The ripples that their efforts make have a massive impact.

National Immunization Day, Jan 2020, India
In 2015, India was declared free of polio. Last year, the Indian Rotary leadership informed us that there would be no more NIDs.  However, because of the surge of new polio cases in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Government has decided to hold ONE NID in 2020.  We expect this may be one of the last times a Rotarian can participate in an Indian polio NID. 
Travel to Delhi, India, where you will participate in the polio NID activities and attend other related Rotary events.  This trip also includes travel to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal, and Jaipur to visit the famous Rotary Jaipur Limb factory.
Psst...wanna know a secret?
The best-kept secret for expanding your learning and development is The Learning Centre on the RI website.  It is an amazing tool and resource to increase your knowledge about Rotary whether you are a new member or a seasoned veteran.  A great way for a quick refresher on Polio Plus in advance of Foundation month.
This Rotary Training Resource is full of Learning & Development material, especially in the Learning Centre. There are now more than 450 individual courses available for Rotarians to access and learn from in the comfort of their home and when the time works best for them. Check out the Course Catalogue for all the great modules they have.
