The Rotary Friendship Exchange Program provides a means through which Rotarians in one part of the world can experience life in another country or culture. Its goal is to advance international understanding and goodwill through person-to-person connections across national boundaries. This month, over 25 members of Nigeria’s Rotary D 9140 visited Chicago Heights City Hall through the Rotary Friendship Exchange. During the week spent in Chicago, the Rotarians visited the Chicago Gospel Fest and toured the DuSable Museum of African American History. They also visited Chicago’s City Hall and spent a day meeting with Rotarians that share their vocations or classifications.
These international visits are meant to broaden perspectives and build relationships that may translate into service opportunities, occupational opportunities, or grant partnerships. They also help to further Rotary’s goals of understanding and peace through developing friendships.
