Scholarship scheme

There is a shortage in the Illawarra of workers in aged care and, as a community, we need to try and address this issue. As a community we need to also ensure we provide assistance to a wide range of people, in this case, to people of refugee background. 
Over the previous 12 months the RC (Rotary Club) of Dapto has been researching the development of a Scholarship Scheme to address these needs.

Dapto Rotary Community Garden

We have identified that there are people in the local area that lack an understanding of a nutritional diet and access to cost effective, nutritional foods. So to address this issue we are going to develop a community garden at Marshal Mount and following the growing of fruit and vegetables we will then support participants to be able to prepare cost effective, nutritional meals based on what they have produced.

Stronger together

Posted by Julie Collareda
On 14 May 2019 the Rotary Club of Dapto in partnership with CareWays Community held an evening to bring together service providers in the Dapto area. The idea of the workshop was for community groups to come together to share ideas on how we can make Dapto a better place to live and work. To discover more about the community, identify key areas of need where we can focus our efforts and perhaps by sharing information begin to work more closely together on projects to achieve better, more timely results.

Raising money for Rotary Oceanic Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC) by walking around Lake Illawarra from Tallawarra to Lakeside Drive. On the 18 November 2018, The Rotary Club of Dapto was involved in the Waterline Challenge. The Waterline Challenge was an Australia wide event designed to raises money to assist those who face adversity. The ‘Challenge’ was for the participating teams to accumulate sufficient kilometres so they could have circumnavigated Australia’s entire coastline during the week of the event and raise funds for their chosen charity.

India celebrates three years without polio

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
