Polio Immunizations in India

Since January 2011, there has been only ONE new confirmed case of polio in India.  In 2012, India was removed from the list of polio endemic countries.  We are getting remarkably close to eradicating polio globally.  Therefore, this might be one of the last opportunities we will have to organize a trip to India to participate in polio National Immunization Days (NID) activities.  This trip offers you and the Rotarians in your club and District an extraordinary opportunity to have an experience of a life time.

So.... RUSSIA!!!!! It's only the most amazing place ever!! It is just so beautiful!!! And everyone is so nice, and helpful, and everyone wants to show you everything!!! 

Epigraph! I am only attending school Epigraph and it is great! There is only 5 kids in my class, which I thought I would hate, but I love it. They are all so nice and they help me and Joaquin a lot with our Russian. And because we are such a small group it means we can go on little field trips a lot! And we are all starting to become actual friends which is very nice!
