Rotary Youth Exchange

Spending time abroad as a Rotary Exchange Student is a great opportunity for students to experience a new culture, a new language, to be an ambassador for Rotary and Tasmania and to build lifelong friendships.

“An exchange is when a stranger becomes family, foreigners become friends, a second language becomes like your first, and a year suddenly becomes a day”

The YEP program is an International exchange for young people between the ages of 15 – 18. The exchange is for a 12 month period during which time the student is hosted by 3-4 families.

Rotary Australia Compassionate Grants (RACG) projects.

Dick Smith has made a $1,000,000 donation to Rotary which will be distributed to disadvantaged Australians identified by local Rotary clubs or Rotary districts as being worthy of financial assistance.

RACG is being managed by the Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (RABS) and their RABS criteria for project registration is that the project provides direct relief to people in need. If the intended recipients are disadvantaged, the relief should target that disadvantage. The concept of disadvantage is unlimited and could arise from sickness, suffering, distress, misfortune, disability, destitution, helplessness or poverty, any aspect of the negative side of the human condition.
Funds can only be directed to people in need or benefits can only be directed to a section of a community rather than the community as a whole. A project should arouse compassion within the community.

Rotary Tasmania Clubs support  a wide variety of activities…To highlight some of them …

 Gamma Probe for  North-West Hospitals

Rotary has strengthened cancer diagnostic services on the North-West Coast of Tasmania  by donating a gamma probe which will enable cancer specialists to determine if a cancer has spread to the draining lymph node.


Dr James Roberts-Thompson (left) and PDG John Dare with the gamma probe.

This can enable patients to survive longer.

Gamma probes don’t come cheaply, at around $58,000. RC Devonport North kicked off the fundraising and they were supported by RC’s Smithton, Somerset, Ulverstone, Devonport and Devonport South East.
To cover the gap in funding to secure the gamma probe, an application was made to The Rotary Foundation for a Global Grant. Most successful Global Grant applications by Australian Rotary clubs have been for overseas projects, so this one is different in benefiting Australians.

Rotary District 9980 in the South Island of New Zealand were large financial contributors to the grant.



Projects in Nepal

Rotary Tasmania, District 9830,   recently signed a District Relationship Agreement between our District and District 3292 in Nepal.   A closer relationship has resulted and a number of joint projects between our two Districts are being undertaken. Another group of Tasmanian Rotarians are visiting Nepal in February  201.7

‘Gift of Sight’ Eye Project, Nepal

“They came most partially blind, some totally blind; but with hardly an exception they departed with vision restored.”

Eye camp Nepal

We are making a difference

This project is conducted by the Rotary Club of Hetauda in November and February and Rotary Tasmania has welcomed the opportunity to provide funding.  Those Rotarians able to attend a camp will not forget the look of amazement and joy on the face of a blind person able to see again.
