More about Rotary

Misioneros del Camino, an orphanage in Sumpango, Guatemala, is a project of the Rotary Club of Guatemala Sur. The facility received a well with help from The Rotary Foundation and the Rotary Club of Northbrook, Illinois, USA, and has been able to expand by building dorms and a neurological clinic. Members of the Guatemala Sur club visit the children and the local Rotary Community Corps, which helps apply the club's resources to the needs of the nearby community.


Maybe you’ve seen a need in your own community and wondered how you could help. Maybe you want to use your professional skills to help others — or even learn new skills. Maybe you’re seeking connections with other service-minded professionals in your community or abroad.

Whatever your reason, learning about and joining Rotary can help you achieve these goals, and so much more.

All clubs around the world use the four way test as a cornerstone of all action.  Below is the bilingual version our club uses.

The Four-Way Test

1. Is it the truth?
Shi zhende ma?

2. Is it fair to all concerned?
Shi gong ping de ma?

3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Shi shan yi de – bing cu jin you yi ma?
是善意的 – 并促进友谊吗?

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Shi dui da jia you li ma?

The Four Way Test is used around the world and has been translated into many languages.

This set of questions is one of the hallmarks of Rotary. Its four brief questions are not based on culture or religion. Instead, they are a simple checklist for ethical behavior. They transcend generations and national borders.
