Rotary hopes to enhance long-term relationships with Rotary Peace Fellows by encouraging partnerships on peacebuilding and conflict prevention projects, including those funded by Rotary global grants. Peace fellows can gain a better sense of how to partner with Rotary clubs and districts by understanding how grant projects are initiated and funded. The purpose is for peace fellows to learn about this topic from Rotary staff and other peace fellows.
