Bio Toilets in India

Bhubaneswar is the capital of the Indian state of Odisha.  It is the largest city in Odisha and is a centre of economic and religious importance in Eastern India.  Bhubaneswar is often referred to as a "Temple City of India".
 
But ..... there are 338 unauthorised slums in Bhubaneswar  - many households do not have toilets and a few who have sanitary toilets have no drainage, water and maintenance facilities!!
 
Caloundra Rotary - in conjunction with others - has applied to The Rotary Foundation for a Global Grant to provide the major part of the US$31,500  project cost to provide 40 bio toilets in 20 urban slums.
 
Commitment by the Rotary Club of Caloundra US$5,000
 
 
Rotary Care Garden
The Rotary Clubs of Sunshine Coast South - in partnership with IFYS Foster Care - are developing and building a therapeutic environment in the form of a garden and play area for young people living in their care.
 
Commencing April, the $80,000 project is expeced to be completed by the end of 2018.
 
Anticipated commitment by the Rotary Club of Caloundra : up to $5,000
 

Japanese Peace Garden

A place of reflection and inspiration with a blend of Australian and Japanese plants is being planned within Coochin Park at Dicky Beach.
 
It will incorporate an educational component for visitors - a reminder that there are six Rotary Peace Centres around the world, including Brisbane and Tokyo.  Those two centres demonstrate the modern link between Australia and Japan.
 
Project in preliminary planning stage     Commitment by Calloundra Rotary hard to estimate at this stage

Charity Golf Day

Caloundra Rotary's Annual 'Charity Golf Day' event is our flagship fundraiser.  In 2018, we had over 140 golfers from around the Sunshine Coast play at Pelican Waters Golf Club.  We are proud to have been able to raise over $40,000 over the last three years for SunnyKids and other causes supported by the Rotary Club of Caloundra.
 
Pelican Waters Golf Club is home to the Sunshine Coast’s first ever Greg Norman designed Golf Course and the venue for the golf day.
 
We are looking forward to the 2019 Charity Golf Day and welcoming a new major beneficiary.
 
Swimming Scholarships
Fewer pre-school and primary school aged children cannot swim and there were 19 deaths from drowning last year in Queensland.
 
Caloundra Rotary is hoping to partner with one or more Sunshine Coast swim schools to help bridge the gap for needy families with children that need to learn how to swim.
