4 Ways to Build Peace through Rotary

By Rotary Service and Engagement Staff

According to UNHCR, 65.6 million people are currently displaced by conflict, violence, or persecution. Rotary members refuse to accept conflict as a way of life and are committed to pursuing projects that address the structural causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

Rotary projects provide trainings that fosters understanding and equip communities with skills to resolve conflicts. During February, Rotary Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month, build peace and mitigate conflict by:

  1. Incorporating conflict resolution and mediation strategies into service projects involving local schools, orphanages, workplaces, and community centers.
  2. Supporting marginalized groups in risk of violence or persecution by providing relief to those who have fled areas of conflict.
  3. Participating in fellowship and service activities with Rotary clubs in other parts of the world to promote greater international understanding.
  4. Recruiting candidates for a Rotary Peace Fellowship. Up to 100 peace fellowships are offered annually at Rotary Peace Centers at universities around the world.

 

 

THE HEART OF ROTARY IS OUR MEMBERS, DEDICATED PEOPLE WHO SHARE A PASSION FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE AND FRIENDSHIP

Rotary members share ideas, make plans, hear from the community, and catch up with friends during club programs that fuel the impact we make.
