About Us

 

Welcome to Westlake Village Sunrise

Many people have heard of Rotary, but they can’t identify what the largest international service organization in the world is all about. Rotary is an international organization of men and women whose goals are to improve communities around the world by promoting peace, preventing disease, bolstering economic development, and providing clean water and sanitation.

Many are surprised to learn that Rotary International holds one of only two Non-Governmental Agency seats at the United Nations. It is most interesting that Rotary is represented in more countries than there are countries in the United Nations. Rotary may be best known for its work to successfully help eradicate polio throughout the world. There are over 1.2 million Rotarians around the world and the Rotary organization has given away over 3 billion dollars through its Foundation to people, communities and global and local improvement efforts.
