The Rotary Foundation seeks to promote international understanding, good will and peace in practical, realistic terms. Special Grants and grants for the Health, Hunger and Humanity (3-H) program are made throughout the year to support international charitable projects sponsored by Rotary clubs or districts. Scholarships and Group Study Exchanges are awarded annually to gifted men and women both to further their education and to hone their skills as effective ''ambassadors of good will'' in countries other than their own. Exposure to the life and customs of the study country through the guidance of Rotarian hosts and their families results in camaraderie and lasting friendships that help realize the Foundation's goal of furthering international understanding.

Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...

"We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
