Restoring a smile restores dignity

How dental care people recover from domestic violence

Dr Jacinta Vu, Healing Smiles, Perth Western Australia

Many women are unable to afford the high costs of dental treatment after suffering abuse, and over time this impacts self-esteem and job opportunities for the future.

By working with a number of women’s refuge agencies, case workers and a strong network of volunteers, we can assist women in each step during the course of dental treatment and beyond

Purchase a drink at the Subiaco Petanque Club at 5:45 pm on Tue 7 May 2024. Dr. Vu will speak at 6 pm.

Satish More - his inspirational project and his dream

Posted by Cheryl Jennings
Satish More is our newest Club Member. Satish brings International and Vocational service to our club. He's a human resources management consultant with decades of
experience in technology, electronics, manufacturing, and engineering industries.  
He comes from a small village in India, USAR KHURD. There is no railway station near to USAR Khurd. Nearest is nearly 10 km away. The size of the area is about 8.89 square
kilometres.  Satish is a HR expert and consultant. Among his many work place roles they can include industrial relations, discipline and determination, acquisition and retention of good
employees and involvement with Maritime Union of Australia. 
The Project now - Satish and his family set about building a school. It had a 20km catchment radius. Kids arrived at school on push bikes, bull carts and some walked for 3 hours. The
boarding arrangement was provided free of charge and provided food and accommodation. Satish personally sponsored 20 students per annum, who received fees, uniform, books
and boarding for those who could not travel daily. Scholarships provided for 10 students.
At one point he offered scholarships for 10 students to come to University in Western Australia thinking cost may be $20K but this in reality blew out to $60K. Satish works for a gold
mining company and put forward a proposal for the company to pay for 2 students. They offered 50% for 2 students. Satish picked up 30% and 2 friends the remaining 20%. Students
finished studies and gained employment. Now sponsoring kids in village.
The Dream - Vision for 2025 is to deliver the WA curriculum and provide vocational education. School will have athletics school, swim school, tennis academy and cricket academy.
Talented students get opportunity to study in Australia. Teacher training in English, Maths & Science Curriculum will be provided by SCSA for 2 months and they will return after 3
months to ensure it is working. His Goal is to provide world class education when parents are often limited in what they can provide. Re sustainability, talking to a pharmaceutical
company.

Wonderful Wine Tasting

Our Weekend Wine Tasting was Wonderful

And how could it not be with such a variety of wines on offer during the afternoon? Over 150 people enjoyed the wines, sat on the balcony and enjoyed the balmy atmosphere at the Perth Flying Squadron on the first day of Spring.
 
At the end of the afternoon we collated the votes and were very pleased to announce that Juniper Estate was the crowd favourite on the day, winning the the "People's Choice Award" voted on by our guests.
 
Many attendees were happy to get their Christmas wine orders sorted early, and whether they will be drinking Italian Soave, Margaret River Chardonnay or South Australian Shiraz, they will enjoy their wines knowing that there was an element of community contribution to their purchase.

Trees Planted! Quairading 2018.

A super-successful weekend this year at Quairading. 
 
About thirty keen tree planters from Rotary Subiaco, Subiaco Rotoract  and Rotary Western Endeavour joined Quairading locals, students from the Quairading District High School and the Churchlands Primary school - all supporting the Rotary Club of Quairading - to plant about 8,000 trees on saline land close to Quairading
 
The day began mistily, but soon became bright and sunny. (See photo album at end of story). Hard at work with Pottiputki and bucketfuls of seedlings the work was done with great enthusiasm.  Everyone was grateful for the work done by Clive and Bill who had ripped the land so that it easy to dig into.  They were also very entertained by the sight of the bogged ute and seeing it pulled out by the tractor.  Of course Bill and Clive also lit the fires that heated our morning tea and cooked the soups and sausages for lunch.  All of their work was was highly valued.

Supporting Orange Sky

The Rotary Club of Subiaco is very proud to be a major sponsor of Orange Sky's new laundry and shower van operating in the Perth South area. Club members Sioux Christiansen and Maarten Noordzy attended Orange Sky's welcome to the new van recently.
 
 
The club had been looking for a group working in a practical way to improve the lives of homeless people. Orange Sky's mission - to provide portable laundry and shower facilities to homeless people around Australia proved to be just the ticket. After presentations from Orange Sky and discussions about their operational needs in the Perth area the club decided to fund the new hybrid van's operational and maintenance costs for two years.

Jo Wheatley All Abilities Play Space 

Stage 1 of The All Abilities Play Space was opened on the 7th of June 2018 and named The Jo Wheatley All Abilities Play Space.  This wonderful facility has been carefully and thoughtfully constructed to provide people of all ages, all abilities and all cultures the opportunity to play together.   Initiated by Rotary 7 years ago, it is a collaboration between the Rotary Clubs of Nedlands, Subiaco & West Perth and The City of Nedlands.  You will find it at Beaton Park, The Esplanade, Dalkeith on the foreshore (just past the Perth Flying Squadron Yacht Club).  
 
It's so wonderful to see the equipment that allows children to share an experience regardless of their level of ability and inspiring to see the joy on the faces of those discovering it.  Listening to the happy sounds of children squealing with delight and laughing on their journey through different spaces that engage different senses and encourage imagination and adventure within a safe context is a pleasure.  Lots of "grandies" exercising along with their grandchildren as well.
 
Perhaps the people playing won't always notice the changing textures under their feet or appreciate the multiple roles an anchored rope can play but they will still feel smoothness, bumpiness and roughness, and they'll grab for the rope when they need it.
 
Visit our new photo album - Play Zones -  to see some of these features and details.

We are sorry to announce that the Rotary Bowelscan program in which we participated has been retired. Free bowelscans are now available subsidised by the Federal Government so the demand for the Rotary program has dwindled.

Thanks to Rotary Subiaco member Lia Abbott who has run the bowelscan program for the past few years. Lia will be looking for a new area of activity in Rotary in 2018.

PlaySpace Taking Shape

We are becoming very excited as "our" All-abilities Play Space begins to take shape.  Artists, designers, landscapers, engineers, planners, earth-movers, builders and project managers have all had something to add to this unique space. Children, too, were consulted about their needs and wants for a play space where families and children with different needs could play alongside each other, and are eagerly waiting for the Stage One opening early in 2018. 
 
So many people have been part of this project from its beginnings six years ago, its long gestation in the planning and funding phase, and now as construction is in full swing and and end in sight, one and all are really keen to finally see and to play.

Bowelscan is part of Rotary's national bowel screening program. It was established in 2007 with the slogan 'Catch cancer before it catches you'.
 
Rotary Bowelscan is the initiative of over 300 Rotary Clubs across Australia, working to reduce the number of lives lost to bowel cancer.
 
The programme runs during the month of May in every year to raise the awareness of the risks of bowel cancer and to encourage Australians most at risk (those aged over 40) to take the annual test.

Tree Planting in Quairading

Tree Planting is on again in 2019!  On July 26th the Rotary Club of Subiaco headed east to spend time with our friends in Quairading, to admire the hard working students from Churchlands Primary School and to plant several thousand trees ourselves.
 
Armed with our PottiPutki, we will be pushing and pulling and planting and unjamming, not to mention having a great time with the outstanding support offered by the Rotary Club of Quairading and their wonderful community.
 
Tree Planting is a highlight of the Churchlands Primary year as the students transfer their school knowledge about conservation and the environment into practical action to save saline land.

Power On!

On tiny Islas Verde in the Philippines San Agapito Elementary School  had no electricity. Their old generator was kaput! and their solar panels didn't work.  
 
With help from local businesses, Subi Rotary has turned the power back on, solar panels are working and they have ceiling fans! There's lots more to do. Follow this project as it grows.

From the President
 

               Did you know that generosity is deeply rooted in our biology?
A growing body of research shows that volunteering or donating has a positive impact on your physical and mental health, promotes healthy social connections and a sense of  purpose.
When I joined this Club I found I had joined with a group of positive happy people who knew they wanted to help.  The rewards have been many as have the opportunities and I encourage others to see for themselves.
For me it has been an amazing experience!

Finding Safe Haven

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

Saving lives in Ghana

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

India celebrates three years without polio

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
