A PEACEBUILDER IN
Peacebuilding begins with us.
But where do we start?
Did you know that you can support The Rotary Foundation through
the Rotary International and End Polio Now Facebook pages? You can
also create a personal fundraiser on Facebook for Rotary International
or End Polio Now. Contributions from donors and fundraisers on
Rotary’s Facebook page go to the World Fund to support the most
urgent needs, while donations and fundraisers on the End Polio Now
page support polio eradication.
Donations through Facebook do not count toward recognition points,
so if you want to receive contribution credit you can give directly at
rotary.org/donate. Find answers to frequently asked questions
about donating through Facebook.

The Rotary Positive Peace Academy is a free online course where
you can gain the knowledge and tools to promote peace in your
community and in the world. Once you sign up, you can proceed
at your own pace at times that work for you.
We’ve enhanced the academy so you can now:
Learn about peace and conflict issues, and find out through
interactive and engaging videos and exercises how to put
Positive Peace into action in your community.
Access the most up-to-date data from the Institute for
Economics and Peace’s 2019 Global Peace and Positive Peace
Connect with other peace advocates. When you complete the
academy, you’ll be invited to join a Facebook group where you
can network with other academy graduates to share stories,
projects, and resources and can discuss how you’re applying
Positive Peace locally.
Be rewarded for your work with a certificate of completion
that lets people know you’re an advocate for Positive Peace.
Encourage your members to get involved in Positive Peace and
become a 100 percent Positive Peace-certified club. As the number
of members who complete the academy increases, so do our
opportunities to build and sustain peace.
The Rotary Positive Peace Academy will help you do what Rotarians
do best — take what you learn and put it into action. Learn more
and register at rotarypositivepeace.org.
Coming soon: The Rotary Positive Peace Academy will be available
in Spanish by early 2020 and in French and Portuguese by late 2020.
The Rotary Positive Peace Academy was created in partnership
with the Institute for Economics and Peace, an international think
tank dedicated to understanding the factors that contribute to
