Christina Matthews is the West Australia Cricket Association (WACA) CEO.
Christina shared that it is an exciting time for WACA ground, funding for redevelopment, starting to remodel, community ground for East Perth. Northwest corner community public space. Program and participation for cricket based at WACA. Big events partner to Optus Stadium for preparation such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Wallabies.
Aboriginal and multicultural groups have access as well. Gymn, café, meeting rooms, indoor cricket centre, as a large indoor space. 125 years no government funding for infrastructure as the ground is owned by the WACA. Federal government don’t give to state sport infrastructure. Developed relationships. 30 million from Federal, State to announce 30 million, 10 million from WACA, CA 4 million.
Going into detailed design phase now. Exciting to have the Polly Farmer Foundation, a training and education for indigenous young people rather than a sporting group. Polly Farmer's name name was made in East Perth. Childcare centre with open space is planned and will be a partnerships with a group to run it.
A public swimming pool, as Perth is the only city without one in the CBD. State government wants a swimming pool. Geothermal heating will save $600,000 a year. A 50 meter pool, 11 meter learning pool with moveable floor for different heights is planned. The WACA committee has asked the City of Perth for 20 to 30 million for the pool construction. Who will operate the pool is yet to be determined.
The redevelopment will also have a digitised museum.

March is Water & Sanitation Month

Rotary supports local solutions to bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away. We share our expertise with community leaders and educators to make sure our projects succeed long-term.

Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education are basic necessities for a healthy environment and a productive life.

When people have access to clean water and sanitation, waterborne diseases decrease, children stay healthier and attend school more regularly, and mothers can spend less time carrying water and more time helping their families.

The Rotary Foundation is changing the world by providing grants for projects and activities around the globe and in your own backyard:

Rotary-USAID Partnership: Rotary has partnered with the United States Agency for International Development in Ghana, Madagascar, and Uganda to implement sustainable, long-term programs to improve water supplies, sanitation, and hygiene.

WASH in Schools Target Challenge: Rotary has challenged our members to develop sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene education projects in five countries: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, India, and Kenya.

WASH projects: Since 2013, The Rotary Foundation has invested in more than 1,000 WASH projects in more than 100 countries. Through grants from The Rotary Foundation and fundraising by Rotary clubs, our volunteers have supported water purification, hygiene education, latrine construction, and waste management.

$ 24 is all it takes to provide one person with safe water.

110 schools in Ghana have better sanitation and hygiene due to Rotary-USAID partnership.
2030 is the year Rotary hopes to finish providing everyone with safe water, sanitation, and hygiene.

Growing as a Rotarian

SHARE YOUR IDEAS with club leaders to help your club achieve its goals, enhance its projects, and improve the member experience. Your suggestions could become the next big initiative
in your club or community. See Be a Vibrant Club and learn more about club flexibility.
FIND A MENTOR or mentor another member to share professional expertise, community knowledge, and Rotary information.
ORGANIZE A CLUB EVENT or service project and gain new skills and experiences like event planning, public speaking, or managing volunteers.
TRY A NEW ROLE. Broaden your knowledge and apply your experience and skills in a club leadership role. Take the first step by asking where your club needs help. If you’ve already been in a club leadership role, try serving in a district role. Ask your district governor and governor-elect where your expertise and talents
could be useful.
BECOME A LEADER IN ACTION. Participate in your club’s leadership development program. If it doesn’t have one, talk to your club leaders and help develop one for the members of
your club.
