The Youth Exchange committee is seeking help to update our website and keep things current. Someone out there must be good with websites...  It's not a huge commitment, but someone needs to take time to see how it works, update it and then keep dates, names, happenings current.
 
For more information on this, please contact Vera Sosnowski at veraski@yahoo.com
 
 
Foundation Minute for Week of March 27th
A PolioPlus update:  Children in the three endemic countries of Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan where testing shows the virus is present are continuing to be inoculated.  400 million children in 60 counties are also being inoculated where there hasn’t had a recent outbreak, but testing samples show that the virus is present in certain areas of the country.  As all of us know, Polio is an incurable virus and inoculation leading to eradication is the only way to rid the world of this virus, and progress is being made every single day. 
 
The current “campaign” to eradicate polio is scheduled to end in 2020 following the three year waiting requirement imposed by the World Health Organization,  if the last reported case is in 2017.     So far we are on track.  But the final weeks, months and years of this campaign are very expensive and we need your continued advocacy as well as district and club fund raising, if we are to honor the commitment Rotary has made more than three decades ago. 
 
To date – March 17 - there has been only 4 cases reported in the world.  Your contribution to the Polioplus has enabled this to happen. Thank you.  
 
Needed DDF Support: The Rotary Club of Tunis Golfe New Generation in Tunisia is seeking DDF funding for a project that aims initially to provide employment to 15% of women in this region by creating a weaving workshop of traditional and decorative Tunisian's carpets.  Contact leithkallel@gmail.com for more information.
