Please click on the image below for the Peace Newsletter.  February is the month Rotary focuses on Peace and Conflict Prevention and Resolution.  As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission. We can create peace in communities by carrying out service projects and supporting peace fellowships and scholarships.

Rotary‚Äôs Four Roles in Promoting Peace. Rotary and its members are:

  • Practitioners: Our work fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, improving the health of mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies directly builds the optimal conditions for peaceful societies.
  • Educators: Our Rotary Peace Centers have trained over 1,300 peace fellows to become effective catalysts for peace through careers in government, education, and international organizations. 
  • Mediators: Our members have negotiated humanitarian ceasefires in areas of conflict to allow polio vaccinators to reach children who are at risk. 
  • Advocates: Our members have an integral role as respected, impartial participants during peace processes and in post-conflict reconstruction. We focus on creating communities and convening groups that are connected, inclusive, and resilient.
