Rotary's 7 Areas Of Focus

Rotary is dedicated to seven areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

Causes We Support

Ending Polio

The End Polio Now cause is a global initiative aimed at eradicating the devastating disease of polio. Through widespread vaccination campaigns, public awareness, and fundraising efforts, the goal is to eliminate polio from every corner of the world. By ensuring that every child receives the polio vaccine, we can create a polio-free future for generations to come.

Together we fight to end polio.

The 4 Way Test

The Four-Way Test is Rotary’s unique approach and process to address conflicts, solve problems and make decisions to achieve desired outcomes. It can help us be more successful in reaching mutually beneficial, sustainable and scalable solutions.

Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.

It asks the following four questions: “Of the things we think, say or do:


Is it the TRUTH?


Is it FAIR to all concerned?




Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
