Rotary Club of Southbank has over many years supported, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Bali Taman, Indonesia, and the Rotary Foundation, a number of projects delivering water to remote villages and addressing needs of Women's Health to the Bali community.
Bali's economy is very dependent on tourism so challenges such as the Bali Bombing in 2002 and the recent eruption of Mount Agung have a deep impact on this community.These projects were initiated following the Bali Bombings in 2002 when Rotary Club of Southbank raised over $100,000 in donations and a trust fund was established to support the long term needs of the community in Bali.
Since this time, projects have been implemented in partnership with our sister club, The Rotary Club of Bali Taman and continue to be supported by visits from members to Bali.With funds contributed from Rotary Club of Southbank and the Rotary Foundation through Global Grant #1635710, the Rotary Club of Bali Taman are currently performing a combination of pap smear tests, Women's health education and IVA tests (In vitro activation) to support women's health needs on the island. The project aligns itself with Rotary's focus area of maternal and child health.
The target for 12 months of operations for the 2017-18 year includes 520 pap smears, 2600 IVA tests, and education of 3120 women in women's health issues which to date is about 50% achieved.

Melbourne Convention Centre.
In 2018, in a First for Rotary in Australia, 4 Districts will come together to hold a combined District Conference.
Four Districts from Across Victoria will be joining together to run a multi-district conference. This is a first for Australia and possibly for Rotary worldwide.
There is only one place capable for hosting this event - The expanded Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The MCEC offers a plenary capable of seating 2,500 people, multiple spaces for seperate stream and breakout sessions, all within the one venue overlooking the Yarra River and the city of Melbourne.
The multi-distict conference has attracted the interest of the wider Rotary world, with high class speakers willing to attend - Their messages will be inspirational. You will hear how they connect and transform communities, locally and internationally. You will also be entertained and enthralled by the varied program over the course of the weekend.
The Rotary showcase will take place in the exhibition centre allowing multiple ways of displaying projects from across Victoria, allowing Rotarians from across our state to connect up with like minded people.
We are One Rotary. In conjunction with the Multi-district conference, a youth forum for those aged 18-40 and an Interact forum will be held. The youth forum's vision is to engage, empower, and inspire youth to strengthen their communities. Rotaractors and youth across Victoria will be encouraged to work with Rotary Clubs after the conference.
Registrations will be open on July 1st 2018.
