A Closer Look at Development: Rotary International

Neighbors, friends and community leaders who come together. That is what distinguishes Rotarians from other global humanitarian organizations. Rotary International is based on 1.2 million people creating a positive and lasting change in communities around the world.

Rotaries Mission: End Polio

Rotary Clubs around the world have been a ­standard-bearer of this mission for more than one hundred years. Throughout this time business leaders and politicians have been networking while raising funds. In the last twenty years, its focus has been to end Polio. Every member of their community is working tirelessly within that community to solve this challenge. Therefore, Rotary International is most known as the organization working tremendously hard to free the world of Polio. On six continents of the world, Rotarians work locally to carry forward Rotary’s mission to stop this horrible disease.

The incidence of the disease has been cut by 99 percent since the campaign began in 1988 when about 350,000 cases a year were recorded. The number of cases recorded in 2015 was only 74 according to the WHO. The global effort to eradicate polio did suffer repeated setbacks but the organization is determined to take this fight a step further. more than six billion dollars have been spent in the last decades, and now the remaining places on earth where polio still exists are Pakistan, Nigeria, and Afghanistan. 

“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the resulsts it achieves.”

Paul P. Harris (Attorney in Chicago)

Once polio is eradicated, the world can proudly celebrate the delivery of one of its best global health goals in the history of mankind. All people will benefit equally wherever they live. And the most important thing is that no child will have to suffer from the horrible effects of lifelong polio-paralysis anymore.
