Nearly 9,000 members of Rotary from across the globe attended the Jubilee Audience at the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square on 30 April 2016 at the invitation of Pope Francis.  
At the end of the Audience, a delegation of Rotary members - led by Rotary International President K.R. Ravindran - met Pope Francis where he emphasized the importance of vaccinations against polio and urged Rotary to continue.
Pope Francis follows Paul VI and John Paul II in connecting with Rotary to encourage their support of a more peaceful and compassionate world.  
 
 
 
 
Foundation Minute for Week of June 20th
For decades, the small pastoral communities in northern Kenya have been caught in a cycle of violence.  Tribes have shed blood over distrust, scarce resources, and the theft of livestock. 
 
Former Rotary Scholar Monica Kinyua and her sister Jane, founded the Children Peace Initiative Kenya to end the fighting by building friendships between children from different tribes. 
 
The sisters used a Rotary global grant sponsored by Rotarians in San Diego, California and the Rotary Club of Nairobi to conduct one of several peace camps for children and their teachers in Baragoi, Samburu County, a highly dangerous area.  The peace camps have helped reduce violence in the region.
 
Monica states,”Through the program, children are directly participating in intercommunity peace and coaching their parents and influencing the communities to live peacefully with each other.”
 
Your contribution to Rotary makes this happen.  Thank you.
