International Programs target improvement of developing countries’ infrastructures, education and health services. Edinburg Rotary’s assistance to the General Hospital of Reynosa, Mexico | Casa Amparo Orphanage & Casa Hogar Mami Orphanage both in Reynosa, Mexico | Guadalajara Adopt-a-Clinic | Days for Girls Hygiene Packets which are distributed to third world countries | Edinburgh, Scotland’s Girls’ Toilet Project building toilets specifically for girls living in India are good examples.

The Rotary Foundation’s world-wide efforts include the literacy and numeracy programs designed to educate those in developing countries to ensure that capable human resources are available for sustainable economic development. These efforts also include relief from natural disasters such as tsunamis and hurricanes.

Among the most important of the International Projects is PolioPlus, which seeks to eradicate the polio virus from the world. Rotary, along with our partners has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

In addition, Rotary Foundation Programs empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

We are very grateful to those area businesses that have sponsored CajunFest in the past and we hope you will consider assisting us in the future. Join us in making our community and world a safer place.
