DG Sue Goldsen is happy to announce that District 6400 will sponsor a Vocational Training Team (VTT) to Ethiopia in 2017. The VTT will help the area with training in the following health priorities in Laelai Maichew Woreda. The training place is proposed to be at Axum Town, which offers the necessary facilities and logistical convenience. The team will provide training for trainers who will then train health care workers in the region. The areas of training will be: Maternal and child nutrition, Communicable disease prevention and control, WASH training, HIV AIDS prevention and treatment and Long-term family planning.
We will be looking for health care and medical professionals to be a part of this team. Watch for more information and details during the next week or so. We will be accepting resumes with a brief overview of your qualifications soon. The VTT team leader must be a Rotarian, and members of the team may be Rotarians or non-Rotarians.

Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at one of our peace centers.
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution. These fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
In just over a decade, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,000 fellows for careers in peacebuilding. Many of them are serving as leaders at international organizations or have started their own foundations.
Each year, Rotary awards up to 50 fellowships for master’s degrees and 50 for certificate studies at premier universities around the world.
- Master’s degree programs: Last 15 to 24 months and require a practical internship of two to three months during the academic break.
- Professional development certificates: For experienced professionals and lasts three months with two to three weeks of field study.

We are truly this close! Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, here are some ways to make a global impact and protect children against polio forever.
Rotarains—-Presidents challenge YOU to tell ONE non-Rotarian friend about the mission to eradicate polio, and ask for a donation of $26.50.
That’s it. Just one. Or more. Start with one. You can do it!
