September 08 is International Literacy Day

On November 17/65 UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) proclaimed September

08 to be International Literacy Day and it was first celebrated in 1966. It is a day to recognize the importance of literacy

and the connection of illiteracy to poverty and to prejudice against women.

Rotary clubs are encouraged to celebrate International Literacy Day during September. Some ways to recognize the event

may include:

1. invite a speaker with a literacy connection such as the library

or a school

2. thank a speaker with a library donation or donation of a

book to a school

3. launch a literacy project in your club

4. invite the District Literacy Chair to your club

Please email Sue at  sue.storie@sympatico.ca with the details of  your projects and I will share them on the

District website.
