International Signature Project

Rotary members have been working hard to eradicate polio since 1979. In close to four decades, Rotary has contributed more than USD 1.5 billion and countless man hours to protect more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries from polio.
“The world will not be where it is without Rotary and it won’t get where it needs to go without Rotary.” – Bill Gates

In 1988, 125 countries had polio, as a result of our effort, only 3 countries still have polio in 2017. This is a battle and we are winning. Soon, polio will be completely eradicated from the surface of the earth, and that will be the greatest achievement & proudest moment for Rotary.
