Eradication of Polio

Ongoing support for Polio Eradication
Since 1988 when Rotary International committee to eradicate Polio we have seen a 99.9% reduction on Polio cases throughout the world, but the fight is not finished.  Polio continues to paralyse children in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria.  As long as on child is at risk all children are at risk which is why we are committed to see this effort to the very end.  Our contribution this year will help to immunise 2500 children.  For more information click on this link End Polio | My Rotary

The Rotary Club of Keilor recently donated $1500 to this Rotary Internation Project

Rotary International Victorian Primary School Recycling Project

Every child has the right to a good education, but sadly for many this is only a dream.   70,000,000 children will receive no schooling this year.   Two of the key elements needed to provide education are well equipped classrooms and the things that students need.     In Australia we are very fortunate to be able to replace items before they wear out and discard goods that would be very valuable in developing countries.       We are working with local schools and students to donate all of the reusable material they no longer require, to be given to the teachers and students who lack these resources and who deserve our help.
There are three donation areas of particular interest
•    Recycling the library books no longer require
•    End of year collection of the items students and the school no longer require
•    Recycling equipment that is being replaced
Last year the West Footscray Donations In Kind Store shipped 45 x 20’ containers of goods overseas, the cost was $220,000+ and almost all of this was funded by Rotary Clubs.    Our Club is a strong supporter of this great operation.    Much of the material being collected would have become landfill if we did not provide this much better alternative.  
Sadly unless some without help with donations for shipping there will continue to be times when we can’t collect valuable material because there is no room to store it or funds to ship.    In other states Government contributes to the shipping cost, but in Victoria we have to rely on the Community.    It only cost $4 to ship a chair so a little makes a big difference.
 If this is an area that interests you we hope that you will join with the Rotary Club of Keilor and be partners in this great project

In East Timor there are 100,000 children without desks or chairs

This school was fully equiped with donated equipment and the Rotary Club of Keilor paid for the shipping
