"Rotary Changing Lives"
 
 

When you teach somebody how to read, they have that for a lifetime.

It ripples through the community, one by one.

The Rotary Foundation supports education through scholarships, donations, and service projects around the world. 

 

Rotary members make amazing things happen, like:

Opening schools: In Afghanistan, Rotary members opened a girls’ school to break the cycle of poverty and social imbalance.

Teaching adults to read: Rotary members in the United States partnered with ProLiteracy Detroit to recruit and train tutors after a study showed that more than half of the local adult population was functionally illiterate.

New teaching methods: The SOUNS program in South Africa, Puerto Rico and the United States teaches educators how to improve literacy by teaching children to recognize letters by sounds instead of names.

Making schools healthy: Rotarians are providing clean, fresh water to every public school in Lebanon so students can be healthier and get a better education.

Enhancing educational systems: In Kenya, Rotary clubs are working with the Global Partnership for Education and local and national governments to advance life-long learning opportunities for poor and marginalized children.

Our Impact on Education and Literacy

Wahroonga Rotary Club has been engaged in several such international projects for many years.

An exciting journey for those members and volunteers involved.
