2016-17 Peace Fellow

‘2016-17 Peace Fellow’

Our District’s Peace Fellow for 2016-17 is Patricia Garcia OAM, who has just completed her three months of study at the Peace Centre at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. The 22 Fellows are hosted by the Rotary Club of Bangkok and other Bangkok clubs.

Patricia found the course to be extremely intense, challenging and inspiring and is already making plans for future work in peace and conflict resolution.

Patricia is a highly respected humanitarian and human rights advocate who has worked in war zones for over 20 years (Afghanistan, Sudan, Burma) and has worked for many global NGOs, managing programs with responsibility for emergency and post conflict recovery.

She was a state finalist for Australian of the Year (Humanitarian) and has been recognised with an OAM.
