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.

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.

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.
