We participate in a wide variety of hands-on and fundraising projects in our local and international communities. Whether it be helping youth, the environment, the aged, people with disabilities or the less fortunate, providing humanitarian aid, providing equipment or funding for medical research, or helping other organisations and charities, we try to keep everyone's individual interests covered. We are always looking for new project ideas! We hold at least one major community service project and one major international service project every year.

Some of our recent projects and events include:

Donation of Soup Cups
We recently partnered with the Comedy Club and raised funds, which we used to purchase 50 soup mugs. These mugs have been donated to The Haven Centre (East Vic Park), who will distribute them to local people in need so they can get free soup refills from the Haven.

Clean Up Day
Members partnered with Rotarians from the Elizabeth Quay Rotary Club to clean up a local area in South Perth.

Wine Tour
Members and partners embarked on a tour of local wineries as a social activity and to farewell President Jasmine, who is moving overseas to pursue her career.

Education in Malawi
President Jasmine Beynon visited Africa over the Christmas break and met an inspiring young man, Banjo, who shared that he was trying to get all the local children to attend school. For many of these children, the only barrier to attending school was that they could not afford a uniform, paper and pencil, which are the only requirements to attend. We often volunteer at Rotary events with any donations from our support going towards the club funds. We decided to send some of these funds to Banjo and he purchased school supplies for the young people who were unable to attend school

Christmas at the Palace Arcade
We celebrated the end of the year at Palace Arcade, playing vintage video games, eating pizza and participating in stealing Santa.

Mandurah Rotaract Amazing Race
We love supporting other club events and headed down to Mandurah for a weekend away. On the Sunday we joined other Rotaractors and members of the public in Mandurah's amazing Race. 

Application Writing Workshop
Past Rotaractor and current Rotarian, Tristan Kolay, visited our club to share his knowledge on application writing. Members and guests bought their current resume along and came away with notes and suggestions to ensure they will be at the top of the list when they next apply for a new role. Rotaract, and the skills we learn as members, look great on a resume and are able to be applied in all other aspects of our lives.

Birthing Kit Packing
Members, along with Rotarians, past members, friends and family, came together to pack 200 birthing kits. These kits contain the most basic resources needed to help provide women in developing countries minimise the chance of birthing complications. We are very lucky here in Western Australia, with medical care easily available, so this is a great way for us to help people overseas who do not have access to this. We also celebrated our 45th birthday after the packing (see 'News' for more).

Trip to Sri Lanka
President Jasmine joined Rotaractors from Mount Lawley on a trip to Sri Lanka. They partnered with the local Rotaract club to educate local students about health and hygiene, whilst also getting a chance to explore.
