rotary International (also known as the Rotary Club) is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organisations. We are 1.2 million Rotarian neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. At the heart of Rotary are its clubs, and its members. Clubs are supported by Rotary International, the member association and The Rotary Foundation, which converts generous donations into grants that make their way back to the clubs.
Rotary’s footprint is best exemplified by "The Rotary Effect", which creates powerful partnerships with leading organizations of the world like United Nations (www.un.org), UNICEF (www.unicef.org), UNESCO-IHE (www.unesco-ihe.org), World Health Organization (www.who.int) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (www.gatesfoundation.org), to name a few.

Traditionally, Rotary clubs have been groups of individuals that physically meet once per week—in a convenient location in a locality of their homes or work places. But in the year 2010 Rotary International has made the eClubs as permanent part of Rotary International.
