Dear Friends,


You are UNIQUE


Your Club is UNIQUE


All together we are UNITED in our UNIQUE Organisation.




A theme with two key words, which have same root, are complementary and contain within themselves the fundamentals of the Inner Wheel philosophy.


Each of us is UNIQUE, so we are all different one from each other.


This difference is based on our background: race, age, gender, physical ability, ethnicity, perental status, appearance, geographic location, personal habits, income, religion, educational background, work experience, marital status.


At each level in Inner Wheel we have this variety of members.


Our members have a clear sense of what UNITES us around the values of Service, Friendship and International Understanding.

Our differences, our diversity, will enrich our lives and the whole organization.


When members feel the strength of their different background, they are more capable of working harmoniously and engaging in actions, services, projects.


We are women from many countries, representing a rich variety of cultures, working together in a great common cause: the progress of mankind.


Inner Wheel is a UNIQUE global network of Members, who are working UNITED in all the 104 Countries, with United Nations relations, serving Human Development in caring the Children, Women, Youth; fighting every kind of violence and fostering the Peace Education. Saving the Environment and the Green planet through the Sustainability in every area.
