We conduct a wide variety of projects within our local community, and also respond to requests to help in other parts of Western Australia or across Australia.
Our Rotary Club has a wide range of projects related to the development of youth and young adults.
Assisting the underprivileged
We regularly assist individuals or communities whose needs are not being met elsewhere, or other non-profit organisations who are providing assistance but themselves need help either financially, through donations-in-kind or with being linked up with other contacts who can provide the assistance they need.
One such group we regularly work with is Bev and John Lowe, formerly of Manna Industries, but now of Moort Care.
We have also supported 12 Buckets, which helps children in low socio-economic schools.
A new project that we are commencing is to provide free Wills to people who have less than $150,000 in assets, as dying without a Will can cause difficulties for their remaining family members.
In addition to Kids Right2See, where we have been providing free eye screening to primary school children in local schools, a couple of new health-related projects are currently underway.
We will shortly be commencing a Music for Dementia project, and a related project called MARVEL will also make use of music therapy for seniors.
