Rotary Friendship Exchange

An interesting Rotary program of fellowship is the Rotary Friendship Exchange. This activity is intended to encourage Rotarians and their families to visit with Rotarian families in other parts of the world. It may be conducted on a club-to-club (individual Rotarians and their families) or district-to-district (four to six Rotary couples) basis.
 
The idea is for several Rotarian couples to travel to another country on the Rotary Friendship Exchange. Later, the hospitality is reversed when the visit is reciprocated. After a successful pilot experiment, the Rotary Friendship Exchange became a permanent program of Rotary in 1988.
 
The Rotary Friendship Exchange is frequently compared to the Group Study Exchange program of The Rotary Foundation, except that it involves Rotarian couples or families who personally pay for all expenses of their intercountry experience. Doors of friendship are opened in a way that could not be duplicated except in Rotary.
 
Rotarians seeking an unusual vacation and fellowship experience should learn more about the Rotary Friendship Exchange. Some unusual Rotary adventures are awaiting you!

This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Ambassadorial Scholarships.

Former Ambassadorial Scholar and Youth Exchange student Ryan Carrier says: ―You can go on a trip somewhere, but that‘s not the same thing as living in a place and getting to know the people, seeing their perspectives, and gaining their trust and really being welcomed in a deeper way. It gave me a lot more confidence to do something bigger with my life. If I hadn‘t had both of those helping hands along the way from Rotary — the exchange program and the Ambassadorial Scholarship — I wouldn‘t have had the opportunities that I have now.‖ Carrier is now working as a legal officer for the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

 

Rotary International President-elect Barry Rassin laid out his vision for the future of the organization on Sunday, calling on leaders to work for a sustainable future and to inspire Rotarians and the community at large.

Rassin, a member of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, unveiled the 2018-19 presidential theme, Be the Inspiration, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA. “I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us.”
