Meeting: How the Rotary Foundation uses your donation to support projects around the world (July 26 to August 1, 2017)
President's Message - Courtlin Holt-Nguyen 2017-18
Aloha Rotary E-Club of Hawaii Ohana,
New Rotarians often wonder how the Rotary Foundation uses their donations to plan and accomplish projects around the world. In this week's meeting, I've included two articles from a recent edition of the Rotarian magazine that provides some background on the Rotary Foundation and some of its ongoing global projects. The Rotary Foundation is recognized as being in the top 1% of all charitable organizations in the U.S. when it comes to its transparency and commitment to accountability.
This second article highlights 20 exemplary Rotary Global grant projects that represent what a Rotary project should be, i.e. "a sustainable endeavor that aligns with one of Rotary’s areas of focus and that is designed in cooperation with the community to address a real need."
Finally, there is an interesting article about the global polio surveillance network and how it's ongoing monitoring was able to quickly detect a new case of polio in Nigera after several years without any reported cases of the disease.
