3.1. International special projects
International Special Projects
Special Projects is working to lift the profile of our District in the international arena. We are aware of a number of Clubs who have undertaken work internationally and we want to expand this effort.
The first step is to develop a strategic plan or map, in consultation with Clubs. This will include a list of projects (international or within Australia) which we can develop, support and encourage to apply for grants.
Our District is following the RI platform for both international work and those projects chosen to benefit the Australian population, particularly in our Indigenous population. The team will concentrate on the seven areas of focus:
- Clean water, sanitation and hygiene
- Fighting disease
- Savings mothers and children
- Supporting education
- Growing local economies
- Promoting peace
- Environment and sustainability
