International Service is a major part of our Rotary Club. We have a significant involvement in the following programs:


  • PolioPlus – the leading international program to eradicate polio from the world

  • 3H Program – which focuses of Hunger, Health and Humanity

  • Shelterbox provision physical aid superpacks for use in disaster relief

  • Literacy and Numeracy programs

  • Rotary Australia World Community Service. Through Donations in Kind the club provides Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands with hospital equipment, medical supplies, school desks, pharmaceuticals and reconditioned computers

  • Rotarians Against Malaria. This involves the distribution of insecticide treated bed nets to prevent the spread of malaria

  • Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC) brings children up to 15 years of age from developing countries to Australia to treat diseases and/or injuries using surgical procedures that are not available in their own countries

  • The Ambassadorial Scholar Program is the largest Rotary Program and provides postgraduate study for students who have completed their under-graduate degrees and are seeking advanced post-graduate studies. The funds to enable students to complete their studies in a foreign country are met by the Rotary Foundation. Kenmore Rotary is both a Sponsor and Host Club for students under this program.

  • The Peace Fellowship Program is focused on conflict resolution and is managed through 6 Peace Centres worldwide. Students participating in the scholarship program undertake postgraduate studies and will return to their countries of origin to provide benefits gained at the Peace Centres. Kenmore Rotary has been an active participant, both as a sponsor and host club.
