Thailand Water Project and Visit

One of the six initiatives that Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation promote worldwide is the provision of clean drinking water. Children living in remote rural areas of north east Thailand do not have access to clean drinking water which creates health issues resulting in loss of school days and non completion of school studies.

International Aid Project 2013: Nepal

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world with over 57% of its population living on less than US$2 per day.  It is landlocked between China & India, and with its mountainous topography it has insufficient infrastructure making it difficult to overcome this cycle of poverty.  Currently 60% of roads in Nepal become inoperable during the wet season and 63% of households do not have access to electricity.

Polio Plus

The Sydney City Rotaract has been an avid supporter of the Rotary goal to eradicate Polio.

After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Reaching the ultimate goal of a polio-free world presents ongoing challenges, not the least of which is a US$535 million funding gap through 2012. This is where the Sydney City Rotaract Club, and it’s goal to raise $50,000.00 towards the cause comes in!
