February is Peace & Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month

One of the six areas of focus of Rotary that has come even more to the forefront over the past year is peace and conflict resolution and prevention.  This also happens to be the theme for the month of February.   

 

 

It is often the conflicts that occur throughout the world that are the root causes of poverty, despair, economic hardship and poor health.  Take for instance the major deterrent to polio eradication: the difficulty in vaccinating children in war torn countries.   We see these conflicts as well occurring in some form within our own communities with the same results.  Rotary International as an organization understands this relationship and therefore is deeply invested in supporting individuals and programs that will develop leaders who are committed to seeking ways toward peace.  The path toward peace begins with understanding and respect for the differences that make us unique.
