Our club received a matching district grant to help the garden this year with various projects including a green house, worm farm, garden tools, picnic tables and so much more. Looking forward to our next 20 years of making a difference in our community and beyond.

Global Grant Scholar: Paige Buell
During my time as a Rotary Global Grant Scholar I completed a Masters in International Governance and Diplomacy with a concentration in human rights at Sciences Po Paris School of International Affairs. My studies were focused on peacebuilding and conflict mediation, specifically women’s participation in peace processes. Through interactions with peers and professors from all over the world, I feel I gained a much more diverse and well-rounded understanding of the sustaining peace ecosystem and the important role women have to play in it. This focus led me to a job with the Youth and Womens Empowerment Team within the Division for Peace at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. In my current position I will be supporting the design and implementation of training programs with the aim of increasing the representation of women at all levels of peace processes.
I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to build strong relationships with both my host, Paris Académies, and sponsor, Reno Central and Auburn Gold Country, Rotary clubs. The members of Paris Académies were continually welcoming and supportive, inviting me to their weekly meetings and club events. My sponsor clubs made this experience possible for me. They have become very important people in my life and their endless support and encouragement were huge factors in my success. I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with both clubs and providing them with any support they might need in the future.
