What are you doing on Sept 8 - World Literacy Day? He is asking each club to register TODAY,  for the Sept 25 Rotary Foundation Walk and help us reach of goal, this year, of $1.17 million CDN to The Rotary Foundation.  He reminds us that prices are rising after Sept 5 and encourages all of us to register as soon as you can for the October 2022 District Conference ........

Greetings 7070 Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors and Earlyactors!  

September is here! Can you believe we are two months into the year?

September is Rotary International’s 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 8. Literacy Day serves as a reminder of the Importance of Literacy for individuals and society.

Basic Education and Literacy is one of Rotary’s 7 areas of focus.

More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. That’s 17 percent of the world’s adult population. 

Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.

Rotary clubs all over the world are taking action to enhance basic education and literacy in their communities. Every community has different needs and different opportunities for service.

When you teach somebody how to read, they have that for a lifetime. It ripples through the community, one by one.  - Mark Wilson  - Rotary Club member
