International PolioPlus Committee
PolioPlus Facts and Figures June 2018
The goal of the PolioPlus program: The goal of the PolioPlus program is the global certification of polio eradication. By eradication, the World Health Organization (WHO), the Global Commission on Certification and Rotary mean the interruption of the transmission of all polioviruses.
Rotary’s financial contribution to the polio eradication effort: By the time the world is certified polio-free, Rotary’s contributions to the global polio eradication effort will exceed US$2.2 billion, including US$985 million in matching funds from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Rotary’s contribution to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative since 1988 accounts for nearly 14% of all contributions through June 2017 and represents approximately 42% of private sector contributions. Rotary is the leading non-governmental voluntary organization contributor to the GPEI.
The Kino Rotary Club of South Tucson's 11th Annual Golf Tournament held on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at Randolph North Golf Course in Tucson, AZ raised a record $17,650 to provide Sunnyside School District, Tucson Unified School District and Indian Oasis School students with books and school supplies for kindergartners, library books for elementary school libraries, dictionaries for third graders, and Kino Rotary Character Awards for local high school students.
Thank to all sponsors, donors, and golfers for their support and belief in our mission to provide local services in the area of literacy in South Tucson and Sunnyside School District. We also work regionally and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
At a community breakfast on April 27th, 2018,  six area high school students were honored with Character Awards presented to them, their families and representatives from the faculties of their schools.
The Kino Rotary Club of South Tucson established the Spring and Fall Character Awards in 2011 to honor high school students who serve as role models in their schools and community via service to the community and modeling the Rotary Four-Way Test. For Rotary, the Four-Way Test is the cornerstone of all action.
Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
This Spring, the Awardees were Clara Lopez, Star Academy High School; Dean Friskey, Desert View High School; Citlali Galindo, Sunnyside High School; Clayton Pancho, Baboquivari High School; Liam Membrila, Pueblo High School; and Brandi “Sarrae” Barron, PPEP Tec High School’s Celestino Fernandez Learning Center.
Each honoree received a certificate of recognition and a $50 gift card. In addition, the Kino Rotary Club will donate $25 to a charity of each student’s choice.
