Rotary and the United Nations
Back in the 1930's a #Rotarian from Nashville TN, had the idea of developing "International Institutes of Understanding" to advance one of Rotary's causes, namely: to promote International Understanding and World Peace.
The concept grew to cities in #Texas and spread across the globe. It was a great success and was embraced by many senior world leaders, putting Rotary on the map.
So when US President Roosevelt and UK's Winston Churchill had the idea to convene a meeting to set up the #UN, they naturally wanted Rotary involved, because we were already doing what the intended UN purpose might be.
As a result, 49 Rotarians participated at the San Fransisco UN Charter meeting in 1945 where the organization was formed. It was a Rotarian who wrote the first draft of the UN Charter and a Rotarian was the second Secretary General.
Rotarians in #NewYork even played a role in locating and establishing the UN headquarters there. That is why Rotary and the United Nations have this strong partnership, working together to promote global health, harmony and peace.
Why not visit Croydon Rotary Club to meet and hear more about how #Rotarians and the Rotary International organisation are "making a difference" locally and internationally.
