The project is to vaccinate with two dosis, 4764 boys in the age of 9-11 years, in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). By vaccinating these children, it prevents them from contracting any disease related to this virus, in addition to being able to transmit it to their partners by having sexual relations in the future. So, the health and social impact is very important for the community. The project involves Rotarians, as well as private and public organizations related to this issue, such as the local Departments of Health and Education. The laboratory that provides the vaccine, trains everyone before starting the implementation.
This project is "Application Sent". This means the application has been sent to The Rotary Foundation, waiting to be approved.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
