February: Peace and Conflict Resolution

 
Sixty million people are displaced by armed conflict or persecution, and 90 percent of armed-conflict casualties are civilians, half of them children. Through service projects, fellowships, and other Rotary-sponsored campaigns, members train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict, and aid refugees who have fled dangerous areas. Members also pursue projects to address the underlying structural causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

Our D7040 Interact Vision Team will be traveling to Guatemala with Common Hope, a non-profit organization that works with impoverished children and families who want to participate in a process of development to improve their lives through education, health care, and housing. While education is the heart of the work, Common Hope believes a comprehensive approach to development is critical for children, families, and communities to be truly successful.
 
We will be leaving for Guatemala in March, 2016. Teams learn about life in Guatemala and the situations that people living in poverty face. We are excited to have the opportunity to see Common Hope’s efforts first hand, meet affiliated families, and volunteer our time and skills to help this organization further its work.
