Former Rotary Youth Exchange student designs a backpack bed for the homeless

During Australia’s colder months, emergency shelters often fill to capacity. Many homeless people searching for a warm bed are turned away, handed a piece of cardboard and a blanket for the night.

Tony Clark, an IT entrepreneur, 1992 Rotary Youth Exchange student, and the founder of the Melbourne-based nonprofit Swags for Homeless, offers an alternative.

Three-day event provides free health care to thousands in Africa

In 1994, Marion Bunch lost her son, Jerry, to AIDS.

It was early in the U.S. AIDS epidemic, and the stigma of the disease kept her from talking about her son’s illness with anyone but family members. But three years later, Bunch recalls feeling a tap on her shoulder and hearing a voice telling her to “get up and get going.”

“It was an epiphany … that completely altered the course of my life,” she says. RI

Rotary Programs
Programs of The Rotary Foundation
 

Through Foundation grants and programs, Rotarians and other contributors can help change the world. They can finance a well for a village that lacks clean water, improve the environment, or provide scholarships to educate the next generation. The grants and programs available to Rotarians allow them to realize Rotary's humanitarian mission throughout the world, including its number-one goal of eradicating polio.
PolioPlus

To eradicate polio, Rotarians have mobilized by the hundreds of thousands. They're working to ensure that children are immunized against this crippling disease and that surveillance is strong despite the poor infrastructure, extreme poverty, and civil strife of many countries. Since the PolioPlus program's inception in 1985, more than two billion children have received the oral polio vaccine.

Rotary's US$200 Million Challenge is the Rotary Foundation's response to the two grants totaling $355 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help eradicate polio. Every dollar given to PolioPlus will be counted toward the $200 million match, which must be completed by 30 June 2012.

What is Rotary? Have you ever struggled with an answer to that question? You’re not alone. How do you describe an organization that is so many things to so many different people? It turns out that we had the answer all along.

How Your Gift to The Rotary Foundation Changes Lives

Leonor Fraser and other members of her Rotary club arrived in Masaya, Nicaragua, ready to deliver shoes to the elementary schoolchildren and play with them.
 

It immediately became apparent that the school, located near a diesel plant, had bigger problems. The plant emitted pollutants into the air, which made the children and teachers lethargic, and the cracked building had no sanitation facilities. Fraser had difficulty breathing during her visit.

Knowing how to read and write can transform a person's life. These basic skills, which so many of us take for granted, can mean a job, an income, and hope for a better future for those who are struggling to break the cycle of poverty. That's why Rotary has focused on promoting literacy for more than two decades, and why The Rotary Foundation has provided millions of dollars to support literacy projects.

Offor – who worked his way up to become executive vice chair of the Chrome Group, a multibillion-dollar oil and gas conglomerate, and who founded the Sir Emeka Offor Foundation, whose mission is to create economic opportunities in Nigeria’s poor communities – prefers to let his work and philanthropy speak for him. And with his most recent gift of $1 million to PolioPlus, Offor adds another achievement to his story: He is Africa’s single largest donor to Rotary.

    Rotarians Must Have Integrity -
    RI

    My fellow Rotarians:

    Ihave always thought it important to bear in mind that Rotary is avoluntary organization, composed of people who are all themselvesleaders. When addressing such an audience, I have never thought itfitting to exhort or demand. Every Rotary club is and must beautonomous: The leadership of Rotary International exists not tocontrol, but to motivate and guide.

    And so when we inRotary speak about the importance of membership, I believe it of theutmost importance to bear in mind that the primary experience ofRotary, for the overwhelming majority of Rotarians, is of the club: ofclub meetings, club projects, and fellow club members.

    Rotary Classification talk
    A "Classification" describes the principal activity of the company or business with which a Rotarian is connected. For example, a police officer could be classified as "law enforcement", a school principal as "public education". The reason for a classification is to ensure a well-balanced club  with members of many vocations.

    One of Rotary's four avenues of service is "vocational service", whereby we honour and respect our individual contributions to our community through our vocations. New members are given the opportunity to share their vocation by giving a classification talk.
