Answer:

for infinitive use

Explanation:

is to help to develop POLO worldwide.
except causative few verbs and few situation of "to" usage as a preposition use of "to," is always an infinitive.

I saw the blind man cross the road. EXCEPTION.
Few perception verbs are included like it, they need ZERO /bare infinitives.
I am looking forward to hearing you soon. EXCEPTION.
Don't be misguided here the "to" is not an infinitive, it is a preposition here,.
Like all modal verbs need bare infinitives.
Hope it works.

Saying "The purpose of this visit is to help develop Polo worldwide" isn't correct. Instead, it should be "The purpose of this visit is to help developing Polo worldwide.

The reason it is better to say "The purpose of this visit is to help to develop Polo worldwide" is because develop is also a verb, so you wanna make sure you add that to in there.
