Vocational Exchange

April 4 2017

In early 2017, the Rotary Clubs of Bendigo South and Bendigo, hosted a team of visiting Filipinos as part of a group vocational exchange.

Each distinguished in their professions, the visitors were home hosted by Rotarians and their partners and were hosted by businesses in Bendigo, to learn new skills to take home to their home country.

A gala dinner was held by the two host clubs at the Bendigo Club, where the visiting team members introduced themselves (and took plenty of photos!)

An official welcome to Bendigo for the team members was held at the renowned Bendigo Art Gallery, with members of the City of Greater Bendigo there to welcome them.

As part of the exchange, an Australian team went to the Philippines on a similar vocational exchange.
