Rotary is 1.2 million passionate individuals in 35,000+ clubs worldwide. We are both an international organization and a local community leader. Together we lead change in our own backyards and across the world.
On this rainy Saturday morning, Rotary joined Gold Coast Catchment Association and Gold Coast City Council to plant 10,000 Trees in Robina Parklands area in the Gold Coast. In keeping with Rotary International President Ian Riseley’s call, our District Governor Darrell Brown led the Rotary & Rotaract team of 53 volunteers to plant two trees each for our 1225 Rotarians in our District 9640. Past District Governors Graham A Jones, Ian Yarker and Heather Yarker too joined this mega effort to save planet earth. Asst. District Governor Karen Wibberley did a super job to mobilize volunteers from 5 Rotary Clubs and our young Rotaractors to action. Rotary People of Action

Kerrie Brown has chosen ROMAC as her project for the year and using the catchy name "Stitches for Stitches" has made a decorative cushion for each club to use as a fundraising effort for ROMAC. Clubs are free to choose the method to utilise the cushion, but Kerrie hopes that every club will participate.

Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988.
In 2007, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation joined Rotary in its commitment to ending polio.
Since 2013, the Gates Foundation has matched every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication 2-to-1, up to $35 million per year.
Rotary, with matching funds from the Gates Foundation, has contributed more than $1.6 billion to end polio.
At hundreds of sites in Pakistan, teams of health workers verify that every child passing through receives the polio vaccine. Another child, another family, another generation is protected, and Pakistan moves one step closer to having zero polio cases.
