goodbye polio croppedRotary Adelaide has been serving the local, Australian and international community for 100 years.

Internationally, we fund water treatment plants in Sri Lanka, support projects in Serbia, Nepal, Philippines, India, Timor Leste, PNG and Tonga.

Within Australia, we support the National Science and Engineering Challenge, provide Nurture Kits as a small gesture of thanks to frontline health workers and support the Hutt Street Centre, Migrant Resource Centre and Indigenous student education scholarships.
