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.

Club News
Matu Booth from Nga Manu Nature Reserve spoke to the Club about the many exciting developments at one of Kapiti's finest attractions. Nga Manu has certainly suffered a drop in numbers due to Covid-19 but about two thirds of visitors have always been Kiwis who have been very supportive over the past year. Whilst the reserve has managed to contain pests and preserve wetlands, one of the biggest challenges facing Nga Manu is the surrounding and ever encroaching residential developments draw on the water table and cats.
Nga Manuis run by both paid staff and volunteers.  There is always need for volunteers so if you are keen to help out, contact Matt at Nga Manu directly.
A thank you from Kaleb, the first of nine students selected to undertake self development programmes at either Outward Bound or Spirit of Adventure, where they push the boundaries to find what they are capable of. The funds to enable their adventures were raised by Kapiti Rotary, the students themselves and by the programme providers. Feedback like this makes all the hard work fundraising so worthwhile. Evidently Kaleb is going to remember this experience for along time.
Congratulations and our very best wishes Kaleb. You will be always welcome at Rotary-we're here to help you on your ongoing journey of you want.
"I don't even know where to start with the amount of cool stuff we got up to at Outward Bound! But I'd just like to say thank you sooooo much for helping send me on the journey of a lifetime!!! I really appreciate it and I will never forget those experiences! I met so many interesting and amazing people who I will likely stay in touch with for the rest of my life! The past 3 weeks have been the most challenging, action-packed, enjoyable, happy, exciting moments of my entire life!..

Tony Annanadale, (President) and Cliff Daly (Projects Manager) from the MenzShed gave an interesting and inspirational account of the development of the Menz Shed Kapiti (Waikanae Beach) into one of the largest and most successful clubs in New Zealand, with 140 members of which at least 40 regularly turnout on Tuesdays and Thursdays at their property at Waikanae Beach.
