Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. Each year, Rotary members

peace and prosperity in communities across the globe. Rotary members take action by
providing access to clean water and sanitation, supporting education, preventing and
treating disease, saving mothers and children and growing local economies.
For more than 30 years, Rotary has been the driving force in the effort to end polio
worldwide. Alongside our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we have
achieved a 99.9 percent reduction in polio cases, with less than 200 cases of wild polio
reported in 2019 compared with 350,000 a year in the late 1980s. Our members have
contributed $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect more than 3 billion
children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Today, just two countries continue
to report cases of wild poliovirus, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Rotary remains committed
to ending polio, and will raise $50 million per year, with every dollar to be matched with
two additional dollars through a matching agreement with the Bill & Melinda Gates
For 115 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world. It
started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary
Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could
exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their
communities. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings
among the offices of its members.
