There are Five Avenues of Service in Rotary. Any way is the right way.
FLIDS - Core Values of Rotary International
Rotary’s 5 Core values which represent the guiding principles of our organisation’s culture, including what guides members’ priorities and actions within the organisation.
Values are an increasingly important component in strategic planning because they drive the intent and direction of the organisation’s leadership.
Our Values are what our community see in a Rotarian!
F- Fellowship is about making new friends in Rotary and having fun.
We believe that grouped efforts combine to benefit all of humanity. Strength in numbers provides more access to resources and expands our overall perspective of the world. The power of combined efforts knows no limitation, multiplies resources, and broadens our lives and perspectives.
Fellowship generates greater tolerance of others and transcends all boundaries, including those of race, gender, and nationality.
L- Leadership - to discover your potential to give guidance and direction and discovering your own leadership’s skills.
We are a community of leaders. We believe in the development and nurturing of current and future leaders in our community. As a global fellowship, we hold leadership qualities in the highest regard amongst Rotarians, as we strive to implement our core values throughout the world.
I - Integrity the guiding principles of the Four-way Test: of the things we think, say or do: is it the Truth, is it Fair to all concerned, will it build Goodwill, and better
Friendship, and will it be Beneficial to all concerned.
Accountability, honesty, and ethics are the backbone of our organization and something we expect from each of our leaders and members. We encourage all members to adhere to the highest standards in both professional and personal relationships with others. Fairness and respect are grounded in The Four-Way Test and we must conscientiously steward the resources entrusted to us.
D - Diversity is the variety of the members in Rotary that make the Club work.
We believe Rotary unifies all people internationally behind the ideal of service. We believe that, in the pursuit of service to others, we can accomplish international unity. Through the diversity of our members, our organization is able to broaden the scope of the activities, programs, and service we can provide. We encourage a diverse community within the individual clubs that are part of Rotary International.
S - Service - Five Avenues of Service are Club, Vocational, Community, International and Youth that we as members, fall into within the Club.
We believe that peace comes from understanding our world, and that peace is a bi-product of service activities and our programs. Service is one of the main elements of our mission and the initiatives we pursue within each of our individual clubs fuels the culture of service throughout our organization that provides unparalleled satisfaction for those who serve.
Happy International Day of Peace!
