Around District  9800

As an initial project, “Project W, Water for Education” has partnered with Rotary Keilor East, Rotary Passport Melbourne (RPM), Disaster Aid Australia, and Cambodia Rural Students Trust (CRST), an NGO in Siem Reap, to install Australian-made SkyHydrant filtration systems in four rural schools. 

At an average cost of $5,000 per school (or around $0.35 per year), clean water can be provided to the whole school population. 

Thanks to the support of a District Grant and Rotary Daylesford, the students of the Daylesford Dharma School now have a “Meditation Garden” consisting of herb and tea plantings: a garden that engenders a calm and peaceful environment and quiet contemplation. 

District 9800 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is returning as a face to face program in February 2022. RYLA is a leadership program for young people aged 18 to 25 which focuses on personal growth, leadership development and community.

After delivering a successful online program in early 2021, we are delighted to be delivering our week-long residential program at Camp Getaway in Axedale, Victoria from Sunday February 13th to Saturday February 19th 2022.
