Protection and care of the mother and the child migrants

Taranto, Italy | 28 april 2018

booking from october newsletter subscription

The Conference is a unique opportunity for youth, community leaders and Rotarians to exchange ideas and solutions with peace professionals from around the world. World sixty-five million people flee their country because of armed conflict or persecution, and 90 percent of deaths due to armed conflicts are civilians, half of whom are children. Through service projects, Rotary Fellowships and other Rotary-sponsored campaigns, members train adult leaders and young people to prevent and mediate conflicts and assist displaced, migrants, refugees and unattended minors. Peace is much more than just the absence of conflict. It is the quality of the act of governing, and the degree to which human needs are met. 
Peace is a continuous process in which to stay engaged forever.

"We know that we can do more together than we could ever hope to do alone."
