Latest Happening At Rotary Club Of Junagadh

RC Junagadh @ GKP Nandarkhi

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Junagadh web page. Led by a young Rtn Hitesh Gajjar, the Rotary Club of Junagadh was chartered in 1955 with 24 members – some 50 years after the formation of the world’s first Rotary Club in Chicago. At that time local businessmen joined this fledgling movement to put back something into the local community in which they earned their livings.

Today it numbers business and professional men and women from all walks of life and all ethnic groups as members. Rotary Clubs exist in most countries of the world. Our aims have broadened to offer help and support to people at home and abroad.

Junagadh Rotary Club local projects over the years have included support for the elderly; for the disabled; for children in need; for the varied work of well known Hospitals; for local schools; free eye testing camps in the community, helping blind children by various ways, among many other local projects.

 Internationally the Rotary Club has supported small and large projects which alleviate suffering at the time of International disasters, provision of clean drinking water, basic library facilities and provision of small fishing boats and livestock to replace those lost in such disasters as the Tsunami in 2004, Typhoon Sidr, Bangladesh in 2007 and the Haiti Earthquake in 2010. After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Reaching the ultimate goal of a polio-free world presents ongoing challenges, not the least of which is a US$535 million funding gap through 2012. Of course, Rotary alone can't fill this gap, but continued Rotarian advocacy for government support can help enormously. As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

As a member of Rotary International – the umbrella organisation comprising 1.2 million members in over 32000 clubs – the Junagadh Rotary Club is proud to have helped fund the vaccine to rid the world of polio in the last 25 years. This work has been carried out by Rotarians worldwide through Rotary’s own charity, The Rotary Foundation.
