“Education promotes equality and lifts people out of poverty. It teaches children how to become good citizens. Education is not just for a privileged few, it is for everyone. It is a fundamental human right.” The words of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s were shared in 2012 and are quite reflective of the work of Rotarians over the many years. Each day, The Rotary Foundation reviews a number of projects where Rotarians are seeking to bring quality education to children throughout the world. It is known that when a population is educated, it has direct impact on other areas of focus including longer, healthier lives, higher gross domestic profit for countries and greater literacy rates for future generations.
With 1.2 million Rotarians, there is the ability to make significant impact on the lives of children and adults by bringing opportunities to access education. Last year 150 basic education and literacy grants were approved. Your financial contributions to The Rotary Foundation and your continued creation of educational global grants will ensure that education is provided and enhanced within the communities of the world Thank you for your support.
