106 Areas of TRF Focus Peace and conflict prevention/resolution Disease prevention and treatmentWater and sanitationMaternal and child healthBasic education and literacyEconomic and community development
11Promoting PeaceToday, 42 million people are displaced by armed conflict or persecution.Through our partnerships with several leading universities, Rotary Peace Fellows developthe skills to strengthen peace efforts,train local leaders to prevent and mediate conflict,support long-term peace building in areas affected by conflict.We provide up to 100 peace fellowships per year at Rotary Peace Centres
12Fighting diseaseMore than 100 million people are pushed into poverty each year because of medical costs.We aim to improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in underdeveloped areas.Our members educate and mobilize communities to help prevent the spread of major diseases such as polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria.Many of our projects ensure that medical training facilities are located where the workforce lives.
13Providing clean waterMore than 2.5 million people lack access to adequate sanitation facilities.At least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water.Our projects give communities the ability todevelop and maintain sustainable water and sanitation systems andsupport studies related to water and sanitation.
14Saving mothers and children At least 7 million children under the age of five die each year due to malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation.To help reduce this rate, we provideimmunizations and antibiotics to babies,improve access to essential medical services,support trained health care providers for mothers and their children.Our projects ensure sustainability by empowering the local community to take ownership of health care training programs.
15Supporting educationSixty-seven million children worldwide have no access to educationMore than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate.We aim to strengthen the capacity of communities tosupport basic education and literacy,reduce gender disparity in education,and increase adult literacy.
16Growing local economies Nearly 1.4 billion employed people live on less than $1.25 a day.We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and develop opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old.We also help strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

For the Foundation to support increasing requests for grants to serving an ever increasing world need, the Foundation’s Annual Programs fund needs to grow.It is with Rotarian’s generosity that we can achieve this noble effort.The stronger the APF is, the stronger our Educational and Humanitarian programs will be, and the more lives Rotary can touch in a positive way.Contributions to The Australian Rotary Foundation Trust are tax deductible.26
