Rotary International is where neighbours, friends and problem solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change.
People and nations worldwide observe the International Day of Peace on 21st September, as Rotarians we celebrate this each year. On this page we want to build a virtual Peace Wall, where we can write our messages about our aspirations for Peace in our World.
The Rotary Foundation is our own charity, which is one of the World’s most outstanding charities. The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.
We ask you to Buy-a-Brick for our wall at £5 a donation to The Rotary Foundation as you write something on your brick to build our wall. ‘What does Peace mean to you?’ Please complete the form below to submit your message.

Below are just samples of messages these are from Paul P Harris the founder of Rotary
1910-12 Paul P. Harris (Founder of Rotary) (law), Rotary Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA. Rotary vision: To harness the great power of friendship to help do the world’s work.
“Friendship is a natural and willing servant….There is no reason…why the great power of friendship should not be harnessed to do its part in the world’s work.”
— Report of the President, 1912 Rotary Convention, Duluth, Minnesota, USA
“Friendship was the foundation rock on which Rotary was built and tolerance is the element which holds it together.”
— My Road to Rotary
