Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!
 
 
 
 
 
Dear Fellow OWR Members,

So nice to be back with you in the New Year!
I hope you had a big party for New Year’s Eve. I myself was traveling in Europe and I loved every minute of it. It was quite an intensive trip.
Now that we are back in the routine, we have also made a very speedy start to the second half of our Rotary term – I feel like it is time to reflect on what we had envisaged and what we have so far accomplished. We have been trying a few changes lately for our e-club to see if they will be more engaging for our members and also for our guests. Please be on the lookout and do not forget to give us your feedback!

Like I always say, I truly believe that our diversity is a blessing disguised as a challenge. There is rarely any other Rotary E-club that is not just international, but also so widespread into so many different time zones. There is so much we can learn from each other. In this new year of 2020, please spare the time to share with us a Rotary project of your buddy club, tell us about a trip you have taken, a hobby you enjoy, or simply allow us to find inspiration by witnessing a part of your life that has been important to you. I am confident this also where we will come up with our best Rotary projects.
 
Have a happy weekend.
Regards,
Ozlem

President 2019-2020
 
I welcome your feedback and any ideas you might have for our programs.
 
10 years into the Rotary-USAID
water and sanitation partnership
here’s what worked, what didn’t — and why
 
 
 

An old piece of railroad track is laid across a pit toilet. The walls are crumbling. The stench is overwhelming. It’s the only toilet for a school in rural Ghana, and most children refuse to use it. They do their business outside instead — or quit school altogether.

This is an all-too-common experience: Half of Ghana’s population lives in rural areas, and only 10 percent of those people have access to basic sanitation. Two-thirds can obtain safe drinking water — after a 30-minute round trip.


 

 
 
 
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."

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.
