RCFC International Programs Update

September 25, Robin Steele, Chair of our International Projects and Grants (IP&G) Committee, and other members of the IP&G Committee will share updates on the projects and grants that our club  has helped to fund and implement around the world in the last few years.    

Rotary Global Grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s 6 areas of focus:   Peace and conflict prevention/resolution, Disease prevention and treatment, Water and sanitation, Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy, and Economic and community development.  By working together to respond to real community needs, clubs and districts strengthen their global reach and partnerships.

The Rotary Club of Fort Collins IP&G Committee works diligently to find international partner clubs in other countries and to meet the other Rotary Global Grant requirements in order to maximize our leverage of the Rotary Foundation’s matching funds.

Peace Making Study of the Ukraine
Wednesday, September 18, RCFC heard from fellow Rotarian William M. Timpson, Ph.D.  His professional life centers on answers to the question "How do we inspire peace with self, others and the planet?".  From April 22, 2019 to May 6, 2019, Bill took part in the Presbyterian Peacemaking Project in the Ukraine, where a violent war between segments of this republic and Russian forces has been fought since 2014.  He brings back to us a report on the effort to listen to all sides, take into account the commonalities, and initiate a process that may eventually result in peace in this historically troubled area of the world, 
Bill has served as a professor in CSU's School of Education for many years, and is a published author on the teaching of peace building.
