Rotary supports investments in people to create measurable and enduring economic improvement in their lives and communities.
The Rotary Foundation enables Rotarians to invest in people by creating sustainable, measurable and long term economic improvements in their communities and livelihoods by:
  • Building the capacity of entrepreneurs, community leaders, local organizations, and community networks to support economic development in impoverished communities;
  • Developing opportunities for productive work;
  • Reducing poverty in under-served; and 
  • Supporting studies for career-minded professionals related to economic and community development.
