Dignity & Safety for Women in Cambodia


We are heavily involved in driving change for women in Cambodia. 


Kooyongkoot Alliance Plaque reveil uses RCEM Marquee

How was this for a great branding opportunity...........

Well done to our member Alick Osborne who very kindly lent our marquees for the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the Queen’s Jubilee tree planting in Markham Reserve, Ashburton. 'Kooyongkoot Alliance' President Graham Ross and Federal Member for Higgins Dr Michelle Ananda-Rajah did the honours. And it just happened that Michelle was guest speaker at our club the night prior. 😀 

Also present were Boroondara Mayor Cr Jane Addis and member-elect for Ashwood Matt Fregon. 

A few thousand more trees to plant next year. 🌳 

Breadtags for Wheelchairs - We're collecting

Save your plastic breadtags and turn them in to much needed Wheelchairs for the disadvantgaged mainly in South Africa. Tania is collecting them on behalf of the club where she then hands them over for them to be made into items that are then sold and funds transferred to wheelchairs for those in need.


Dignity for Women in Cambodia

Rotary Clubs of Chadstone/East Malvern and Port Philip together with the District program ‘World of Difference’ and the Rotary Foundation will create approximately 40 Washroom Toilets by rebuilding the structure of existing toilets.

Cambodia women are forced to bath themselves and their children in the open spaces because they do not have adequate facilities. Rotary is stepping in to change that!!


5000 People Raise a Glass to Rotary International

Over 5000 people in Cambodia will soon be drinking fresh water thanks to a Rotary International Global Grant and they will raise a glass of gratitude to Rotary International
