FROM THE GOVERNOR'S DESK

September is Basic Education and Literacy Month
Do you know that more than 775 million people around the world over the age of 15 are illiterate, and over 60% of the world’s hungry are women and girls?
 
Rotary: making a difference through local and global grants to feed the hungry and teach others, particularly women, to read. This helps heal the hearts of many a community around the world.
 
Your generous donations to the Rotary Foundation provide the funds that are empowering Rotary around the world to “Get’er done”.  So, go to Rotary Direct now and sign up to give a monthly gift of learning.
 
Mark Wilson, a Rotary Club member, said:
 
“When you teach somebody how to read, they have that for a lifetime. It ripples through the community, one by one. “
