Gloria Buttsworth


From early beginnings as the leader of the Newcastle Chapter, then NSW Coordinator, Gloria saw DfG ‘go viral’ across Australia as more and more people responded to the need for sanitary hygiene for projects they were involved with across the world. Seeing the growth of T & C, gaining company status and tax deductibility – it has been a journey she never imagined. All this grew from an initial intent to sew Kits for a friend in Uganda. For her work in establishing DfG in Australia, Gloria was awarded Rotary International’s Paul Harris Fellow Award.
