Literacy Committee

Literacy Committee

CALL TO ACTION
 
Basic Education and Literacy is one of The Rotary Foundation’s Six Areas of Focus. We know that basic education and literacy are essential for reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging community and economic development, and promoting peace.
 
District 7090’s Literacy Committee is charged with assisting clubs within District 7090 to identify and promote literacy development in our local communities and the world community.
 
Currently, the committee’s top priority is the development of an INVENTORY of District 7090 Literacy Projects (local community or beyond – regional, national, international). This resource will serve as a means to showcase District 7090 Clubs that are contributing to the advancement of Rotary’s BASIC EDUCATION & LITERACY goal and encourage more Clubs to get involved in literacy initiatives.
 
If your Club is actively involved in any way with a literacy initiative - i.e. project leadership &/or partnership, funding support, etc., please message Margaret Andrewes, Chair, D7090 Literacy Committee.
 
Once your club is identified, the committee will reach out directly to collect the information needed to build your inventory entry. Please don’t delay, the committee is aiming to complete the inventory in May 2020.
