Turramurra Rotary Club is a diverse group of professional, business and community members, men and women, who act to make a difference by serving and giving something back to the community. Together, we see a world where people connect, unite and take action to create lasting change for good - in our communities, across the world and in ourselves.
After a massive storm thousands of starfish were stranded on a beach and a little girl, seeing them stranded, began to throw them back into the water one by one. As she did so an old man walked by.
"Little girl, little girl, can't you see there are thousands of starfish stranded. You'll never make a difference," he said.
"I can for this one," she replied, throwing another starfish back into the water.
This is the philosophy Ku-ring-gai Rotary. The challenges locally and globally are huge, but by rolling up our sleeves and using the Rotary network which ensures every dollar goes where it's supposed to we can make a whole host of small differences and those small differences add up. For example, we assisted in the first East Timor Rotary Youth Leadership Program. One of our members helped oversee the first course in Dili. We also sent two young Australian volunteers to Uganda where, with the support of the local Rotary Club of M'kono they helped the local people build a much needed school.
"We can for this one."
We believe: "It is the responsibility of each Rotarian to prepare the next generation – all young people up to the age of 30 – by improving their life skills to ensure a better future. We undertake projects that support the fundamental needs of Youth: health, human values, education, leadership and self development."
