“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.” Hafsat Abiola
To create world peace and togetherness, we need to care about the needs of others, be sensitive to their plight and come together to address the concerns of our communities and the world. Rotary already does this through advocating for peace promotion and conflict resolution among the different countries worldwide. Make a decision to care about what happens to other people around you especially the less privileged.
One way to start is by having constructive conversations with people we disagree with. By listening to other perspectives and being open to learning, unlearning, and relearning, we can gain a better understanding of the issues that affect our communities and the world. We can also be more sensitive to the plight of those who are less privileged and work to address their concerns.
In this issue, we present projects from Rotaract Clubs of Naguru, Kololo, Kampala North, Kampala Central and Kampala South. I hope you enjoy reading about these projects as much as we did compiling this bulletin. We can all choose to make society more just and peaceful if we start being good to the people around us. So let’s make a decision today to care about others and to do our part to promote peace and harmony in the world.
