Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
The Rotary spark was kindled in Singapore in the year 1930. On the 6th June, 75 leading personalities representing 20 different nationalities met at Raffles Hotel to inaugurate the first Rotary club on this island. Six months after its inauguration, the Club received its Charter under which it now operates as Club No. 3360 on the roll of Rotary International.
