Foundation Month Focus
Peace and Conflict Resolution
 

As Rotary nears completion of its goal of eradicating polio, many have asked “what's next?” Where will the incredible talent and resources of Rotary be directed now?  The challenge that has in recent years risen to the forefront is that of increasing peace and resolving conflict.

For many, the pursuit of Peace (with a capital P) seems amorphous, hard to get one’s arms around, difficult to know where to start and what exactly to do. The challenge of eradicating polio must have seemed equally daunting when the End Polio Now campaign began, but that didn’t stop determined Rotarians. And that same determination can be used to promote peace and resolve conflicts. The key in this, as it was in the fight against polio, is to enlist able partners and bring our resources to bear on the effort.

 

This emphasis on Peace is not new. It dates back to 1917 when Paul Harris said:

"It is easier to interest men in war than in peace; it therefore requires more moral courage to talk peace than war."

I received the write-up below from fellow OWR Rotarian Larry Aikins announcing a project he is part of to improve healthcare in developing countries.  The goal for phase 1 is to raise $400,000 by the end of this summer and deploy 200 vital sign measurement devices to villages in Ghana.  Please help him with raising money for this important project by donating to the Towson University fund here.
 
Project Announcement
 
A group of researchers from Towson University is working to develop an electronic health record system (EHRS) that interfaces with all-in-one clinical vital sign measurement device that includes about 16 medical sensors. The device can generate clinical measurement data that can be converted into patient health record file that meets international standards for interoperability. The generated records are stored in the cloud for healthcare providers to access so as to improve all aspects of patient care such as continuity of care, evidence based treatment and preventing medical mistakes. It is also the place to have entire medical history for each individual.
 
One of the comments fom the website survey was that we were missing out on an opportunity by having the ClubRunner symbol appear on bookmarks instead of the Rotary symbol.  This update describes how this comment was addressed.
 
Now our Club Banner will appear on Browser tabs automatically and members can add the banner on their respective devices too. 
 
PEACE RELATED

 

 

CONFLICT AND VIOLENCE DISPLACE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE EACH YEAR. HALF OF THOSE KILLED IN CONFLICT ARE CHILDREN, AND 90 PERCENT ARE CIVILIANS. 

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.

HOW ROTARY MAKES HELP HAPPEN

Through our service projects, peace fellowships, and scholarships, our members are taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
