Club Executives & Directors
|Building peace through storytelling
Kiran Singh Sirah, a 2011-13 Rotary Peace Fellow at Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, promotes storytelling as a way to build peace as executive director of the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee, USA. For the International Day of Peace, observed on 21 September, Sirah shares his own story for our blog, Rotary Voices.
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. That’s exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib, launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles. It’s just one example of how Rotary’s programs for young people develop leaders.
