More and more Year 12 High School graduates are joining short
term Rotary Humanitarian Projects. which will increase their world view of
developing countries and the health, education, water or sanitation issues they
face due to lack of adequate facilities or funding or other circumstances.
Their school communities (which embrace local businesses, neighbours or
local citizens, local government councils, past students and parents) are
combining to fund these trips as they acknowledge the benefits which are
gained by everyone involved:- the volunteers, the often impoverished
communities with which they both assist and bond with, and the maturation
quickly reached by these experiences.
If you know a High School who is looking to follow the ever growing number of
examples that our RAWCS projects conduct in developing countries, provide
them this story or ask us to locate a Rotary club in your area.
