Rotary 100 Years

Our Centenary

In 2021, Rotary in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific will be 100 years old following the establishment of Rotary Clubs in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and Wellington in 1921. The Rotary Give Every Child A Future project will celebrate 100 years of service and in collaboration with UNICEF, we plan to vaccinate the most disadvantaged children and adolescent girls across the Pacific.

While there are many centenary project, Rotary Give Every Child A Future is the one project that involved all of Australasia and demonstrate that Rotary remains strong in today’s world. Everyone is encouraged to participate.
