Guiding Principles
Of the things we think, say or do: 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 Rotary Club of Sherwood Park is organized into five divisions to carry out the Five Avenues of Service which form the foundation of Rotary's work.  Our club, vocational, community, international, and youth service committees encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.  All members ensure that the focus of their work is Service Above Self.

One! International's goal is to teach literacy, numeracy and life skills to children living on the streets of Mumbai, India and surrounding areas by providing educational services and also associated social welfare services such as nutrition, health care, medicine, housing support and micro finance. 
 
One! International was founded by local resident, Tania Spilchen, who first went to Mumbai to work at an internet agency on an exchange program. During this time she met and bonded with children living in the streets whom she claims stole her heart.  Other local volunteers, like Paragi Shah, help support this important charity by telling the One! story and organizing fundraising events. 
 
Our club is a proud sponsor of One! International.  Our donation to the Step-Sponsorship program will help to cover the operational costs of a single step classroom.   For more information on how your company can support this program visit the One! International website.
