International Service

International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. Rotarians can tap into an international network of people who share similar interests.

Pulse Polio

Although Rotary clubs develop autonomous service programs, all Rotarians are united in a global campaign to eradicate polio. Thanks to Rotary efforts, Polio has been almost eradicated from the earth, and no case has been reported since January 2011 in India.

RBDD jointly with Rotary Whitefield club is responsible for Pulse Polio program at the Kodihally Primary Health Centre. The volunteers oversee the administration of drops and help with publicity material and refreshments for the volunteers manning the booths.
