This year’s theme from our new Rotary International President, Ravi Ravindran encourages all Rotarians to “Be A Gift to the World”. To use our talents, expertise and leadership to transform the lives of others.

 

From supporting local food pantries to providing clean water in remote villages, Rotary clubs join forces to carry out impactful and sustainable projects at home and abroad. And Rotary members are often both first responders and re-builders when major disasters strike, because Rotary clubs are present in every corner of the world.

Rotarians here in District 7070, again this year, will assist RI President Ravi Ravindran to oversee Rotary’s top humanitarian goal, undertaken in 1985, of a polio-free world. Less than 370 polio cases were confirmed worldwide in 2014, which is a reduction of more than 99.9% from the 1980’s, when the world saw about 1,000 cases per day. We are “this close”.

Rotarians are passionate about giving a hand up to those in need at home and around the world. The backbone of our organization is fellowship and compassion. To find out how you can turn your passion for service into a reality, please contact us to find a Rotary club near you.

  Ghandi said: “Be the change that you want to see in the world”. For me, as District Governor, that quote     speaks to who Rotarians are and the difference that we make by doing good in the world.

2015-2016 Rotary District 7070 Governor Michael Bell.

New match arrangement could raise US$525 million for global eradication effort

LISBON, Portugal (25 June 2013) Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced an extension of their existing fundraising partnership that could generate up to US$525 million in new money for polio eradication as the global effort to end this crippling disease enters its critical endgame phase.

Under the new agreement, announced before an audience of more than 20,000 Rotary members from 160 countries gathered in Lisbon for the humanitarian group’s annual convention, the Gates Foundation will match 2 for 1 every new dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication up to $35 million per year through 2018.
