ROTARY International, District 9125 Nigeria, has joined the global community to celebrate the 2015 International Peace Day by calling for greater tolerance among the populace.

To mark the Day, Rotary International, District 9125, Nigeria has announced plans to organize a special training in peaceful coexistence and conflict resolution in conjunction with the Nigerian Army Peace Corps.

While Rotarians serve in countless ways, Rotary has focused its efforts in six key areas to maximize our impact, officials say.

“These areas encompass some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian needs and are: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution; disease prevention and treatment; water and sanitation; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and economic and community development,” says District Governor, Dr. Mike Omotosho.

Omotosho harped on how Rotary promotes the practice of peace and conflict prevention/resolution by: strengthening local peace efforts; training local leaders to prevent and mediate conflict; supporting long-term peace building in areas affected by conflict; assisting vulnerable populations affected by conflict, particularly children and youth and supporting studies related to peace and conflict resolution.
