Resources for Rotarians
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO ENDTRACHOMA?
This is a very significant project in Rotary Australia's history, and Australia's history.
There is work to do!
1. CONTACT YOUR DISTRICT TRACHOMA CHAMPION
Our Australian Centennial project needs your support on the ground to mobilise Rotarians and communicate the value of our project to clubs and communities.
We have recruited 18 out of 21 District Trachoma Champions to engage club support across Australia to EndTrachoma by 2020. If you are interested in working with us, with Rotary International President 2017-18 Ian Riseley and Zone Director Noel Trevaskis, with Rotary clubs around Australia to Make a Difference to communities within our own country, and make history in Rotary in Australia, and history in Australia, contact your District's Trachoma Champion to find out how.
Keep scrolling down to find out who the champion for your district is.

STAMP OUT TRACHOMA
SOLVE THIRST WORLD PROBLEMS
We have partnered with charity The Wateryard to make it easier for Rotarians and their clubs to support us. Do good in Australia simply by making your next wine purchase here!
Whether it's your next drink, gift, raffle prize, or event beverage, the Wateryard can provide top quality wines from 5-star Australian vineyards and help EndTrachoma by 2020. Dominic Monckton, CEO of the Wateryard is also available for wine-tasting fundraisers.
Check out www.thewateryard.com for more information.
Many clubs have so far been incredibly innovative in their awareness and fundraising activities: a dress-up film evening, a Peony Picnic Harvest, a Grand Prix Classic Car Tour and Party, a Casino night... even the proceeds of a BBQ will go a long way!
Only together can we make the greatest impact to prevent trachoma and other infectious diseases, to provide for the basic right to sight through functional and safe environments.
