Dear Fellow Rotarians,

Congratulations, we are about to celebrate 115 years of existence. On 23rd of February 2020, we will celebrates our 115th anniversary. Let’s see which club in our district will contribute more to the Annual Fund, ENDPOLIO or to the Endowment fund Number E11563 in memory of PDG Usama Barghouthi and PDG Mustafa Nasereddin.

As you are aware, February is Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution month.

One of the priority areas for Rotary International represents its greatest commitment to contribute to promote lasting peace in the world. Our district faces a lot of challenges in that regard. There are still several unresolved, so called “frozen conflicts” which require our attention and calls on our priceless support. Rotary makes an immense difference to invest a lot in supporting Peace Fellows from all over the world, giving them the opportunity to encounter Peace and Conflict study area and to develop their skills within Six Rotary Peace Centers at seven prestigious universities throughout the world offer Rotary Peace Fellows a rigorous program of study and applied field experience in areas relating to peace and conflict resolution. By the way, one center has been recently launched at Makarere University in Uganda. Specific peace building programs have been developed in each center. Peace Fellows have the amazing opportunity to get Master’s degree or the professional development program available only at Rotary Peace Center at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. This latter program is shorter and the purpose is to help already experiences professionals to become inspiring peace-builders and to make a difference with their contribution in transforming overwhelming conflicts.

Peace Fellows which have been sponsored by our district are empowering their societies for the better future with more peaceful societies embracing mutual understanding and respect.

Thanks to Rotary, we have Peace Ambassadors in all regions. This outstanding opportunity makes many fellows from different nationalities to start to understand each other foremost and then to inspire others within their respective communities. Therefore, my dear fellow Rotarians, on behalf of our district, let me congratulate all of you for your valuable and meaningful contribution to these peace building efforts we all are making so let us advocate and make awareness of this priority area and support more professionals for this very important field.

 

Have a lovey month.
