The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. Many of these projects are directed towards conflict and violence that has displaced millions of people each year.  Half of those killed in conflict are children, and 90% are civilians. 
Rotary refuses to accept conflict as a way of life.  Its projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts. 
In the past Rotary and its members have helped Tanzanians with albinism find safe futures.  It helped a university professor and a Rotary club fight Boko Haram by helping those women who were kidnapped find a new life.  It has helped Brazil’s youth escape from slums by offering them judo and helped end domestic violence in Australia. 
A Rotaract club in the Philippines conduct anti-bullying campaigns in schools to teach children how to handle conflict peacefully from an early age, and local Rotarians in Louisiana dealt with domestic violence – the fourth highest incidence of death in the US -by helping a shelter provide food, clothing, legal advocacy and counseling to over 500 women in one year.  
Rotary supports peace – with your help our foundation can continue to promote peach through projects and education.  Thank you.
