Rotary Club of Northbridge-WA, Australia

The Club currently contributes to the following organisations and current specific initiatives:
Birthing Kit Assembly Day - Saturday, 8th October, 9am-1pm (All Saints Church, Floreat)

No woman should die while giving life. Over 300,000 women die annually from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications. The majority of these are in developing countries. Kit International is an organisation dedicated to improving the conditions for women all over the world by providing clean Birthing Kits. Though each kit costs less than a cup of coffee, its simple contents provide the resources to reduce infection and fatalities.

We would like to that our volunteers for helping save the lives of mothers and babies.

Tourism Student Exchange - Rotary Club of Kelowna Ogopogo

For several years, the Club has worked with honorary Northbridge Rotarian Mark Dixon, a member of the Rotary Club of Kelowna-Ogopogo in British Columbia, Canada (District 5060), to facilitate the Rotary Adventures in Tourism student exchange between Australia and Canada to foster international fellowship and to promote tourism studies.

In each calendar year, the Club works with the staff of Central TAFE in Northbridge to select a student from their tourism course, who is then sent at the Club’s expense to Canada to study and experience their tourism industry. Likewise, a young Canadian tourism student travels to Australia each year to learn more about our country. Students participating in the exchange have described it as ‘amazing’ and the ‘trip of a lifetime’.

Bali Schools and Water Projects

Water Purification Plant Opening, Bali, Indonesia

With the co-operation and assistance of our friends at the Rotary Club of Bali Taman in Indonesia (District 3400) and the private contributions of Club members and friends of the Club, we have been able to fund the ongoing education of many elementary school students on the island of Bali to the north of Western Australia.

The Club has also funded five water purification systems for installation in schools and towns in Bali.  This has helped to greatly improve the lives of children in our nearest neighbour, many of whom lack access to clean water on a daily basis.

Water purification plants have been installed at the 10 Jl. Soka Kesiman Denpasar Elementary School and 7 Batubulan Elementary School in Bali, as well as at other locations.


ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.  If there are families in need of emergency shelter, ShelterBox does everything it can to help them rebuild their lives.

ShelterBox delivers the essentials people need to begin rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of a disaster. When they send boxes, each one is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito nets and a children’s activity pack.

In the past few years, Rotary Northbridge has paid for several boxes to be sent to disaster areas.

Full of initiative
Interplast is a not-for-profit organisation working to improve the quality of life for people with disability who are disabled as a result of congenital or acquired medical conditions such as cleft lip and palate or burn scar contractures. They do this by sending fully qualified Australian and New Zealand volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to the Asia Pacific region to provide free surgical treatment for patients who would otherwise not be able to afford access to such services.

Rotary Northbridge has contributed to this worthy project for several years, enabling many medical practitioners to carry on work in Asia and the Pacific.

In addition to the above, the Club supports such worthwhile causes as the McCusker Alzheimer’s Research Foundation, the Cancer Council Western Australia and St Vincent de Paul’s Passages project with donations.
