BREAKOUT SESSIONS

6 Areas of Humanitarian Focus


6 areas of humanitarian focusThe work of Rotary begins in the community, and every community has its own unique needs and concerns. While we serve in countless ways, we’ve focused our efforts in six key areas to maximize our impact. These areas encompass some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian needs.

Rotary members planning new service projects are encouraged to consider these areas and the many opportunities for innovative projects within them. This publication introduces each area and suggests how Rotary clubs and districts and their service partners can address these needs both locally and internationally.



And at this year’s Rotary Uncorked conference, we are uncorking the 6 areas of focus!
