Welcome to Partnering for Peace
Partnering for Peace (PFP) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization with a goal of fostering partnerships between Rotary International and the United States Peace Corps. You will find examples of Rotary-Peace Corps projects and many ideas for ways to increase our collective impact globally.
A formal partnership was first established in 2015 and was recently renewed. This agreement was inspired by a group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) Rotarians in District 5450. The heart of the agreement is that Peace Corps and Rotary have almost identical goals and create greater good working side by side.

On February 24th, 2022, Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale military assault on Ukraine, including attacks on civilians. Many of our friends and family members have fled; many others are staying and fighting to defend their communities.
Ukraine RPCVs have rapidly mobilized to assist our Ukrainian friends, family members, colleagues, and communities. We are advocating, sending donations of money and supplies, engaging mass media, and directly assisting friends in need of transportation, housing, and money to survive.
