  • 79. ROTARY Facilitating Goodwill, Peace & Positive Change in the World One Project at a Time “As Rotarians we must accept responsibility to address the problems faced by our community and other communities around the world. Rotary does not ask us to become heroes or do the impossible. Rotary is made up of ordinary people inclined to give selflessly. By giving a little of our time, a little of our goodwill and a little of our knowledge and expertise, Rotarians can make a difference. It may not be possible for us to wipe away all the tears in the world, but we can surely try.” Ajit Arom DG 3240 India
