End Polio Now

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

We've helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide.

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

Janis Grummitt is a social anthropologist and brain building enthusiast well known in the field of mind development and effective thinking. After 30 years of conference speaking and facilitating workshops for corporate groups, she is now taking her message about the brain to everyone.

Stuart Ayres, Chair of the Kapiti Economic Development Association gave an online presentation to members to explain KEDA's role in the economic development of Kapiti's economy.  Stuart thinks there is tremendous synergy between and KEDA and Kapiti Rotary, as we share a similar purpose -"serving our community", Kapiti's thriving business eco system and economic wellbeing.
KEDA was started by Rotary member and past President Liz Koh in 2017 to "address our economic issues and leverage our District’s assets and opportunities, to accelerate progress towards our shared vision for Kapiti" and that by 2020, KEDA would be a full blown independent economic development agency. Liz and other volunteer colleagues was concerned that there was insufficient leadership and collaboration among the business community and with the local authority and regional economic development agency. Liz & co. went on to become instrumental in the development of the district's economic development and implementation plan 2020-2023, and the formation of the independent  Economic Development Kotahitanga Board formed by the council to implement the strategy.
KEDA plays a lead role in the plan to......
