Rotary Prahran at RIMERN!
Rotary Prahran started RIMERN and with fifteen Rotary Club partners we now deliver around 8 full house lots of furniture, appliances and homewares to people setting up their secure homes in Inner Melbourne, after tough times experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, refugee displacement and more.
All the goods are donated from householders and businesses around Melbourne, collected, cleaned & rehomed by our wonderful team of volunteers. Want to know more? Visit the RIMERN website!
From Glen Allen School in Glen Waverley to Safe Haven in Siem Reap, these donated disability aids for children are changing lives!
Rotary Prahran has partnered with Rotary Kampala Kawempe to provide 500 mosquito nets to poor families in water sodden slums in Uganda. In the wet season, deadly mosquitos kill mainly children, so local Rotarians & Rotaractors have identified families in need and have delivered nets, education about preventing malaria and other essentials. Our Club was grateful for the support of a District 9800 International Grant to partly fund this life saving project in Kampala.
Rotary Prahran sponsors PHS Citizens Interact Club
Young leaders of tomorrow at Prahran High School have just formed the PHS Citizens Interact Club, under the guidance of Deputy Principal Shannan Roberts, the mentorship of District 9800 Interact Chair Chris Richardson and our Club.
Interactors from years 7 - 9 will develop their volunteering and community service projects around homelessness, animal welfare and other causes dear to their hearts, as they build skills in conducting meetings, taking leadership roles, developing projects and making friendships with other Interactors in Australia and around the world.
Rotary is a global organisation with diverse membership and Rotary Clubs are being encouraged to really represent the communities they serve. From it's beginnings as a businessmen's club in Chicago, Rotary looks & acts a lot differently today!
Rotary Prahran is now a member of RORP... Rotary Overseas Recycled Playgrounds, a project of Rotary Flemington Kensington that saves retired playgrounds from landfill by dismantling them, shipping them overseas to be rehomed thanks to Rotarians in developing countries.
