Did You Know?
Promoting Peace is listed as Rotary's Number 1 Cause. It’s fair to say that everything Rotary does helps promote peace.
What projects has your club done recently that fulfill Rotary’s broad definition of peace building?
 
From John Hewko, General Secretary of Rotary International: "[We] are unofficial diplomats and peacebuilders of our age. When you build a system for clean water, you are a peacebuilder. When you help out a student struggling to graduate, you are a peacebuilder. When you launch any project to support education, health, or economic development in your local community, or elsewhere … YOU ARE BUILDING THE OPTIMALCONDITIONS FORPOSITIVE PEACE."

 Why IS peace one of Rotary’s 7 Pillars?
★ Peace is more than the absence of violence.
★ Peace is more than ending wars.
★ Peace is ensuring there is justice for all.
 
The global economic impact of violence in 2022 was $17.5 trillion, according to the Institute for Economics and Peace’s 2023 Global Peace Index.
