About Rotary Club of Monash
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Monash
Rotary is a global community of 1.2million business and community leaders of varying cultures and occupations committed to improving communities at the local, national and international levels.
Bringing together our passion and diverse experiences and perspectives, we exchange ideas and take action to empower, educate and develop youth, build goodwill and understanding between cultures, communities and countries, promote peace and resolve conflicts, prevent and treat disease, improve sanitation, maternal and child health, and develop economies and communities.
