The Four Way Test “of what we think, say and do” has been a credo of Rotary International’s since the 1940’s and is repeated at each meeting of the more than 36,000 clubs world wide and is presented as an ethical code for use by high school and college students who are members of Interact(high school) and Rotaract(college age). Never changed, the 24 word test remains today as a central part of the permanent Rotary structure and is held as the standard by which all behavior should be measured. Rotary International is the only organization with such a credo, and is proud that the exact wording is used as the basis for the judicial system of the nation of Ghana.
