Rotary International District 6910

Rotary logo

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service—in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

Rotary International District 6910 is one of three Georgia Districts and occupies the northern 49 counties of the state with a total population in excess of 2.4 million residents. District 6910 has more than 3,400 Rotarians in 70 Rotary Clubs ranging from as few as 21 members to more than 200 members.

Thanks to the generous investment in UNICEF’s nutrition programs in Guatemala made by Rotary International District 6910, UNICEF has worked to provide interventions that prevent anemia due to iron deficiencies, prevent growth retardation due to zinc deficiencies, prevent gastrointestinal infections related to deficiencies of vitamin A and other nutrients, and ensure growth monitoring.
