Information for Clubs
The Rotary Foundation
This is Rotary’s “charity” arm. Tasmanian Rotary Clubs through individual Rotarian’s efforts gave over $115 000 in the previous Rotary year. Some of this money (60%) is returned to the District and is available to Clubs through the grant scheme.
Foundation grants support Rotarians’ efforts to change lives and serve communities. Through District grants we are able to assist clubs and the district to address immediate needs in their local communities, nationally and abroad provided they are aligned with the Foundation’s mission of, “Doing good in the World”.
Clubs in Tasmania support …

Projects in Nepal
District 9830, Tasmania, 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.
‘Gift of Sight’ Eye Project, Nepal
“They came most partially blind, some totally blind; but with hardly an exception they departed with vision restored.” Reported from our February 2013 visit . Visits will occur each February.
This project is conducted by the Rotary Club of Hetauda in November and February each year and our district has welcomed the opportunity to provide funding. We are making a difference and 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.
Hetauda Support Project, Hetauda, Nepal
A project to provide fresh drinking water to a secondary school, construct a toilet block for a technical training centre and other community projects to improve health and education of the community of Hetauda, Nepal.

Food Plant Solutions – formerly Learn ♦ Grow Program
Global food shortages are looming as the single greatest threat to mankind! But there is a simple solution food plants that grow and thrive naturally where they are best adapted.
Food Plant Solutions is a visionary project based on the lifetime work of agricultural scientist, Bruce French, from Tasmania. He has compiled the world’s most comprehensive food plant database.
Food Plant Solutions prime objective is to provide resources, information and technical support to food aid providers so they can help people in need learn about and grow the best local plants to match their nutritional needs.
Food Plant Solutions is a project of Rotary District 9830 which is utilising the global network of Rotary International to realise the huge potential that this solution offers.
This project can truly help the hungry feed themselves.

Rotary Response to Disasters
Rotary International in Australia sees it’s major role in disasters as a “second line ” approach. Rotary will normally leave first response to the emergency authorities.
Our role is seen to be in the recovery process. With Rotary Clubs spread throughout most areas that experience disasters we are well equipped to support recovery initiatives after the immediate disaster has passed.
However there are two Rotary endorsed organisations that do support immediate emergency relief world wide
DISASTER AID AUSTRALIA
