Current Projects

Below are a sample of the projects undertaken by Rotarians in our district.  For more, click through our various Avenues of Service on the Left hand menu.


Community Service

Community Service covers exciting projects and activities that individual Clubs undertake to improve life in their communities through Rotary’s third Avenue of Service. Projects are as varied as the Clubs that carry them out, but all address the needs of their own community.

Clubs have the central role in the determination, funding and execution of Community Service programs and projects. Effective Community Service projects:

  • Are relevant to the community
  • Anchor a Club to its community
  • Identify and understand the key issues
  • Involve other organisations and stakeholders for best outcomes
  • Provide opportunities for promotion of Rotary and membership recruitment.

The Community Avenue of Service for District 9800 offers a range of District Endorsed and District Managed Programs, each led by an experienced program representative who are willing to assist Clubs.

Village Women and Children project

The Rotary Club of Kew’s soap-makers’ training program, established in 2005, is a successful grass-roots micro-economic initiative. It has provided village women with the ability to feed and clothe their children (in a country where infant mortality and malnutrition are amongst the highest in the world), and has also bolstered their self esteem and dignity.
