Last year Rotary Global Grants helped to fund 182 projects in the Economic and Community Development area of focus. Entrepreneurs and small business owners may receive free business training, microloans, business mentoring, and networking opportunities. Others may learn how to produce higher yield crops which then are available for sale transforming a garden plot into an income stream.

The following is a proposal put forward by Rahul Mehra PhD of Cañon City RC
 
Rotary has done an excellent job of reducing Polio cases across the world. However, many other diseases are still rampant; not only in the developing countries but in the developed countries as well. Examples are many infectious diseases, heart disease, cancer etc. Rather than tackling one disease at a time, we should attempt a comprehensive solution for reducing global diseases. The only cost-effective method is to prevent diseases, not treat them. Most diseases can be prevented by following good lifestyle health habits of diet, hygiene, exercise and promoting mental and social health. If we do not develop these healthy lifestyles when we are young, it becomes very difficult once we become adults. The biggest opportunity is to provide health education to children across the world on how to improve physical, mental and social health. This will help them lead a healthy lifestyle as they grow and prevent diseases. Rotary’s global initiative should be to ensure that every school child in the world gets Health Education; very similar to reading, writing and arithmetic. Health Education should be mandatory. Only then will every child be healthy and realize their full potential.
