Rotary Club – Literacy Endowment

The goal of Rotary Clubs worldwide is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

“Literacy is how people get things done.” – Elspeth Bowers

Rotary Clubs around the world have provided funding for educational literacy by opening schools, teaching adults to read and using alternate teaching methods for English as a Second Language students.

“When you teach somebody how to read, they have that for a lifetime.  It ripples through the community, one by one.”  – Mark Wilson

The Rotary Club of Mission Sunrise started this fund in 2011 to help increase literacy locally. This fund provides grants to local charity programs to help young and mature students learn to read. The Rotary Club of Mission Sunrise continues the worldwide objective of literacy and empowering people to succeed.
