Emily Nabakooza  is a Ugandan Rotary Peace Fellow.  Emily gained her Masters in Peace Studies degree just three years ago at the University of Queensland. She returned to her home city of Kampala Uganda and founded her Assisi Centre for Social Justice and Peace. The website explains the Centre’s mission and current projects.  
Here in District 9705 in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory many clubs have been supporting the Assisi Centre financially. We have also been greatly assisted by two Rotary Foundation District 9705 Grants to support Emily’s vital work in poverty alleviation, sanitation, school food program, classroom restoration and recently getting 50 teenage mothers back into school after their babies were born. We are most grateful for these empowering grants from the Foundation.
As requested by the Rotary Club of Canberra, Emily has just made an exceptional documentary on the last two years of work done.  Click on the photo of the little girl to view the video. It comes to us via the We Transfer system. I believe that what Emily has recorded in this seventeen minute video encapsulates everything you wrote in the article in RDU about the need to empower and lead the next generation of peace builders. She has ticked all your boxes and provided in this video a very valuable tool for the Rotary Foundation to communicate its message to Clubs and Districts around the world.
Two President Elect Training Seminars (PETS) are offered in 2022.  They are identical seminars and President Elects can choose which one best suits them.  One will be held in Cowra on the 19th and 20th February and the other on Cooma on the 5th and 6th March.  It is mandatory for all President Elects to attend PETS.
If you have any questions or experience any difficulty with your registration please contact Rob Uhl on ‭0418 459 049‬
