END POLIO NOW – PROJECT UPDATE
 
Our District-based team for End Polio Now are working hard to raise funds to continue our effort internationally to stamp out Polio throughout the world.   With only two countries (Afghanistan and Pakistan) with Wild Polio left, and with only one new case reported in 2021, we are very close to striking it out.   And the best news yet is that the new Taliban administration seem to be supporting the programme and vaccinations have resumed in Afghanistan and border crossings with Pakistan.
 
Our local "Ride The Train for Polio" event has been delayed due to an COVID and the aim is to continue with this event 27th of February.

Action Plan
 
As People of Action, we understand that fulfilling that vision requires a plan.
More than a century ago, we pioneered a new model of service leadership grounded in person-to-person connections. Today, those connections are a network that spans the globe—bridging cultural, linguistic, generational, and geographic barriers—and shares the vision of a better world. As People of Action, we understand that fulfilling that vision requires a plan.
