With the motto “Service Above Self”, Rotary has a reputation for integrating the resources of the community to support the disadvantaged.
Its youth programs support children of all ages and serves to prepare young people for the future through enhanced nutrition and literacy, developing leadership, and providing educational and travel opportunities.
For more than a century Rotary has undertaken programs to enhance and build the Victoria community and affect conditions throughout the entire world. As a Rotarian you can mingle with 1.2 million Rotarians in more than 35,000 clubs in 130+ countries.
