Yes District 6250 had its own Peace Fellow this year!  Kenyan Solomon Odero was interviewed by a District Committee this past fall, recommended by our District, accepted into the program and recently completed his three months of training in Thailand.  Every year District 6250 is involved in this program at no expense to the District other than some time and energy.  In exchange we have the satisfaction of seeing Peace Fellows that we have spoken with and recommended complete the program and obtain jobs around the world in all types of for profit and non-profit institutions.  
 
 
Each year Rotary awards up to 130 fully funded fellowship for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our peace centers. 
 
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops the capacity of peace and development professionals or practitioners to become experienced and effective catalysts for peace. The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
 
Since the program began in 2002, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,300 fellows who now work in more than 115 countries. Many serve as leaders in governments, NGOs, the military, education, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank.

The Rotary Peace Fellowship is designed for leaders with work experience in peace and development. Our fellows are committed to community and international service and the pursuit of peace. Each year, The Rotary Foundation awards up to 50 fellowships for master’s degrees and 80 for certificate studies at premier universities.
