支持環境成為新的焦點領域

扶輪基金會保管委員會和國際扶輪理事會都一致核准增加一個新的焦點領域:支持環境(supporting environment)。

 

過去5年裡,扶輪基金會的全球獎助金已對與環境相關的計畫撥出超過1800萬美元。創立一個特出的焦點領域來支持環境將為扶輪社員提供更多途徑,為世界帶來正向的改變並增加我們的影響力。

 

支持環境成為扶輪的第七個焦點領域,而焦點領域是全球獎助金支持的服務活動的類別。支持環境加入的焦點領域為建立和平與預防衝突;疾病預防與治療;水,環境衛生與個人衛生;母親與嬰兒健康;基礎教育與識字;以及社區經濟發展。

 

自2021年7月1日開始,將接受計畫的獎助金申請。將尋求扶輪社員與其他人士的捐獻和承諾捐獻,為新的焦點領域提供全球獎助金的支持。

 

有關這一新焦點領域的更多訊息將會很快宣布。

 

Supporting the environment becomes a new area of focus
 

The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: supporting the environment.

 

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

 

Supporting the environment becomes Rotary's seventh area of focus, which are categories of service activities supported by global grants. It joins peacebuilding and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and community economic development.

 

Grant applications for projects will be accepted beginning on 1 July 2021. Gifts and commitments from Rotarians and others will be sought to provide global grant support for the new area of focus.

 

More information about this new cause will be announced soon.
