Celebrate Basic Education and Literacy Month

September is Basic Education and Literacy Month. Rotary’s goal is to empower communities to support basic education and Literacy, reduce gender disparity in education and increase adult literacy. World Literacy Day is coming up on September 8th. Literacy Day serves as a reminder of the Importance of Literacy for individuals and society. Let’s get involved by – donating books, Time or Money and spreading the word on Social Media. Changing lives, support literacy projects. Read and share a story with your child / grandchildren.  Read, Write, Empower.

What is Rotary in education?
Rotary projects and activities help to give children access to an education for the very first time. We build schools, we supply books and computers for classrooms and we train teachers.
 
Rotary supports activities and training to improve education for all children and literacy for children and adults.

The Rotary Foundation enables Rotarians to ensure that all people have sustainable access to basic education and literacy by:
1. Involving the community to support programs that strengthen the capacity of communities to provide basic education and literacy to all;
2. Increasing adult literacy in communities;
3. Working to reduce gender disparity in education;
4. Supporting studies for career-minded professionals related to basic education and literacy.
