The Concept of 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 support International Service by sponsoring a project in another country, seeking international project partners to support projects in their own communities, or by personally volunteering at an international project site.  

The Westtown-Goshen Rotary Club supports international projects our club members have developed like CHAP (Community Health Advocacy Programs) supporting mobile diagnostic health screenings for diabetes and hypertension. We advocate for and support Rotary International’s Polio Plus, Safe Drinking Water Projects, Doctors without Borders, Rotaplast Operation Smile and Plumpy Nut to address severe malnutrition across the globe.

 

Our club is active in Rotary youth exchange and we sponsor inbound and outbound students. If you are interested in Youth Exchange, please contact our Youth Exchange Chair and discuss the opportunities for inbound and outbound opportunities.
 

Examples of WE-GO's International Projects include: 

ShelterBox: In response to natural disasters around the globe, our club has sent life-saving ShelterBoxes to aid in the relief efforts. We’ve helped with the earthquake in Haiti and the tsunami in Japan. 

Stop Hunger Now: WE-GO members, family and friends financially support packaging thousands of meals for international distribution.  Attending the District 7450, WE-GO helped packaged 20,000 dry meals for hunger relief.

Dominican Republic: Over the last decade, Michael Ceffaratii of West Chester along with his son Kyle have journeyed to remote villages in the Dominican Republic to develop safe drinking water resources, build education resources and supply children with baseball gloves, bats and balls.  WE-GO has helped provide financial support and helped the East Side Little League collect used baseball equipment for shipment to the Dominican Republic that was distributed by the Michael and his group of volunteers.

Rotaplast: Rotaplast International, Inc. was founded in 1992 by Dr. Angelo Capozzi and the then Rotary Club President Peter Lagarias in collaboration with the Rotary Club of San Francisco to facilitate a surgical program in La Serena, Chile to treat children with the cleft lip and palate anomaly who would otherwise not receive surgical intervention.  WE-GO Financially supports Rotoplast's mission and trips throughout the world. 

CHAP: Community Health Advocacy Programs founded by WE-GO's own Govinda Malya, provides mobile diagnostic health screenings for diabetes and hypertension. WE-GO provided the seed funds to launch the project in India and is helping to promote the project to other parts of the world.

Polio Plus

WE-GO supports the eradication of polio through annual giving and special fund raising projects. Since 1985 Rotary has led the battle against polio globally, and kept the pressure on as worldwide cases plummeted from 350,000 per year to several hundred.

.

When India went off the list of endemic countries in 2012, we took one more step toward eradicating a human disease from the earth for only the second time in history. Join WE-GO and other Rotary Clubs world wide in the efforts to eradicate polio.

We are this close ...
