Our members are women and men aged in their 20s to 80s from a diverse background of nationalities.
Microscopes in Schools
Our signature project has seen more than 190,000 students discover the microscopic world with some 17,500 microscopes in 600 schools sponsored by over 100 Rotary Clubs.
No child needs to feel lonely, with the buddy benches we make and donate to schools.
Supporting tomorrow's leaders
Our many youth projects include sponsoring applicants to attend a variety of Rotary-run camps and seminars, presenting awards to primary schools and much more.
We provide free eye screening checks for 5 and 6 year olds at primary schools throughout the Perth metropolitan areas.
Launched in 2008, we are a modern, active club of community-minded women and men aged in their 20s to 80s with a vision of world peace and the drive to make it happen.
Our Rotary Club meets weekly on a Wednesday evening for 1 hour in the metropolitan Perth suburb of Mount Claremont to plan and execute meaningful projects here in Western Australia and overseas. All our club meetings are live streamed on Facebook, to help you stay connected even if you can't physically attend.
What sets Rotary Clubs apart from other non profit organizations is our fundamental code of ethics (known as the "Four Way Test") and the fact that every cent raised for a cause goes directly to that project.
If you would like to make a difference, locally or globally, why not join us?
With over 5,500 children in foster and residential care / group homes in Western Australia, there are some kids that may go without this Christmas.
Our club is again hosting a donation drive for Care Bags. If you would like to donate a stocking (182g $5.00 ea) or unwrapped gift, you will help bring a smile to the dial of kids who need it more than you will ever know.
If you’d prefer to donate money, a Care Bags personal shopper can purchase gifts or stockings for you. They typically spend around $30 on each child, however you’re welcome to donate an unwrapped gift of any size or value. Feel free to throw in a roll of wrapping paper and tape!
