Rotary aims to eradicate polio, a vaccine-preventable disease. Only two countries remain polio-endemic: Afghanistan and Pakistan. We have reduced cases by 99.9%, but we're not done yet. We must immunize every child to end polio forever.
Teachers and students of 40 schools in Bolivia will be trained on how to obtain safe drinking water and improve hygiene conditions at school. Simple and affordable technologies like Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS) will be promoted.
