In Celebration of International Peace Day, a team of Rotarians volunteered their time to speak to hundreds of Students along the length of the island about the importance of Peace and their school becoming a recognized Peace Site.  The aim of our club, through this initiative is to "empower our communities to educate for a just and peaceful world."
 
This initiative was first introduced to our club by President Elect Lisa Krupp, of the World Citizen/Peace Sites organization, and as a result of our partnership with World Citizen/Peace Sites, as well as with the One Eleuthera Foundation (OEF), the Deep Creek Middle School became the 1st International Peace Site in the Caribbean last year.  On the eve of International Day of Peace, a presentation was made to hundreds of students around the island of Eleuthera, encouraging schools to become Peace Sites thereby enabling their students to become World Citizens who seek to uphold these 5 Peace Actions:
  • SEEK peace within yourself and others
  • REACH OUT in service
  • PROTECT the environment
  • RESPECT diversity
  • BE a responsible citizen of the world
President Susan Culmer and a team of Executive Board members of our club has recently met with The Ministry of Education Eleuthera Division, under the leadership of Incoming District Superintendent, Michael Culmer, and and we are very excited to join in partnership to make every school on the island a Peace Site.

“It is possible to achieve our goals, but we need decisions, political will and transformational policies to allow us to still live in peace with our own climate"
