We help people in the local community through to assisting in global projects.Rotary is particularly good at moving fast in times of disaster and because we have clubs almost everywhere is a natural first respondent. Some of our projects are listed below:

BackPacks4SA Kids is a charity that provides clothes and personal supplies to children placed in emergency foster care, kinship and domestic violence shelters. The backpacks they provide help to relieve some of the uncertainty children face when they are removed from their family, often in traumatic situations and without the opportunity to take any personal belongings along with them. Their aim is to provide a backpack full of useful items that these children, from newborn babies through to young adults, can call their own, providing reassurance and comfort from their changing worlds.           

The Rotary Club of Kidman Park has so far provided shelving for their packing centre, 150 pairs of pyjamas and 60 backpacks with more on the way.
Bookmart - Located in the Westlakes Library, selling second hand books with all proceeds going to local charities. Donations of books are very welcome.

The club has a BBQ trailer that we use for fundraising activities as well as support local community events.

Members of the Club volunteer at the Semaphore Carousel to raise money for Rotary Projects

KickStart for Kids is a not for profit charity which helps disadvantaged school children in South Australia. They provide breakfast and lunch programs and a mentoring program. They make a difference in an underprivileged school child's life tomorrow.

The Rotary Club of Kidman Park Rotary Club provides funds to support this charity and meets regularly to make sandwiches for school students.

Fred Hollows had a vision of ending avoidable blindness. With the help of our partners and supporters, The Foundation is working to make Fred’s vision a reality. An estimated 32.4 million people around the world today are blind and another 191 million  are visually impaired. Simple interventions, such as inexpensive medication and surgery, can restore people’s sight, productivity and livelihoods, giving lasting benefits for individuals, their families and whole communities. Half of global blindness is caused by cataracts – a clouding of the lens of the eye that can be treated by a simple surgical procedure – and the World Bank has identified cataract surgery as one of the most cost-effective of all public health interventions. The Foundation focuses on the comprehensive treatment of cataract blindness, but we also tackle other causes of blindness, including trachoma and refractive error. Since its formation in 1992 The Foundation has helped restore sight to well over 1 million people

The Rotary Club of Kidman Park through holding a successful quiz night and silent auction in conjunction with Bunnik Tours raised $20,000 for this worthwhile cause.

This was an opportunity for our members to work together and give a disabled person in a developing country a chance to gain employment and live a fuller life. This project will had our members working together to  assemble prosthetic hands. The hands come in 34 pieces and each couple needed to follow instructions to put them together. A photo of the builders and a message from them are included with the hand and delivered to the recipient. It took two people approximately two hours each to construct a hand.
