The Rotary Club of Hawthorn focuses on two major longer term projects.  Our current projects for the period 2014 to 2019 are:
  • International - provide assistance to the Baguia District in East Timor.  There will be a focus on Education and Health projects.  Our 5-year program will provide scholarships for university, technical trades and high school students, fund teacher training programs, and provide water tanks for clean drinking and cooking water. Longer term projects include the rehabilitation of schools and providing new toilet blocks.  Our club has partnered with the Friends of Baguia organisation.
    Project Sponsor:  RCH Director - International Service and Foundation.
  • Local - setup a Rotary Opportunity Centre to help the homeless, long-term unemployed, drug addicted individuals that are committed to turn their life around.  The Centre aims to provide programs for small groups resulting in participants gaining employment and a suitable place to live.
