Volunteer polio vaccinator killed in Pakistan
Rotary News 22 October 2012

Here is a statement from Rotary's International PolioPlus Committee Chair Robert S. Scott concerning a volunteer vaccinator who died during the recent National Immunization Days in Pakistan: “On behalf of Rotary’s International PolioPlus Committee, I would like to express our sincerest condolences on the death of the Pakistani volunteer vaccinator killed 16 October in Quetta, Pakistan. “We have learned that on the afternoon of 16 October, this young man was shot and killed during the country’s National Immunization Days for polio. He was not a Rotarian. “The victim’s survivors will be supported through the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s Polio Heroes Fund. This fund is administered by the CDC Foundation and heavily supported by Rotary. “Rotary and our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative are deeply saddened by this incident, which further underscores the heroic efforts of more than 200,000 Pakistani volunteers and health workers, all of whom work under difficult and sometimes dangerous conditions to protect children from the devastating effects of polio.”

Outreach centers keep Honduran youth off the street
Rotarians from seven clubs in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa joined together to fund two outreach centers for young people in some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city. The centers are thriving because of startup funding from Rotary clubs and additional support from Regional Youth Alliance, a project of USAID, and the nonprofit Save the Children. They opened in 2009 in Buenas Nuevas and Villafranca, which have a combined population of 22,000. Rotarians chose these locations because they are some of the poorest areas in the city. “These two neighborhoods are high-risk, where gangs and drug organizations work,” says Rotarian Guillermo Enrique Valle, who coordinated the project for the Rotary clubs of Tegucigalpa and the Rotary Action Group for Population Growth and Sustainable Development. “For young people, instead of going to school or learning vocational training, they are recruited into gangs and drugs -- it’s a vicious cycle which is hard to leave.” Save the Children operates the centers, which are open to children and young adults ages 10 to 29. They aim to prevent violence and provide a safe atmosphere for youth to do their homework, play sports, and learn a skill. Tutoring and vocational training range from carpentry to electrical services to computer maintenance. “A lot of them are already out of school; they have been left behind,” says Valle, past president of the Rotary Club of Tegucigalpa. “The idea is to help them out with jobs before they become delinquents and give them a possibility of a future.” Rotarians chose Save the Children to run the centers, which have been so successful that Save the Children has opened two additional centers on its own.
