The Rotary Foundation Canada is pleased to announce that on behalf of Canadian Rotarians an endowment has been funded to support the annual capstone seminar at Rotary’s newest Peace Centre at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
The endowment was established with a gift of CAN$125,000.00 (US $100,000) to The Rotary Foundation. The seminar is an opportunity for peace fellows to reflect and report on their social change initiative efforts to an audience of peers, Rotarians, and experts in the field. The year long certificate courses at Makerere overlap allowing current and incoming fellows the opportunity to network and build fellowship.
Trustee Dean Rohrs the Chair of The Rotary Foundation Canada stated, “I recently, as President of the Rotary Foundation Canada, signed an Agreement to establish the ‘Canadian Rotarians Makerere Peace Endowment’. I do so on behalf of all Canadian Rotarians who continually demonstrate their commitment to peace in Africa. May this endowment be a constant reminder of the strong connections between Canadian Rotarians and Africa.”
