RAWCS is a Multi-District project of Rotary in Australia which can assist and support Rotary Clubs and Districts in their endeavours in International Service. The purpose of District 9800 RAWCS Committee is to encourage district clubs to develop and implement International Service Projects and to provide advice and support as requested and required. General and detailed advice on project identification, design, planning and implementation is available. Assistance with fundraising, tax deductibility and introductions to 9800 Clubs interested in developing shared projects is provided. Assistance and advice to volunteers interested in working on projects abroad is given.
If your Club members have any Blankets, Sleeping bags or Swags that you no longer require please donate them and help Rotary help others.
RAWCS can provide front end advice on projects, including needs assessment and cross-cultural strategies. We can also put you in touch with clubs that may have set up projects in your intended country/area of activity for advice.
We can help link you with clubs for on-the-ground cooperation and to avoid duplication, overlap and wastage. We will help obtain tax deductibility for eligible projects and provide free travel insurance for teams travelling overseas
Importantly, we can help you ensure sustainability of the beneﬁts and impact of your projects.
