Atlanta 2017 Rotary Convention, part 7 (Aired on December 16 & 17, 2017)
Continuing its broadcasts from the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta,
RadioRotary Co-Hosts Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Conner interview representatives of several of the many exhibits featured at the Convention. “The One” Rotary Action Group presents an award of $100,000 to the International Humanitarian of the year along with $50,000 each to two runners-up, enabling these humanitarians to increase their work with the poor of the world. One effort to help the poor is Project Peanut Butter, which uses Rotary grants to manufacture and supply a specially formatted peanut butter that saves the lives of starving children, primarily in Africa. Another Rotary Action Group specializes in preventing blindness through improving maternal health, cataract surgery, and detection of macular degeneration. The “I Can Read” songs are taught to pre-school children, providing an easy way to learn reading easy, high-frequency words. Rotary volunteers staff the Wheelchair Foundation, which provides new and refurbished devices to give mobility to the disabled.

Representing Rotary at the United Nations (Aired on February 11 and 12, 2017)

Representing Rotary at the United Nations (Aired on February 11 and 12,
2017)

Rotary International has had a close relation with the United Nations even beforeits fou nding—the London Rotary Club helps start UNESCO and nearly 50 of the de legates to the conference that drafted the UN Charter in 1945 were Rotarians. This relationship became even closer when Rotary partnered with several UN divisions in 1988 for a campaign to eradicate polio. Several Rotarians represent Rotary at UN meetings, including Greater Newburgh Rotarian Knut Johnsen, who tells RadioRotary about the experience on this program. An important part ofthe UN representatives’ work is planning the annual Rotary Day at the United Nations, when the UN is closed to all but Rotarians. Mr. Johnsen is active in Rotary in many ways, especially with The Rotary Foundation, the charitable arm of Rotary that regularly receives the highest ratings from independent evaluators.
