Schools are critical sites for water and sanitation systems, and excellent launching pads for community service projects with a big impact. Matti Urho, past governor of District 1410 (=C5land Islands; part of Finland), had that in mind when he went to the RI Web site to search for water projects based in schools. The one he found eventually led to a 2006 Rotary Foundation Matching Grant project involving the Rotary Club of Livingstone, Zambia, and District 9210 (Malawi; part of Mozambique; Zambia; Zimbabwe).

Joseph Hongo of Kenya has long envisioned 'a new world order shaped not by military and political might but tolerance and mutual understanding, where issues of human security and development take center stage.'
He says his Rotary World Peace Fellowship to study at the University of Queensland in Australia, beginning in February 2009, echoes that ideal.
