District Rotary 9800

International Projects


Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)

RAWCS can provide front end advice on projects, including needs assessment and cross-cultural strategies.  We can also put you in touch with clubs that may have set up projects in your intended country/area of activity for advice.

We can help link you with clubs for on-the-ground cooperation and to avoid duplication, overlap and wastage.  We will help obtain tax deductibility for eligible projects and provide free travel insurance for teams travelling overseas

Importantly, we can help you ensure sustainability of the benefits and impact of your projects.

World of Difference

World Of Difference powerfully portrays the work of Rotary in developing countries. We visit well resourced and well run Rotary supported projects. This contrasts with villages and schools in need of Rotary support. During visits we provide donations and volunteering. Each tour builds on the last to provide on going dental hygiene checks, English, knitting and craft classes.
