TIME IS RUNNING OUT....
There is only a little bit of a month left to apply for the 2020-21 Rotary Peace Fellowship. 
The spike in regional and local conflicts around the globe has boosted the need for peace and development leaders skilled in building positive social change. The fully funded Rotary Peace Fellowship, which covers tuition and living expenses, increases the capacity of existing leaders to prevent and resolve conflict through academic training, field experience, and professional networking.
Up to 100 fellows are selected every year in a globally competitive process based on personal, academic, and professional achievements. Fellows earn either a master’s degree or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict studies at one of the Rotary Peace Centers, located within seven leading universities around the world. More than 1200 program alumni are working in over 100 countries as leaders in national governments, NGOs, social enterprises, the military, law enforcement, and international organizations such as the United Nations.

This month in Tanzania the honorary plaque to former Antioch Member Bob Diess was mounted on the wall of the Kilimahewa Educational Centre.  This plaque was purchased to recognize the amazing work Bob did to help secure a Rotary International Global Grant for the Kilimahewa Educational Centre.  This grant funded various educational opportunities for vulnerable teens in Tanzania to learn skills such as a computers skills, agro-business skills, and entrepreneurial skills. The global grant led to a strong partnership with Rotary and the development of an Interact club within Kilimahewa.  28 students helped from the 1st Interact club in memory of Bob and the amazing work he did to help the school.  
 
These pictures show the plaque mounted on the wall at Kilimahewa.  The new Interact advisers attending a Rotary meeting to accept the plaque committing to start a Interact club.  And the first Interact meeting with Rotary members present sharing goals and ideas for the future.
