We take students who have graduated from Year 12 to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Cambodia where they work as volunteers, working on various projects that could be anything from building a classroom, teaching English, dental hygiene, gardening or whatever jobs are needed.
They also see all of the cultural highlights such as the Genocide Museum & the Killing Fields where they learn about Pol Pot’s regime and gain an understanding of the recent history of this poor country. They also visit the ancient temples of Angkor in Siem Reap, enjoy the local cuisine and have a lot of fun.

THE BIRTH TREE PROJECT
Registrations open, Unveiling Ceremony March 2017
Commemorate birth with a living monument
Rotary Peninsula 2.0 will plant one tree each year at Montague Park to commemorate the birth of children born in the Frankston community. A plaque with the name and birth date of each registered child will be placed at the base of the tree, with an Unveiling Ceremony each year.
Registrations are now open for all babies born in 2016 and this year all proceeds will be donated to the Paediatric Department of the Frankston Hospital.
The Fun Run is run by volunteers with 100% of money raised going back into the community.
2Km Childrens Run, 5 & 10Km Run, 5Km Walk. Family prices available.
We have now introduced a TEAM award – based on the number of Km your whole team contributes so even those doing the 2Km will add to your score.
