Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change

- across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves

This month's theme is Economic and Community Development
Nearly 1.4 billion employed people live on less than $1.25 a day. Our members promote economic and community development and reduce poverty in underserved communities through training, well-paying jobs, and access to financial management institutions. Projects range from providing people with equipment to vocational training. Our members work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

Join Rotary and help grow local economies around the world.
Give now to promote economic growth in communities.

Lindsay May OAM District 9685 Governor
On 18-19th March, we attended the annual District Conference, themed "Navigating Change. COVID has been obstructive in the last couple of years for our Conferences, but this time it was all GO. Held at HQ West in Rooty Hill, this flamboyant Conference Centre, Hotel and RSL Club proved to be a great venue for some 450 Rotarians. It was so good to see everyone and renew networks and friendships. what we also reflected on that the community work has been still carried on despite COVID.  
Whilst at one level it was a social event, there was a serious side with our community work. The Young Australian of the Year, Dr Daniel Nour, spoke about his work in setting up Street Side Medics, bringing on-the-ground medical support to homeless and disadvantaged people. What an inspiration he is.
The second highlight of the Conference was hearing from the iconic athlete Louise Sauvage OAM (shown below being interviewed by Stephanie Brantz) who relived some of her Paralympic sporting achievements. What a determined, purposeful person she is.
A great Conference and congratulations to DG Lindsay May and the Conference team.
