Dear district leader,

Congratulations on earning Global Peacebuilder recognition for your district! You’ve achieved this distinction by contributing District Designated Funds or district cash during Rotary year 2021-22 to support Rotary Peace Centers or the peacebuilding and conflict prevention area of focus.

Global Peacebuilder Districts like yours play a critical role in supporting the work of the Rotary Peace Centers and our grassroots work in peacebuilding. Each year, your district contributions are part of the funding that allows up to 130 peace fellows to study at our seven Rotary Peace Centers. More than 1,500 alumni of the peace centers program are actively making the world more peaceful, from leading local initiatives in communities to guiding policy development at the United Nations and other multilateral organizations.

In 2021, Rotary’s newest peace center at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, began welcoming its first fellows from throughout Africa. This year, The Rotary Foundation is in the process of selecting a partner university to host another new Rotary Peace Center in the Middle East or North Africa, with the first class of fellows to begin study in 2025.

Your generous contributions also support the vital peacebuilding and conflict prevention work that clubs and districts do through projects supported by The Rotary Foundation. Through these activities, your donations help train leaders, address the root causes of conflict, and build the capacity of communities around the world to overcome violence and increase their resiliency so people can flourish.

Global Peacebuilder Districts like yours are invaluable to Rotary’s peacebuilding initiatives. Thank you for your continued generosity in support of this important work!

  1. I am an AG in District 5110. My daughter has an undergraduate degree in International Studies from the University of Oregon. Because she is the daughter of a Rotarian (me) we knew she was ineligible for the Peace Fellowship programs. She earned a Master of Science Degree in Conflict Management and Resolution in Aug. 2021 from the Joan B. Kroc Institute of Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego.

    Due to hiring challenges during the covid epidemic she continues to seek meaningful employment in this field. Can you offer ideas for possible career/employment opportunities she could explore through the Rotary peace initiatives and/or peace builder work? She lives in San Diego, CA so that would be ideal for employment but anything is possible. Any assistance/direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Jane Falls, AG District 5110

Can you share guidance/direction in potential employment or volunteer opportunities through the Rotary peace centers and/or efforts? Thank you!
