Programs | Rotary Australia World Community Service
Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) assists Rotary Clubs in Australia with the development and management of international community service projects.
Whether it's projects to help rebuild in the aftermath of disaster, programs to bring education to countries where illiteracy stifles development or bringing health care and medical aid to those who can least access it,
RAWCS so often has a hand in helping the world stand on its feet. RAWCS supports Rotary Clubs in sending teams of volunteers to developing countries to provide assistance upon the development of much needed facilities, especially within the health and education areas.
Advice, assistance and training in building, construction and commercial operations (for example, assistance in obtaining microfinance) are are also provided by RAWCS to support developing communities in establishing themselves.
Who's Behind It?
RAWCS is an Australian based program, run by people like you and me. Everyday people volunteer their time as Rotarians and Friends of Rotary to make each RAWCS project happen.
The contributions of everyday people just like yourself, along with fundraising and donations from Rotarians, corporate partners and other members of the public, enable these projects to go ahead.
Of course with Rotarians being community-service minded individuals who volunteer their time, donors can be assured that contributions made to RAWCS go directly to helping communities around the world.
