Born to Read
adult reading a book to a childBorn to Read spreads the word about the importance of reading, talking, singing with children right from the start through outreach to families before birth, immediately after birth, and during the first three years of life. Last year, through these outreach strategies, we reached nearly 4,000 parents and distributed over 2,600 children’s books in our community. Learn more about the Born to Read program.
Education for Malawi
children from MalawiAs Rotarians, we engage in international service to help make the world a better place. In that spirit, in 2017, Club members traveled to the Mangochi District of Malawi to help construct a two-classroom block, lavatories, and desks for a new secondary school. The Malawi project is intended to help address critical educational needs for this remote area and help lift up young women and men, offering them a better life through education. In a country that was recently identified as the poorest in the world, we have the opportunity to make a great impact.
