Support

There are several ways you can help out in the various programs.

In Australia there are employment opportunities with many organisations. They can be permanent positions, or there are also short term and locum opportunities available.

Volunteering can be done in Australia as well as in overseas projects. These are usually short visits. Generally overseas volunteers pay all their own expenses including travel and accommodation. In Australia some volunteer organisations are able to offer transport and local accommodation support.

Donations of funds are always well received for volunteer projects! Financial donations to Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) projects attract a tax benefit for Australian residents. Other projects might also have these benefits, it’s worth checking before you donate.

Donations of equipment are a bit of a challenge.  In a nutshell, donated equipment must be in good working order, operate with simple controls, have servicing and instruction manuals, and expect another working life of at least 10 years.

If not then it will be too costly to ship elsewhere only to end up in landfill in a country most likely to be without good waste disposal systems.

One of the recipients of the latest round of funds raised by TT’s helpers to support post-earthquake reconstruction in Nepal. Arjun and his family have lived in a rudimentary shelter for more than 4 years; our subsidy has allowed him to finally build this small home, completed this week. Arjun is of the BK caste, considered one of the lowest and untouchable castes. One of my always-memories is the moment his piercing eyes of deep gratitude melted my insides as I handed him the key to his family toilet in 2014. Dignity. ...

Young Prem, all materials to this building site are brought in by manual labour ...
