      What is Rotary?

Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Rotary is the worlds first service club. It was founded in Chicago Illinois USA on 23 February 1905.

Rotary is some 1.2 million service-minded men and women belonging to over 29,000 clubs in virtually every nation of the world.

Rotarians meet weekly for fellowship and interesting and informative programs dealing with topics of local and global importance. Membership is by invitation and reflects a wide cross-section of community representation.

Rotarians plan and carry out a remarkable variety of humanitarian, educational and cultural exchange programs that touch peoples lives in their local communities and our world community.

Rotary is the Rotary Foundation, which each year provides some US $60 million for international scholarships, cultural exchanges and humanitarian projects, large and small that improve the quality of life for millions of people.

Rotary is Polio-Plus, Rotary's commitment to work with national and international health organizations on the goal of polio eradication by the year 2005, Rotary's 100th anniversary. More than one half billion children in developing nations have been immunised against polio through Polio-Plus grants.

After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is

needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Your contribution will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates

Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to

infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.
