February is Rotary's Peace and Conflict Resolution Month
The Problem
Conflict and violence displace millions of people each year. Half of those killed in conflict are children, and 90 percent are civilians.

What Rotary Does
  • We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.
  • We address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
  • Rotary’s People for People Foundation, has helped 10,000 families afford food, clothing, rent, utilities, medications, and other necessities.
  • Rotaract clubs in the Philippines conduct antibullying campaigns in schools to teach children how to handle conflict peacefully from an early age.
  • In Louisiana, Rotary tacked violence against women by helping a shelter provide food, clothing, legal advocacy, and counseling to over 500 women in one year.  
  • In Australia, Rotary clubs raise awareness and funds to prevent domestic violence and support its victims.  
  • In Nigeria, a university president and Rotary Club  fight Boko Haram by educating and feeding victims
  • Rotary members in a small town of Nova Scotia, Canada, took action to bring two families from war-torn Syria to their country, where the refugees are starting a new life.
  • $US142 million has been raised by Rotary to support Peace
  • 1000+ Peace Scholars have been trained and distributed to needy areas around the world
