September is Basic Education & Literacy Month

Hard to believe summer is almost over and the kids are back to school. Now we sit behind the yellow school buses waiting for the kids to get on board.

One of the areas of focus of the Rotary Foundation is “Basic Education and Literacy”. Education is a very important component to the welfare and success of any individual and for society as a whole. We as Rotarians, community and business leaders, have an opportunity to help make sure our children and young people receive a good education and prepare them for a successful life. Through our international reach and the support of the Rotary Foundation, we can also improve the lives of people in the third world. Basic education and literacy usher in prosperity and lift communities out of poverty. Many Clubs in our District are already involved in programs and I encourage you to learn, adapt the best practices, and start programs in your community. Let “Rotary Connect the World”.
We also need to continue to educate ourselves, exchange ideas with other Clubs and inspire each other. The District is offering;

In the first two months of the new Rotary year, I have had the pleasure of visiting more than half of the Club in our District. I am very impressed and have been inspired by enthusiasm and commitment to “Make a Difference”.  I cannot wait to visit the remaining Clubs and learn about your good work in the communities.

Enjoy the last days of summer and let’s together “Connect the World”.
