Rotary in the Samford Valley

  • Is it the truth?  
  • Is it fair to all concerned? 
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships?  
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

The Four-Way Test is a simple but profound statement by which all Rotarians live: Of the things we think, say or do. 

Rotary is a service organisation, with many programs and projects, ranging from huge international initiatives like 3H and Polio Plus to district and local community fund-raising, donations and working bees. The large and international programs are administered through the Rotary Foundation and achieve tremendous results. However, great emphasis is placed on the development of friendship, particularly in our small community of Samford Valley. 

Rotary Areas of Focus

The 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, and we have a proven record of success in addressing them:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
