Rotary’s service and project partners are finding creative ways to connect while gathering in person is difficult. Look at what they’re doing and get inspired.
Ashoka: The organization is supporting social entrepreneurs in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America who have innovative approaches to the COVID-19 crisis. Changemakers United has grown into a global coordinated effort connecting social innovators and leaders from business and philanthropy. Ashoka offers regionally organized virtual events for innovators.
Habitat for Humanity: The housing non-profit has continued its mission in the midst of COVID-19, making strides in advocacy, microfinancing, and community reinvestment. Its +You series brings together experts from around the world for streaming events to discuss significant issues in housing, including housing and health, the effect of the pandemic on low-income families, racial inequity in housing, and more.
Mediators Beyond Borders International: MBBI is encouraging people to understand that global problems require collaboration, creative problem-solving, and consensus-building. It believes now is a critical time for people to use communication and empathy, to reduce prejudices and stay connected. Learn how to facilitate these conversations in your community with the town hall resource guide and other online resources.
Peace Corps: Rotary members who have also served in the Peace Corps can help the agency celebrate its 60th anniversary by sharing their Peace Corps experience. The Through the Decades series honors the legacy, volunteers, and the communities that have been served. Help represent your decade and share a story and images about your experience as a volunteer, supporter, or host community leader or member.
ShelterBox: The organization is working alongside Rotary and Rotaract clubs, to respond to emergency-shelter needs around the world, including those caused by severe weather in the Philippines and hurricanes that battered Central America. ShelterBox has adapted and scaled its response during the pandemic while continuing to work with local partners. Learn more from its weekly virtual updates.
