Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Make the world a better place through service and communication. Eradicating Polio has been a goal since 1986 and Rotary is 99% there. It has been through communication with different gov't agencies around the world that made this possible.
Also, by volunteering in less fortunate areas around our community, we help close the financial and racial gap.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

End Polio Now

The Primary Cause for Rotary International is to eradicate Polio from the Earth.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

Rotary clubs and partners built 222 toilets, six rainwater collectors, seven communal handwashing stations, and 20 biosand filters. The project provided more than 1,000 people with access to proper toilet facilities and almost 600 people with a regular supply of clean water.

Population(s) Served
Adults

A person in the community in need of help is identified and assisted in some way. We have made homes wheel chair accessible, repaired homes for disabled individuals, repairs to the senior center, etc

Population(s) Served
Seniors

Many community events, such as adopting a financially struggling school, Moffett Elementary, to supply books, backpacks, and lunches for children in need. Also, we work with the Seniors, support teachers, students, the Police, and Fire Dept in the forms of scholarships and awards.

Population(s) Served
Adults

In 2008 our Board approved spending $3,000 on Micro Finance Loans through the Kiva Organization.

Our first loan was made on December 30, 2008 to a group of Bolivian women you can learn about on our website. This loan has been paid back. As money is paid back we re-loan it to another person or group. Our 2009-10 International Service Budget included another $3,000. In 2010-2011 we budgeted the same. We currently have $9,000 circulating the globe helping people start small, local businesses.

We now are participating in 145 loans and have loaned $12,350. The total amount repaid is $6,444. We have had 33 loans paid back. We have had zero defaults. You can see the details in our website under Kiva Micro Loans.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Eradicate Polio, Create access to clean water around the world, and expand educational opportunities are just some of our goals.

Our club membership is at 108 members and Rotary International has 1.2 Million members. Our physical volunteerism is the first thing that enables us to get books, equipment, and able bodied individuals on the ground to help. Also, pooling our resources and partnering with other service and gov't orgs helps identify issues and create solutions.

With a revolving budget of over $100,000 and 108 people ready to roll up our sleeves, we regularly achieve amazing things. We have built homes and delivered food to the poor, created self sustaining schools in the poorest places in the world, gave disabled people wheelchairs, and so much more.

We have dug wells in Mali and more will be built. We continue to contribute to the End Polio Now program. Every year we pass out about $40,000 away in scholarships. This year will be closer to $50,000. We will continue to support Moffett Elementary in a variety of ways, including bringing school supplies and lunches to their students.
