The Rotary Club of Wahroonga

The Rotary Club of Wahroonga is one of the largest Rotary clubs in the north of Sydney, Australia in Rotary International District 9680. It currently has over 60 members from a wide range of occupations and backgrounds.

The Rotary Club of Wahroonga is proud to be a supporter of Sambhav Nepal’s multi-year schools improvement project in Nepal. The project has completely reconstructed and expanded the Bharibi Primary School, constructed a library at Dharapani Secondary School, extensively renovated Sitala Primary School and previously funded local teacher training.

In January 2011, a RAWCS volunteer teacher training team comprising two members of RC of Wahroonga, three other Rotarians and one non-Rotarian, travelled to Arupokhari following an initiative from the Rotary Club of Wahroonga to undertake a teacher training course.

The Club has also provided, during the current year, substantial funding to address needs identified during the January 2011 site visit, including:
– Additional books for the Dharapani Library
– For repairs to the toilets at Dharapani Lower Secondary
– For three months of English language and ESL training for the teachers

Planning is underway for a follow up RAWCS volunteer teacher training team in January 2012.
