World Understanding Month

February 4, 2016

Rotary has a different theme for each month of the year to help us reflect on what it is we are doing and to think how we can implement that theme in our clubs.

More than ever it seems that the theme of world understanding which is February's theme is something we need to address.

Looking at what some clubs and districts are doing to gain a greater understanding of our world, we can feel that we are doing a small part by supporting a short term youth exchange this year. When young people experience another culture it not only helps them, but it also enlightens the Rotarians whom they visit.

Are there other ways we can understand those who live lives different from our own? Are there educational programs available? Perhaps we need to pay more attention to the themes of each Rotary month and think how at least one of speakers could address the monthly topic or we could reflect on it in some way. Let's try this month to have each Rotarian find a way to become more aware of the rest of the world.
