RAWCS projects must be sponsored by an Australian Rotary Club or District and, where possible endorsed/partnered with a Rotary Club overseas. The exception is RABS projects that are local and are sponsored/administered by the same Rotary Club/District. If your Club is registering an international project and needs help, please contact the Regional Projects Supervisor or your District RAWCS Co-ordinator.

HEERA – Health & Education Equipment Repurposing Activity

HEERA, which commenced 1 Jan 2019, is a 12 months trial for Donations in Kind (DIK) Eastern Region to be re-established with the aim of creating a business model, that is sustainable, self-funding and in accordance with RAWCS Policies & Procedures moving forward.

The object of HEERA is to enable Rotarians, the public and the corporate sector to deliver humanitarian aid and charitable support through its activities.

HEERA’s role is to provide humanitarian aid through the provision of our ‘end of life’ equipment. The focus is Health & Wellbeing, Education & Literacy and Vocational. The aid must be effective for the long term, sustainable, enhance people’s lives and give Rotarians and others satisfaction for their efforts. New features include on-line inventory and container registration. At the end of the trial a review will be undertaken and if it is deemed successful consideration will be given, in consultation with other regions, of expanding the model nationally.
